People really love suing Antonio Brown. It was just earlier this year when the Tampa Bay Bucs WR was able to get a lawsuit stemming from assault allegations dismissed.
While one ended, another one has begun. According to the Tampa Bay Times, Brown faces a new civil lawsuit coming from the sports marketing company KCB Marketing. The report alleges Brown did not pay commission on $2.4 million that they say they helped him earn.
“In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Broward County, the company, KCB Marketing, said it worked with Brown for several years to help him secure marketing deals,” the Tampa Bay Times’ Matt Baker wrote. “They signed an agreement in July 2017 to continue working together and to resolve Brown’s previously existing, undisclosed outstanding balance for commission.”
The allegations go back to 2018 when he was on the Pittsburgh Steelers roster.
KCB Marketing are reportedly seeking over $100,000 in damages.
Upon Brown’s announced signing in April, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and Tom Pelissero reported that Brown can earn up to $6.25 million with the new one-year deal, including incentives.
According to ESPN NFL insider Field Yates, Brown will receive a $2 million signing bonus and make a base salary of $1.1 million, plus another $900,000 for per-game achievements. Brown will also make $333,333 for 50 receptions and $333,334 if he makes it to 70. He will earn $333,333 for 600 yards and $333,334 for 800 yards. He also gets $333,333 for five touchdowns and $333,3333 for seven touchdowns. With another Super Bowl win, Brown could earn another $250,000.
