Publish date:

Former All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown took to Instagram to post a heartfelt tribute to NFL legend, Deion Sanders.

"I want to express gratitude to my mentor/ friend/ father figure Deion Sanders for taken time out of his busy life in these trying times to give me some guidance. I am deeply humbled and indebted to the knowledge you given me," Brown wrote in the caption.

"Being around yourself and family helped me in so many ways it unimaginable. As black men we don't usually reach out for help and we keep things bottled up. I appreciate the time. I appreciate the knowledge. I appreciate the love. My eyes have reopened and your words have me more focused than ever. I now see that Antonio is just as Great as AB. I just needed to prove that to myself !" he concluded by sending including a shoutout to Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd towards the end of the post.

Sanders appears to be helping Brown to get back into the league after he was not picked up by a team following a slew of bizarre events and behaviors.
