Terry Bradshaw has a question: “What’s the over/under of him lasting in New England?” 

The “him” is referring to Antonio Brown, a fellow former Pittsburgh Steeler who signed with the Patriots earlier this week after forcing his release from the Oakland Raiders. On Tuesday, Brown was named in a civil lawsuit on alleged charges of sexual assault and rape by a former personal trainer, but he will be eligible to play Week 2 and possibly make his Patriots debut Sunday against the 

Bradshaw, a four-time Super Bowl winning quarterback and FOX NFL Sunday analyst, has several issues with Brown, chief among them the 31-year-old’s comportment as a teammate. Bradshaw has a simple plan of how he’d handle a receiver like Brown. 

“I cannot emphasize how I cannot stand and have a disdain totally for players like that,” Bradshaw told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I don’t want any part of them. I wouldn’t like them. They would hate me if they were on our team. They would hate me because I wouldn’t throw to him.

“I will not put up with that kind of behavior. You don’t win with it. Why haven’t we won more Super Bowls? There is talent, (but) it’s just guys like him. Let him go and his brand and whatever it is he’s doing.”

Brown’s exit from Pittsburgh this offseason was filled with animosity. He bailed on his team prior to a must-win Week 17 contest, and he was traded to the Raiders for a third- and fifth-round pick in March. 

“I had no idea they catered to Brown as much as they supposedly did,” Bradshaw said. “I can’t stand players like Antonio Brown.”

New England has been one of Pittsburgh’s primary rivals over the last two decades. Bradshaw does not care Brown is in enemy territory, though. 

“Let New England have him,” Bradshaw said. “Maybe he becomes Billy Graham, I don’t know. I seriously doubt it, seriously doubt it.

“I’m not pulling for him, I can promise you that.”
