Antonio Brown says 'f--- the NFL' in new social media tirade
Antonio Brown is done with the NFL... again.
Just hours after ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported that the former New England Patriots wide receiver would be meeting with the NFL next week, he unleashed a social media tirade directed at the NFL.

Brown published similar posts to both Twitter and Instagram, stating that he thinks that the NFL has treated him unfairly and that he’s “done with it.” He also demanded that the NFL clear his name in its ongoing investigation into sexual assault allegations made against him by two different women.
This is far from the first time Brown has quit the NFL. Back in August, when he was embroiled in the now-famous helmet saga with the Oakland Raiders and the NFL, he reportedly told the team that if he couldn’t play with the non-certified helmet that he preferred, he’d quit football entirely. That, of course, didn’t turn out to be true. He signed with the New England Patriots shortly after the Raiders released him.
About six weeks later, just a few days after the Patriots had released him over intimidating text messages he’d sent to the second woman who had accused him of sexual assault, Brown tweeted that he “will not be playing in the NFL anymore.”
That tweet was the start of a now-deleted tirade in which he called out Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, and former NFL player and current commentator Shannon Sharpe over incidents of alleged sexual assault or improprieties in their past.
Since Brown hasn’t actually played football since either of his “I quit” tweets, we have no idea if he really means it. We’ll just have to wait until the NFL completes its investigation to see if AB is truly done with football, or if this is just another false alarm.
