Antonio Brown Seems To Indicate The NFL is Blocking Teams From Signing Him (TWEET)
It has been weeks since the damning information came out that a woman was suing Antonio Brown and accusing him of sexually assaulted her twice during training sessions in June 2017, with the first incident claiming he kissed her without consent and exposed himself.
Later that month, Brown “began masturbating near her without her knowledge and ejaculated on her back” which led to him bragging about it in emails.
The final time came almost a year later where she says Brown “forced her down onto a bed, pushed her face into the mattress, and forcibly raped her.” Taylor tried to resist him, according to the lawsuit, screaming and shouting “no” and “stop” repeatedly. Brown allegedly refused.
Taylor released a statement following her lawsuit, “As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly difficult decision, I have found strength in my faith, my family, and from the accounts of other survivors of sexual assault.”
You would think the league would move at a faster rate to get this situation over with, but they have yet to even interview Brown and seem dead set on dragging their feet all the way into the offseason.
On Wednesday, a Twitter follower asked Brown why he is not back playing in the league, and Brown’s answer definitely indicates it’s because of the NFL.
Brown has not been suspended or placed on the commissioner’s exempt list, but the league did come out and state there was no reason to do so since the Patriots released him, which indicates that would go that route of putting him on the commissioner’s exempt list should he sign elsewhere.
That right there likely keeps any team from signing him and wasting their time with him on the roster.
