While Antonio Brown has been mired in off-field issues over the last year, there's no denying that he was one of the best wide receivers in the NFL when he played for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had at least 100 receptions and 1,200 yards for six straight years from 2013 to 2018.

He even handled punt return duties for the Steelers, with 186 returns over his career. He scored 4 punt return touchdowns, but none of those were as memorable as the infamous return he had against the Cleveland Browns in 2014.

You know it's a good return when there's only the punter left to beat, but Brown seems to have taken "beat" too literally.

Knowing what we do about Brown now, it may be easy to not give him the benefit of the doubt here, but it really did look like he was thinking he'd be able to hurdled Browns punter Spencer Lanning, especially as Lanning originally was going low .

Brown reportedly received a small fine (in addition to a 15-yard penalty) on the play, but Lanning came out unscathed in what was truly one of the most bizarre plays in the NFL in recent years.
