NFL news: Antonio Brown goes on another rant on social media
Just when it looked like Antonio Brown was headed in the right direction, he has dug himself another hole. Brown took to Twitter to post his latest social media rant on Wednesday, claiming that the NFL is more lenient with Caucasian players in since-deleted tweets.

Curt Popejoy of Steelers Wire has all the screenshots of the tweets from Brown.
This comes not long after Brown issued an apology, which many felt was a significant step in the wide receiver eventually making his way back to the NFL. Brown is not currently with a team and last appeared in an NFL game back in Week 2 when he was a member of the New England Patriots.
The 31-year-old was initially supposed to play for the Oakland Raiders in 2019, but a string of incidents in training camp ultimately led to Brown requesting his release.
The Raiders granted his wish, cutting him just before the season began. Brown then signed with the Patriots, but what New England did not know at the time of his acquisition was that the wideout had been hit with rape allegations.
Brown then sent threatening text messages to a different woman who accused him of sexual misconduct, which resulted in the Pats releasing him.
Since then, the seven-time Pro Bowler has unleashed multiple tirades on social media.
Brown is unquestionably one of the most talented receivers to ever play the game and can certainly help another team on the field, but his off-the-field behavior is making it more and more difficult for him to get back into the league.
