Report: Antonio Brown wants off-field issues resolved within next few weeks
Despite what you’ve heard, Antonio Brown very much wants back into the NFL, and he wants it to happen soon.
According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Brown is hoping to have his off-field issues and investigations resolved within the next few weeks. He will wait until that happens to sign with a new team to ensure that he knows he will be able to play immediately, but is eager to clear things up as quickly as possible.
Brown is facing multiple allegations of sexual assault from a civil suit, which the NFL is investigating under its personal conduct policy. The report states that NFL investigators expect to speak with Brown, even though he’s a free agent.
In the immediate aftermath of his release from the New England Patriots, Brown claimed he was done with the NFL. Few believed that, and sure enough, now that some time has passed, he clearly wants to play again. Nobody will take a chance on him until the ongoing investigations are over, and no matter how much he wants those expedited, it’s not really up to Brown.
