NFL GMs ‘laughed’ at being interested in ex-Patriots WR Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown, Patriots

The New England Patriots released Antonio Brown on Friday, marking the second time he has been released in two weeks. The Oakland Raiders also cut him just before the season started.

So, now that the Patriots have decided to part with the wide receiver, are there are any other NFL teams that would be interested?

It remains to be seen, but Pete Prisco of CBS Sports said that he texted a couple of general managers when Brown was released by the Raiders. They “laughed” when asked if they had any interest in signing him.

Brown played one game with New England, catching four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown during the Pats’ 43-0 win over the Miami Dolphins last Sunday.

What the Pats did not know when they signed Brown was that he had been hit with rape allegations by his former trainer, Britney Taylor.

Taylor claimed that Brown sexually assaulted her on three separate occasions, including forcible rape in 2018.

Then, shortly after Taylor’s report surfaced, Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated published an article which mentioned another woman that accused Brown of sexual misconduct in 2017.

On Thursday, the woman received threatening text messages from Brown, per Klemko, and provided screenshots of the texts, which 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 chat.

Brown spent the first nine years of his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, making seven Pro Bowls.
