Antonio Brown hires Ed Wasielewski as new agent
Antonio Brown is still hoping for an opportunity to play in the NFL next season as he awaits potential disciplinary action from the league, and the star receiver has hired new representation to help him get his affairs in order.
Brown has hired agent Ed Wasielewski of EMG Sports, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.
With his continued desire to return to the NFL this season, free-agent WR Antonio Brown has hired veteran agent Ed Wasielewski of EMG Sports to represent him, the agent told ESPN Monday.

Brown used to be represented by NFL super-agent Drew Rosenhaus, but Rosenhaus ended his relationship with the 31-year-old back in January. Rosenhaus indicated in a letter that he would be open to working with Brown again in the future if Brown went to counseling.
Rosenhaus defended Brown through a lot, including the way Brown forced his way out of Oakland and the sexual assault allegations that were levied against the Pro Bowler. The final straw appeared to be when Brown shared a video of himself on Instagram live berating police officers in front of his children.
Brown is still likely to be suspended, but the NFL has dragged his investigation out. That is making it more difficult for him to find a new team, which is likely what the league wants at the moment.
