On Friday, Antonio Brown was dealt another crushing blow when the New England Patriots released him from the roster less than two weeks after signing him following two woman issuing separate accusations of sexual misconduct and sexual assault.
In total, he spent just 11 days with the franchise before he wore out his welcome.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, “Brown’s NFL career is on pause and possibly could even be over.”
Associated Press columnist Barry Wilner believes that might be true as well.
The NFL is still investigating multiple claims against Brown, but haven’t found anything so far as they stated in a statement released hours after he would become a free agent again.
According to Jay Glazer, there were only a couple teams who showed interest in signing Brown before he joined the Patriots, However, Glazer adds that this list will probably be “whittled down to zero for the foreseeable future.”
Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, issued the following statement: “It’s unfortunate things didn’t work out with the Patriots. But Antonio is healthy and is looking forward to his next opportunity in the NFL. He wants to play the game he loves and he hopes to play for another team soon.”
As of right now, it is hard to see any team taking a chance on him with so many off the field issues hanging over his head.
