Antonio Brown remains adamant with his intentions to return to the New England Patriots, despite burning a plethora of organizational bridges on his way out of town last month.

Rumors ensued with a freaking petition actually being field for the franchise to re-sign the embattled wideout, and the fact that Tom Brady's receiving corps became even more depleted on Thursday night with Josh Gordon's knee injury will only see the murmurs blossom.

Well, it would appear that TB12 is one of the culprits fueling the buzz as the six-time Super Bowl champ went out of his way to like a Patriots-oriented Instagram post of AB's.

What makes Mr. Big Chest's post all the more alluring is the fact that the threw it up roughly an hour before New England kicked off against the Giants on Thursday night.

Can somebody, anybody out there, please tell us what a photo of a comic book-Wolverine laying in bed gazing at a picture frame means? If you can manage to assess that lunacy, please try and correlate it with Brown (in Pats threads) conversing with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. That'd be great.

As we know, however, Brady reportedly wasn't at all pleased with Robert Kraft's and Bill Belichick's decision to part ways with Brown.

Just a few weeks ago, Brady liked, then un-liked a Patriots-themed Instagram post of Brown. Are the two stars in cahoots behind the scenes?

We honestly have no idea as to what any of this social activity means, but it's certainly bound to get the rumors flowing. There's just no way that the Patriots even entertain the though of bringing in Brown for round two...right?
