Antonio Brown must be content on not playing anymore in 2019, because he continues to open his phone everyday, jump on Twitter and say something about his former teams that he barely played for.
When the New England Patriots released Antonio Brown just eleven days after signing him, it was reported that the move came as a result of him allegedly sending intimidating text messages to a female that accused him of unwanted sexual advances. However, Brown is singing a different tune.
The free agent WR says his release was actually due to the money the Patriots were scheduled to pay him instead of the messages.
“Wasn’t the phone think it was the price tag,” Brown wrote in response to an individual on Twitter that told him he should have stayed off of his phone.
Brown signed a 1-year deal that was worth up to $15 million that also included a $9 million signing bonus. But, he lost all of his money upon his release, which prompted him to file a grievance against the Patriots as well as the Raiders.
Brown decided to further bolster his point by stating he and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, had just talked on the phone the Friday before his release and spoke on how the Patriots did not want to pay him $5 million in bonus money.
At this point, it’s Brown’s words against the Patriots. It’s not what you know, it’s what you can prove.
