Antonio Brown, the former NFL All-Pro wide receiver whose career has been marked by controversy, joined the Albany Empire in March as a co-owner alongside Mike Kwarta, with Charlotte and Steve von Schiller as minority partners of the National Arena League football team.
Over the weekend, he claimed he was the sole owner.
“I’m the owner, 100 percent owner. I don’t take that lightly,” Brown said Saturday. “My job as the owner (is) to provide the players and community, the front office, everyone that experience, the experience of Albany, and I’m excited about that role.”
Despite his ownership, the National Arena League owner was ushered off the field by security during the team’s season-opening game on Sunday. The ex-Tampa Bay Buccaneers wideout shared a video to social media over the weekend showing the interaction where a security guard repeatedly told Brown and the person filming him to “get off the field right now.”
