Well, this has the potential to be bad.
Hours before Antonio Brown found himself off the Oakland Raiders roster, a video surfaced on Twitter from @incarceratedbob showing a series of messages between what appears to be Brown and an unnamed individual who says they have audio from a personal trainer that is supposedly extorting the Patriots receiver over false sexual assault claims.
The person messaging Brown claims to have evidence that will prove his innocence.
During the long exchange, the then-Raiders wide receiver says that he will pay for this information in cash and asks for it to be emailed to him for his records.
“While this interaction could be on the “up and up,” there are some factors that make it appear to be slightly shady. For example, Brown is shown asking for the identity of this mysterious lady during the conversation, but she will only say that her name is Janet. Additionally, he asks to video chat, but she declines due to being in a car with other people.
Finally, Janet also alludes to the Oakland Raiders having knowledge of these claims and wanting to leak the information to the world. According to the conversation, a security guard could be the source of potential rumors.”
Again, take this information with a grain a salt. With technology these days, anybody could fake this and make it look real. For now, this is just a rumor coming from an unknown source and is not being presented as facts.
