Antonio Brown Apologizes To Patriots Owner Robert Kraft: Sorry For The Bad Media & Drama!
Former NFL wide receiver, Antonio Brown has taken accountability for his recent behavior. On Tuesday (Nov. 19th), the former New England Patriot player took to Twitter to apologize to Patriots owner, Robert Kraft for his short-lived stint with the reigning Super Bowl champions. In his message, he writes:
“Mr.Kraft I apologize sincerely to you and your organization! All I wanted to be was an asset to the organization; sorry for the bad media and the drama ! Thank you sincerely AB”
Back in September, the Patriots took a chance with the troubled receiver, signing AB to a 1-year/$15 million contract following his fall out with the Oakland Raiders. Just ten days later, the team revealed their decision to release him in statement.
”The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time.”
Days after being cut, the troubled former NFL star blasted the owner of his former team for allegedly paying for a prostitute. He writes,
“Kraft got caught in the parlor, AB speculations fired, different strokes, different folks clearly.”
Since his release from the Patriots, AB has battled with making his return to the field, promising to never play for the NFL again. Weeks after being cut, he seemingly asked for his job back in an Instagram Live video. AB tells his viewers on the video,
“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."

Reportedly, his cut from the Patriots is in relation to the 7-time Pro-Bowler’s multiple sexual allegations he has faced, including former trainer, Britney Taylor. AB’s first accuser filed the allegations on Sept. 10 in the Southern District of Florida that includes two alleged incidents in June 2017.
Just a week after, another woman came forward with claims against Brown who hired her to paint a mural on a wall of his Pittsburgh-area home in 2017. While at Brown’s residents, the woman alleges the receiver sexually harassed her as she painted his mural. She tells Sports Illustrated,
“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.”
According to reports, the receiver met with the NFL late last week to address his ongoing sexual assault allegation. Reportedly, the meeting lasted about “eight hours,” and there could be follow-ups before a decision is made about his future.
AB’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus disputed the wide receiver’s series of tweets that vows to never play in the NFL again. He reportedly says,
“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.”
In recent reports, AB has continued to become more and more frustrated with his alleged allegations, so much so, he has taken his anger out online. In a previous tweet earlier this month, AB explains his actions while calling out the NFL for it’s unfair treatment of black athletes who give their 100 percent. He also says while the players fight on and off the field, the front office members do nothing but make millions. He states,
“Imagine conforming to a system giving it a 100 percent to see them treat me like this is unfairly! Making money off my sweat and blood F–k the nfl. I’ll never play in that sh*t, treat black people the worse! Clear my name and go f–k your self.”
