BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – After a bizarre and tumultuous short tenure with the Oakland Raiders that ended with his release this morning, it didn’t take long for wide receiver Antonio Brown to find a new place to play.

According to ESPN, Brown will be signing with the New England Patriots — breathing new life into the Bills-Patriots rivalry.

The Bills were reportedly trying to trade for the former Steelers wide receiver in the offseason, before he ultimately landed in Oakland with Jon Gruden and quarterback Derek Carr.

Brown took to social media following the rumors of a potential trade with the Bills and referred to it as “fake news”.

On Instagram, Brown seemingly made it official, showing him in a (photo shopped) Patriots jersey and hat.

The Bills host the Patriots at New Era Field on Sept. 29 and travel to New England in Week 16.
