Antonio Brown Says He Done Playing In NFL + Slams Robert Kraft, Ben Roethlisberger & Shannon Sharpe
Over the weekend (Sept. 22nd) Antonio Brown announced that he will never play for a NFL team again while criticizing others associated with the league. Sharing the news on social media, Brown states that owners of NFL teams shouldn’t be able to take back money players were guaranteed. He writes,
“Will not be playing in the NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals, do whatever they want at anytime.”
“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.”
As previously reported, Brown was recently released from the Patriots just two weeks after being signed. According to reports, his release from the team came from the top of the franchise,
“The decision to release Brown was led by owner Robert Kraft.”
The troubled former NFL star blasted the owner of his former team, Robert Kraft for allegedly paying for a prostitute. He writes,
“Kraft got caught in the parlor, AB speculations fired, different strokes, different folks clearly.”
Brown then takes his frustration out on his former quarterback from Pittsburgh, Ben Roethlisberger. Brown shared an article of Roethlisberger’s 2010 accusation of sexual assaulting a woman in Georgia which he was only given a four game suspension. He writes,
“4 games for Big Ben. Crazy world, I’m done with it.”
Brown also unleashed on ESPN TV personality Shannon Sharpe. On Saturday (Sept. 21st) Sharpe reposted a video of Brown learning of his previous release from the Raiders and called his actions in the video immature.
1.9M ppl watched this video 2 weeks ago, applauding this ?ish behavior. What do the 1.9M ppl think today? I’ll leave you with this: Talent is God-given; be humble. Fame is man-given; be thankful. Conceit is self-given; be careful. pic.twitter.com/uo5y3iWDOU

Just as his former teammate in Pittsburgh, Brown also shared Sharpe’s 2010 accusations of sexual assault. He wrote,
”Shannon Sharpe, the funny guy on tv, still after this.”
Sharpe took to Twitter to respond, sharing his case was dismissed as the woman was accused of stalking the ESPN personality.
Brown’s deal with Nike was also voided in light of several accusations. A spokesperson for Nike said on Wednesday (Sept. 18th),
“Antonio Brown is not a Nike athlete.”
Brown’s first accuser, Brittney Taylor filed a lawsuit against him in the Southern District of Florida Tuesday (Sept. 10). In the court documents, Taylor alleged that Brown assaulted her on three different occasions. Two allegedly occurred in June 2017. Taylor said that’s when Brown allegedly exposed himself and then kissed her without her permission.
On Thursday (Sept. 19th), another woman came forward against the receiver claiming Brown allegedly was involved in a January 2019 domestic dispute with the mother of one of his five children. In the altercation, Brown allegedly pushed his baby mother out of his home causing some scarring.
