Antonio Brown drilled by exercise machine in workout video

While Antonio Brown’s banishment to NFL purgatory is an entirely self-inflicted case of potential career suicide, the out-of-work wide receiver’s comical and presumably painful workout mishap is simply the result of some really bad luck.

Footage from one of Brown’s recent workouts has surfaced on social media. The reasonable assumption is that Brown shares these kind of videos to showcase how he’s keeping himself in peak physical condition.

Unfortunately, things take a turn for the worse in this particular dispatch. Following an impressive set of bench presses at what is believed to be his 84/7 training facility in Florida, things go terribly awry.

As he gets up off the bench and moves away from the machine, some swinging part from another piece of workout equipment comes out of nowhere, drilling Brown.

Given how poorly things have been going for Brown — of course due solely to his self-destructive ways — this video arguably serves as an unfortunate metaphor for the mercurial wide receiver’s ongoing career downward spiral.

It merits noting that Brown appeared no worse for wear and relatively uninjured after getting viciously trucked by the piece of workout equipment. That’s a good thing, as Brown is doing his level best — at least for now — to make amends for his transgressions by showing some semblance of humility as he continues his extended apology tour.
