The Antonio Brown saga is over. Well, at least his saga in the NFL. Following his release from the New England Patriots, Brown says he will no longer play in the league via Twitter. During his announcement, Brown took shots at Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Sunday morning.
Brown expressed his frustration after losing near $40 million over the past two months with the Patriots ($29.15 million) and Oakland Raiders ($9 million) according to ESPN.
Will not be playing in the @NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at anytime we will see if the @NFLPA hold them accountable sad they can just void guarantees anytime going on 40m 2 months will see if they pay up !

Brown called on the NFL Players Association to hold teams accountable and get him the money he is still seeking. According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that Brown will file a grievance against the Patriots and the NFLPA will represent him in it.
Brown was released by New England on Friday following new allegation of sexual misconduct by a former trainer. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, had Brown not sent intimidating group text messages to his accuser, the star wide receiver would be playing in the Patriots’ game Sunday against the Jets.
