Antonio Brown’s agent seems to have reneged on the wide receivers’ comments over the weekend, in which he claimed that he was “finished with the NFL.”
Drew Rosenhaus, who represents Brown, appeared on Warren Sapp‘s ’99 Problems’ podcast and shared that he’s been in talks with multiple teams, “I have had discussions with a few teams that are very interested in him and want to know about his future and what’s going on with the NFL.” Rosenhaus continued, “Hopefully, when that is all resolved, Antonio will be able to continue his Hall of Fame career.”
As you may recall, AB was let go from the New England Patriots after the team caught wind of the allegedly threatening text messages he sent to the second woman that accused him of sexual misconduct. This reportedly prompted the NFL to launch an investigation into her claims. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news.
Shortly after Brown was let go, he tweeted up a storm claiming that he would not be returning to the NFL anymore. He also called out the league for basically being hypocritical, by referencing the prostitution-related charges faced by Patriots owner Robert Kraft in Florida and mentioning Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who was once facing rape and sexual assault accusations from two different women.
After announcing that he was no longer going to play in the NFL, AB also said that he is going back to school at his alma mater, University of Central Michigan, but Rosenhaus says it doesn’t mean that football is out the window. He said, “I know there’s been a lot of speculation as to whether or not that means he’s not going to proceed with the NFL but taking online college courses to get your degree or your post-graduate degree is something that I would recommend to every client. I wouldn’t read too much into that.”
