The New England Patriots on Friday released embattled wide receiver Antonio Brown after just one game following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct that triggered an National Football League investigation.
It'll be hard for any receiver in the New England Patriots locker room to put up a career year. "We don't get into specifics of sports marketing relationships".
Just hours after requesting his release from the Raiders, the Patriots signed him.
The New England Patriots have chose to release Antonio Brown amid a number of off the field issues, including the rape allegations filed against him by his former trainer. She never thought of reporting Brown to the authorities as the star never contacted her back, but with the recent rape allegations by Britney Taylor, she made a decision to become a part of the moment.
Brown practiced with the Patriots in the aftermath of Taylor's lawsuit becoming public and scored a touchdown in his debut against the Dolphins.
This marked the first time Brown has addressed reporters since joining the Patriots on September 9. Troubling allegations from other people have followed.
The woman told Sports Illustrated in a previous report that Brown hired her in 2017 to paint a mural in his home but fired her when she ignored his unwanted sexual advance.
