Bill Belichick admits ‘there are some things we’re looking into’ with Antonio Brown
The allegations are piling up against Antonio Brown, and even New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is finding that it is difficult to completely ignore them.
On Friday, Belichick began his press conference by acknowledging that there are off-field issues going on with Brown that the Patriots are taking seriously. As expected, however, he said he would not have any further comment on the situation.

When reporters refused to ask questions about any topic or player other than Brown, Belichick ended the press conference.

Belichick does not often get bothered by media questions, and him saying they were looking into things sounded ominous for Brown.
The Patriots knew of the potential headaches they might have to deal with by signing Brown, but things have really only gotten worse for him since they brought him in. They were supposedly completely blindsided by the sexual assault lawsuit that was filed against Brown last week, and another woman has accused him of sexual misconduct since.
The latest issue involving Brown centers around some text messages that were shared with the public early Friday morning. They allegedly show that Brown was harassing and trying to intimidate the woman who made the most recent sexual misconduct allegation by attacking her credibility in a group text with his associates. The NFL is looking into all of the allegations, and there’s still a very real possibility that Brown could be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list.
