The Eagles need help at WR. Antonio Brown has been speculated as a possibility for Philadelphia. Josina Anderson has been breaking Eagles news all season long.

Now, Anderson, tweets that Brown is set to meet with the league next and NFL teams are still interested. Time to connect the dots?

Brown, 31, has had a tumultuous year, to say the least. Brown was released by the Raiders before playing his first game with the team in September, signed by the Patriots, but then released again on September 20 following allegations of sexual and personal misconduct. The worry, for teams interesting in adding AB, is the NFL placing him on their exempt list once he signs with a new team. 

Ian Rapoport reports the NFL's investigation into Brown is "not expected to conclude any time soon."

Later on Thursday, Brown went off in a tweet saying he'll never play in the NFL again

Andddd that’s all folks. --

Earlier this week, Stephen A. Smith ranted about why the Eagles should take a shot on Brown

“You damn right they should," Smith said on ESPN's First Take on the Eagles signing Brown. "This is a team that has the 21st ranked passing attack and you got receivers all over the place dropping passes. I challenge anybody to show me one quarterback in the league that has had wide receivers drop more passes than the Philadelphia Eagles have dropped from Carson Wentz this season. And yet Carson Wentz still only have four interceptions on this entire season and about 15 touchdowns. The Eagles are just a half game out of first place. (Ronald) Darby is back in your secondary. (Jalen) Mills is back in your secondary. Even though they may not be great, the fact of the matter is they are an upgrade from those cats they had out there when those brothers couldn’t play."

With DeSean Jackson going on IR earlier this week, Philadelphia has already brought back WR Jordan Matthews to help their struggling wide receiver room.
