Antonio Brown Is Finished With The NFL

Football | 9/23/19

Antonio Brown is not done making headlines just yet. The star wide receiver sent out a series of tweets on September 22nd announcing that he will no longer play in the NFL. The announcement comes after numerous controversies surrounding the player in the last few weeks.

“Will not be playing in the @NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at anytime” said one tweet from Brown.

“We will see if the @NFLPA hold them accountable sad they can just void guarantees anytime going on 40m 2 months will see if they pay up” he continued.

Both Brown’s $29.125 million in guaranteed money from the Oakland Raiders and a $9 million signing bonus from the New England Patriots have both been revoked according to ESPN.

The Raiders fined Brown for conduct detrimental to the team and decided to release him on September 7th. Brown then moved to the Patriots but was released from their organization on September 20th. The Patriots are withholding the signing bonus because Brown did not disclose pertinent information and is being accused of sexual misconduct by an artist.

Brown is being sued by his former trainer, Britney Taylor, for multiple allegations of sexual assault.

Since announcing he will not be returning to the NFL, it has been confirmed that Brown has enrolled in online classes at Central Michigan University to finish his college degree. He posted an Instagram story with the caption “back to school” and CMU has confirmed he is enrolled in online classes.
