Wild Twitter Reaction to Antonio Brown Release Includes AB Himself

Antonio Brown might no longer be a Raider, but the memes are just getting started. 

Oakland cut the superstar wide receiver Saturday morning following months of drama, and the 29-year-old is in need of a new job. The NHL's Vancouver Canucks pitched a career change to the four-time All-Pro on Twitter, and Brown then made his first social-media post since literally "@'ing" the Raiders to release him by ... accepting the Canucks' offer? 

Imagining Brown in the NHL invites to mind the possibiltiy of piping-hot #PleaseLikeMySport takes that would follow. 

That wasn't the only professional pivot some envisioned for Brown. 

Befitting of a polarizing star in the social-media age, there were more jokes to be had on Twitter.

There were also plenty of cold takes, but none better than from Brown himself and New York's No. 1, Mike Francesa. 

If Brown's recent history is any indication, this surely isn't the last we'll see of him -- and any ensuing memes -- on social media.
