New England Patriots release Antonio Brown amid rape allegations

Share

The Antonio Brown era in New England is over.

"The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown", a Patriots team spokesperson said in a statement on Friday afternoon. Brown is accused of sending that woman disturbing texts Wednesday after the report came out.

When he took to the field last Sunday, the seven-time Pro Bowler scored a touchdown for the Patriots as they beat the Miami Dolphins 43-0 in Florida.

Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, tweeted Friday that his client intends to continue his National Football League career and "hopes to play for another team soon" following his release by the Patriots.

Here's the extent of Brown's Patriots career: one game, 24 snaps, four catches, 56 yards, hardly any money and more headaches than any other player could create in less than two weeks.

Brown had missed extended time because of a cryotherapy "accident" in which he suffered frostbite on his feet, then he missed practices because of a helmet grievance, then almost came to blows with general manager Mike Mayock, then hired a public relations firm to brainstorm ways to self-sabotage his way off the team.

Britney Taylor, a former gymnast and personal trainer, who met Brown, 31, in college, filed a lawsuit earlier this month accusing him of sexually assaulting her multiple times and raping her on one occasion.

Brown has maintained any sexual contact with Taylor was consensual and described the legal action as an extortion attempt.

The New England Patriots are finished with wide receiver Antonio Brown. Brown's lawyer vehemently denied all accusations, and his agent described the woman's lawsuit as a lowly money-grab. The investigation into these allegations are "ongoing and will be pursued vigorously and expeditiously".

"As long as Mr". She said Brown was naked, holding a small hand towel over his genitals. First, it was reported Brown made unwanted sexual advances upon a female artist at his home in 2017. The text chain, with four other phone numbers on it, included photos of her and her children, with the person she believes is Brown encouraging others in the group to investigate the woman. According to the text messages, Brown wrote that the woman was a "super broke girl" and shared pictures of her kids and a link to her Instagram account.

Brown was released by Oakland and lost out on $30 million in a guaranteed contract, which was voided by the Raiders.
