Antonio Brown Scheduled To Meet With NFL Next Week

     

Update:

Antonio Brown has since deleted the prior Tweet, explaining that he is “very frustrated,” but “determined” to return to the NFL. 


Despite the fact there are reportedly teams still interested in signing free-agent WR Antonio Brown, the veteran receiver returned to Twitter again on Thursday to put that in doubt, saying he would never play in the NFL again. 


According to Josina Anderson, current free-agent WR Antonio Brown is scheduled to meet with the NFL next Wednesday to discuss the ongoing investigation into allegations of rape and sexual harassment

Anderson notes Brown is eager to present his side of the story as he’s received interest from some teams in signing him pending the resolution of his case. 

According to Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, there are “a few teams that are very interested in signing Antonio once this process is over.” The Seahawks were reportedly one of the teams doing their homework on Brown before eventually claiming Josh Gordon on waivers. 

Since being released from the Patriots and filing grievances against both Oakland and New England seeking to recoup $40 million in salary, Brown has kept a lower profile.

Brown, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2010. He was in the third year of his five-year, $72.71 million contract when the Steelers traded him to the Raiders back in March. 

The Raiders later signed Brown to a new contract worth $50.125 million and includes $30.125 million guaranteed. However, Oakland made the decision to release Brown before the start of the season and he later signed a one-year deal worth up to $15 million with the Patriots.

Brown lasted just 11 days in New England.  

In 2019, Brown appeared in one game for the Patriots and caught four passes for 56 yards receiving and one touchdown.

We’ll have more regarding Brown as the news is available.
