Antonio Brown says he won’t be playing in the NFL anymore
Star wide receiver Antonio Brown is saying on Twitter that he “will not be playing in the NFL anymore.”
Brown’s statement, part of a series of tweets Sunday morning, comes just days after he was released by the New England Patriots, the third NFL team to give up on the volatile player in the last year.
His effective retirement comes after a woman who once trained Brown accused him of rape in a federal lawsuit filed in Florida. His attorney, Darren Heitner, posted a lengthy statement to his website, saying: “Mr. Brown denies each and every allegation in the lawsuit.”
In other tweets on Sunday, Brown attacked several other NFL figures who have been accused of sexual misconduct.
