Antonio Brown released from Patriots after 1 game as wild, tumultuous year continues

Business Insider Sports 2 months ago

Antonio Brown was released from the New England Patriots on Friday in a sudden twist.

The star wide receiver played just one game with the Patriots.

The move continues what has been a wild, tumultuous year for Brown, who was traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Oakland Raiders in March, then demanded to be released from the Raiders following a series of bizarre incidents, then signed with the Patriots.

The Patriots released a statement on Twitter, saying they appreciated Brown's hard work but decided to move in a different direction.

In September, Brown was accused of sexual assault and rape by a physical trainer in a lawsuit. He denied the allegations.

A Sports Illustrated report in September also uncovered an account of sexual misconduct by Brown, in which he approached a painter in his house wearing nothing but a cloth.

In a series of text messages uncovered by Sports Illustrated and sent to the NFL on Thursday, Brown and a group of friends appeared to intimidate and threaten the painter, who remained anonymous, for her account in the original SI report.
