Hall of Fame NFL coach Tony Dungy had some stern words for Raiders-turned-Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown on Saturday.
Among them: Brown “thinks he’s the victim” and Brown will “be the big loser in the end.”
Dungy, who won the Super Bowl while coaching the Indianapolis Colts from 2002 to 2008, revealed his feelings about the drama involving 31-year-old Brown on Twitter.
I feel sorry for Antonio Brown. He’s been blessed with amazing talent but he’s lost track of the fact that football is a team game. So is life. He thinks he’s the victim but he’s missing out on the real joy that comes from being part of a team. He’ll be the big loser in the end!

He said the former Central Michigan University and Steelers player was “blessed with amazing talent” but has “lost track of the fact football is a team game.”
He went on to say that he “feels sorry for” Brown, who is “missing out on the real joy that comes from being part of a team.”
A sixth-round pick by the Steelers in 2010, Brown has racked up more receptions and receiving yards than any other player in the past nine seasons.
After requesting to be traded from Pittsburgh earlier this year due to, among other reasons, a rocky relationship with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Brown landed with the Raiders during the off-season.
