NFL Could Place Antonio Brown On Commissioner's Exempt List

NFL Could Place Antonio Brown On Commissioner's Exempt List

After all of the drama that has surrounded the star receiver over the past several days, the Pro Bowl wide receiver appeared in a Patriots jersey for the first time as he practiced with his new team on Wednesday.

Brown intends to countersue Taylor for civil extortion, ESPN's Josina Anderson reported.

"Antonio takes these allegations very seriously", Rosenhaus said. The team will cooperate with any league investigation, the team spokesperson said in the same statement.

What does sexual assault lawsuit filed against Brown mean?

Doubling down on a statement released by Brown's personal attorney Tuesday evening, Rosenhaus claimed that the accusations were a "money grab". "Brown was entirely consensual".

While the details surface, some have become skeptical of the timing of the lawsuit, questioning why Taylor continued to work with AB after he allegedly assaulted her on multiple occasions.

When asked about the Brown's current situation off the field, Brady remained mum. The suit includes what it says are text messages from Brown bragging about the second assault. She counts several instances of sexual misconduct in her lawsuit, including him masturbating on her back, exposing himself to her and forcibly kissing her without her consent. Ben Watson's No. 84 and Gunner Olszewski's No. 80 weren't available for Brown because they are not allowed to change numbers after the start of the season.

McCann explains that according to Taylor, she was so "traumatized" by what happened between them that it took a while for her to come forward with this lawsuit against Brown. Taylor says she shouted "no" and "stop", but Brown refused. Heitner said she asked for tickets to a Pittsburgh Steelers game. But a freaky foot injury, fight with the National Football League over his helmet, skipped practices, multiple fines, a run-in with general manager Mike Mayock and his social media posts ultimately led to the decision to release him.

Ahead of the news, Brown was released from the Oakland Raiders over the weekend, then quickly signed with the New England Patriots, which is giving the athlete a one-year contract worth up to $15 million, Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed to ESPN.
