Antonio Brown starts Sunday by trashing NFL, Robert Kraft on Twitter

Antonio Brown says he won't play in the National Football League anymore and took shots at New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in a series of tweets sent Sunday morning.

The Patriots cut the controversial wideout on Friday afternoon, five days after Brown caught four passes for 56 yards and scored a touchdown in his debut with the team.

And that the NFL Players Association doesn't do anything.

Ever since the circus around Antonio Brown started with the Raiders there have been rumors that he would end up in the XFL.

Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowl receiver, landed with the Patriots after he was released by the Oakland Raiders due to several off-the-field incidents, including a heated confrontation with general manager Mike Mayock.

Brown also took a shot at former Steelers teammate Ben Roethlisberger, who was twice accused of sexual misconduct.

Brown brought up Sharpe stepping down from CBS in 2010 amid sexual assault allegations that he was facing.

We knew if we had him, my goodness, that could be insane because he's so good as a football player. "If he didn't, awesome". Wiliams had six catches for 105 yards, including a game-sealing 10-yard catch on third down after the two-minute warning.


"My phone started ringing early this morning, fellow fantasy players called me and said, 'Have you been watching what Antonio Brown is saying this morning?'" Simpson told his 909,000 Twitter followers in a video.

According to a Sports Illustrated story, a second woman, who as a victim of sexual harassment is not being identified, was working at Brown's home when she turned around to find him standing there naked except for a small towel covering his genitals.

Brown is facing allegations of sexual assault, sexual misconduct and rape, which all surfaced during his time with the Patriots. He ripped into New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft for his charges of soliciting prostitution.

His effective retirement comes after a woman who once trained Brown accused him of rape in a federal lawsuit filed in Florida.

Someone needs to delete the Twitter app from Brown's phone, or maybe just take his entire phone away, because he's not doing himself any favors.

Brown signed a one-year, $15 million contract with the Patriots that included $9 million guaranteed.
