Britney Taylor to meet with NFL over Antonio Brown allegations Monday
Antonio Brown will not be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list ahead of Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, but the star receiver’s status could change as early as next week.
Britney Taylor, the woman who filed a sexual assault lawsuit against Brown in court earlier this week, is expected to meet with NFL officials on Monday to discuss the case, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports. The league is hoping to wrap its investigation up quickly, so officials will likely meet with Brown later in the week and then determine if any disciplinary action is warranted.
As of now, there have been no criminal charges filed against Brown. That is why the NFL has chosen to wait until speaking with both him and Taylor before making a decision about whether or not Brown should be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list.
Taylor says Brown sexually assaulted her twice in 2017 and raped her in 2018. Brown’s lawyers and agents have dismissed the allegations as nothing more than a “money grab” from a woman who used to be friends with Brown and had a consensual sexual relationship with him. Neither the New England Patriots nor the Oakland Raiders knew of the allegations against Brown prior to the lawsuit being filed, as Brown and Taylor had been in confidential legal talks for months.
Brown is expected to play against the Dolphins on Sunday, and numerous reporters have heard the Patriots will feature him heavily.
