Ex-Patriots WR Deion Branch claims Antonio Brown won’t be distraction for New England
All offseason, Antonio Brown has made headlines for his poor behavior. From his time in Pittsburgh to his time in Oakland, he’s stayed in the headlines for his actions. And now that he’s under investigation with a sexual assault allegation against him now that he’s with New England.
Many in the Patriots organization believe that this won’t affect them too much as far as off-the-field issues. They’re a very grounded and focus team that’s always prepared for anything of this nature.
One person who spoke on this issue is former Patriots wideout Deion Branch who’s familiar with the organization and how they run things as he stated in a recent TMZ interview.
“Everything starts with Bill. It starts with your leader on the team. Coach Belichick, out of all the years he’s been coaching and been a part of numerous different organizations, trust me, this ain’t the first time something like this has came up with some of his players. He will do what’s best for the organization, that we all know.”
Running back Brandon Bolden also spoke to the media on the situation.
“Legal situation don’t make it into the locker room. It’s his situation. We’ll let him handle it. Our main focus is Miami right now and getting him caught up as fast as possible. We’ll let him take care of his legal situation and we’ll take care of football.”
Because the issue is only put in as a civil lawsuit Antonio Brown is allowed to practice and play.
