Antonio Brown Wants To Resolve Off-Field Issues & Return To NFL
Former NFL’er Antonio Brown recently revealed on social media that he was not interested in his return to the NFL. On Saturday (Oct 12th), AB’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus disputed the wide receiver’s tweeted vowing to never play in the NFL again. According to reports, AB wants to return to the field.
“Despite saying last month that he wouldn’t play in the NFL anymore, wide receiver Antonio Brown wants to resolve his off-field issues so he can get back onto the field soon.”
The troubled free agent receiver recently touched on wanting his job back with the New England Patriots. In his video, AB stated:
“The best receiver right now is at home in Miami. If you guys follow the Patriots, tell them to call me. They still gotta pay me, so might as well let me earn it.”
During this Instagram Live, Antonio Brown offers to return to Patriots. Also says bunch of other stuff, obviously.
"Tell em call me. They still gotta pay me, might as well let me earn it."

As previously reported, AB has been accused of sexual harassment.
He was first accused on Sept. 10 of raping his former trainer Britney Taylor in May 2018. Taylor, Brown’s former trainer, alleges the wide receiver sexually harassed her on three occasions, including the alleged rape last year.
Days later, another allege victim came forward accusing AB of sexual harassment while she was hired by the receiver to paint a mural on a wall of his Pittsburgh-area home in 2017. She tells Sports Illustrated that while she was working in his home, he openly flirted with her while being nude.
“He was flirty with me but I paid him no mind because I was there on business, plus, I had already seen him with multiple girls in the short time I was with him. I was about 40% done on the second day, and I’m on my knees painting the bottom, and he walks up to me butt-ass naked, with a hand cloth covering his [penis] and starts having a conversation with me.”
Less than two weeks after signing AB, the New England cut the talented receiver.
AB is currently seeking $30 million from the Raiders, including guarantees from 2019 and 2020 totaling $29 million, along with a $1 million signing bonus, $860,294 for a week of salary and $215,000 in fines.
In addition, a $9 million signing bonus from the Patriots, along with $1 million in base salary and $64,062 for a Week 1 check.
