Maybe don’t bet Antonio Brown when it comes to anything football related.
Brown took to Twitter to point out that Butler hasn’t paid up on a $30,000 bet that he could keep Brown from catching a pass in the end zone.
The wager was made when Butler was working out with Russell Wilson and Brown. Butler revealed the terms of the bet during a recent episode of Hot Ones. While Butler shared plenty of stories about being friends with Mark Wahlberg and competing with Michael Jordan, Brown was focused on the story that involved him being owed $30K, for obvious reasons, per Complex.
Brown and Butler have been friends for a while now. The pair work out together and the relationship extends beyond the confines of the weight room. Brown has been known to stop in to Butler play from courtside seats, since all the way back in his Bulls days. Butler has yet to respond, but what’s 3oK between friends who are millionaires.
Neither guy is hurting for money. Brown was traded to the Raiders after forcing his way out of Pittsburgh, and will reportedly seek a new deal that could make him the highest paid receiver in the NFL. Butler left behind a similarly sour situation in Minnesota when the Timberwolves traded away the All-Star for a few bit players and a second-round draft pick in 2022.
Here’s hoping Jimmy pays the 30K to AB before Brown takes the 50 Cent route to collect.
