Antonio Brown says he is done playing in NFL, rips Robert Kraft

Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown says he is no longer planning to play football in the NFL, but he is going to fight to collect money from both the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders.

Brown took to Twitter on Sunday morning to say he is done playing in the NFL and rip team owners for being able to “cancel deals and do whatever they want at any time.” He also took a shot at Patriots owner Robert Kraft for releasing him amid sexual assault allegations after Kraft was recently involved in a prostitution sting at a massage parlor.

Brown seemed like he left New England on good terms after the team released him on Friday, as he thanked Bill Belichick and told Tom Brady to go win another Super Bowl for him. However, it’s possible the star receiver feels differently after a report claimed Kraft was furious about the text messages Brown sent to the woman who most recently accused him of sexual misconduct. Brown could also be responding to the various reports that the Patriots — like the Raiders — have voided his contract guarantees and are not planning to pay him.

The $40 million number Brown mentioned also includes the $30 million guaranteed he was supposed to get from the Raiders, but they are not planning to pay him after he violated the terms of his contract while forcing his way off the team.

Brown is facing a sexual assault lawsuit and seems to have violated the NFL’s personal conduct policy with the harassing and intimidating texts he sent, and the league has already made it clear his playing status will be in question even if he’s signed. It’s hard to take anything he says as gospel, but it’s certainly possible he has played his last down in the NFL.
