Antonio Brown released from the New England Patriots amid an NFL Investigation | CBS Sports HQ

  • Published on Sep 20, 2019
  • Antonio Brown's tenure with the New England Patriots was short-lived and limited to his Week 2 debut against the Miami Dolphins. On Friday, the team released the receiver after playing just one game in a Patriots uniform.
    Following his release, the Patriots released the following statement:
    "The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time."
    Brown confirmed the release on social media saying, "Thank you for the opportunity (Patriots) #GoWinIt"
    Brown's release comes in the aftermath of a report from Sports Illustrated's Robert Klemko that highlighted allegations of "intimidation" by Brown from an accuser. The now former Patriots receiver is also in the midst of sexual assault accusations that were brought to light following him signing with New England.
    After speaking for around 3 minutes and 30 seconds on Friday, Bill Belichick walked out of his press conference, declining to answer any questions regarding Brown and those allegations. While he didn't say anything earlier on Friday, the team has clearly decided to it was best to move on from what was a growing distraction.

    America only yap yap yaping! They Love these kind of stories especially when it's. Black person involve.
    All sexual accusation against white men is hush hush hush. I hope you read this.
    Move to africa Antonio i am tired of always the media Quick to make you guilty.
    You guys should be school up do something else the sin does not only shine in America .
    And it's too expensive in USA all the money you make are going back to white America .

    Wait, what?! Didn't this guy see the Gillette commercial?
    He's suppose to be the hero wagging his finger in the face of white guys for being abusive to women.
    Well, maybe he'll get Gillette razors in prison when he gets convicted of sexual assault.

    Two important things Antonio Brown should remember after retiring from the NFL early.
    1. He gave it his all and he should be proud.
    2. I don't like pickles on my hamburgers.

    It's interesting how people think that the Patriots deserve a pat on the back for getting rid of this moron. They knew what they were getting into when they signed the fool. Hell, when the team owner is a guy that stops off at strip mall massage parlors and gets a happy ending from sex slaves I don't think you have the right to take the moral high ground.

    It's sad becuase I dont think there will ever be a cure for CTE... I think it is just a limitation of the human body. We are not meant to take high impacts to the head. No helmet design will ever stop CTE. I don't think there will ever be a cure for CTE either, unless there is some sort of stem cell breakthrough to regenerate brain cells. I think tissue regeneration is the only hope we have to curing CTE... Or we could perhaps try to stop the formation of proteins and plaque that causes the braincells to die. It may be possible to do that medicine. I'm no doctor so I don't know what I'm talking about, but even those with PHDs don't have all the answer's.
    @ Symptoms of CTE; Antonio Brown shows all this after receiving a devastating hit to the head in 2016.
    @ What is CTE?

    This is gonna be the talk of the PreGameShows tomorrow..... JS...... With Bill Belichick walking out on yesterday’s presser, AB being accused of rape, among other allegations, him intimidating accuser#2, the Patriots had enough of AB’s saga and I believe AB will not get signed by any team..... His situation now has made it extremely hard for any team to even want to sign him...... Antonio has screwed himself BigTime......

    He had it made in Oakland. Then he showed his ass and they let him go. Then the sexual harassment allegations on top of that sealed his fate with the Patriots. I would have pulled him to the side in Oakland and told him "All this for a helmet bro!? You have $30 million guaranteed so choose a helmet and quit bitching! You need to grow up!"
