Antonio Brown is Back Home After Being Fired From The Patriots — And He Doesn’t Look Too Happy About it
September 22, 2019
A turbulent few months it has been for wide receiver Antonio Brown. Traded by the Pittsburgh Steelers, released by the Oakland Raiders, and now released by the New England Patriots as well.
Brown was seen exiting his private jet Saturday as he touched down in Miami. He looked sad, probably because of all that has happened recently. Even though he tried to put on a brave face, it looks like he was disappointed to be released by the Patriots.
The Patriots decided to cut ties with the wide receiver only after eleven days because of the sexual harassment allegations made against him. After being accused of raping two women, Brown reportedly attempted to contact one of his accusers with menacing texts. That was the last straw for the team, who shortly after stated:
“The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time.”
The league also came forward to state:
“Antonio Brown was released today by the New England Patriots and is currently an unrestricted free agent. Our office is presently investigating multiple allegations, some of which are the subject of pending litigation. We have as yet made no findings regarding these issues. The investigation is ongoing and will be pursued vigorously and expeditiously.
“As long as Mr. Brown is a free agent, placement on the Commissioner’s exempt list is not appropriate. If he is signed by a club, such placement may become appropriate at any time depending on the status of the investigation. Upon the conclusion of the investigation, he may also be subject to discipline if the investigation finds that he has violated the law or league policies.”
So far, there hasn’t been an NFL team willing to sign Brown.
