The New England Patriots released wide receiver Antonio Brown on Friday, and now, the Patriots have to work out how much they are actually going to pay him.

The Patriots gave Brown a $9 million signing bonus on his one-year deal, but, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the bonus was not all due at the time Brown signed, and there’s usually “forfeiture language.”

Pelissero also said that one NFL executive told him the following:

“I don’t think he has any money yet so at least they can hold it while they fight about it,” said the executive.

Brown’s release comes just 11 days after New England signed him. He played one game with the Pats, catching four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown in the team’s 43-0 win over the Miami Dolphins last Sunday.

What the Patriots did not know at the time they signed Brown was that he was hit with rape allegations by his former trainer, Britney Taylor, who claimed that Brown sexually assaulted her on three different occasions, including forcible rape in 2018.

Not long after Taylor’s report surfaced, Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated published a piece mentioning a second woman that had accused Brown of sexual misconduct back in 2017.

On Thursday, the woman claimed that Brown had sent her “intimidating” text messages, per Klemko, and had screenshots of the texts that included photos of her and her children.

The messages came from the same number Brown gave her two years ago and were a part of a group text.
