    XFL fan account drags Antonio Brown amid Twitter feud with receiver

    Antonio Brown has a lot of time on his hands.

    In fact, he has all the time in the world because he created massive amounts of drama in Pittsburgh and Oakland before going to New England and being released amid sexual-assault allegations that still are being investigated.

    With Brown working out in Miami and spending a ton of time online -- way too much for most people's liking -- the four-time All-Pro receiver has been spouting off on Twitter. Recently, Brown has taken shots at the Raiders, Patriots, quarterback Derek Carr and almost everyone not named Tom Brady.

    Brown's NFL future remains in doubt, although a number of contenders reportedly are interested in bringing him in once the investigation ends. But, if Brown's NFL career is over, there is another option: The XFL.

    Vince McMahon is rebooting the league with a Feb. 8, 2020 start date. Brown, however, wants nothing to do with that.

    Triggered much?

    Well, an XFL fan account wasn't about to take that lying down. The twitter handle "realXFLfootball" fired back at Brown, dragging him with brutal honesty.

    Find the lie.

    Brown is unlikely to see an NFL field for the rest of the season, and with him seemingly uninterested in the XFL, it appears he'll just have to post more workout videos to Instagram and hope the phone rings.

    Editor's note: An earlier version of this story attributed the Twitter account that Brown feuded with as the XFL's official Twitter account instead of a fan account.
