SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former BYU and NFL quarterback Steve Young compared today’s NFL to the NBA with big-time players like Antonio Brown demanding and receiving trades or waivers.

“It is now the NBA…obvioulsy Antonio Brown proved it,” said Young, an analyst for Monday Night Football.

Antonio Brown has dominated NFL headlines since the beginning of NFL training camp. From holding out over wanting to wear an outdated helmet to when the Raiders finally released him after an altercation with their General Manager – the saga seemed to come to an end when the Patriots signed him.

A few days later, multiple women accused Brown of sexual misconduct so it seems the drama is just beginning for Brown and his new team.

The Patriots are somewhat notorious for picking up players with issues other teams don’t want to deal with, like Randy Moss or more recently cornerback Aqib Talib.

Another team faced with players demanding trades is the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins lost their first two games, each by more than 40 points. After their season opener, it was reported that multiple players were calling their agents, attempting to get traded.

“They’re (NFL) is going to have to come together as a league and say we’re not going to do this. It’ll be insane,” said Young before the Jets lost to the Browns Monday night.

Young continued the rant expressing fear that players who are on a bad team will immediately jump ship to a  better team, which could eventually create an unfair advantage in the league.

“Every guy that’s on a bad team is like ‘get me outta here, get me to the Patriots, get me to the Chiefs’,” Young concluded the heated rant.
