Antonio Brown reunion with New England Patriots appears unlikely


"I don't think those decisions honestly are up to me", he said.

"Two sources with knowledge of the Patriots thinking scoffed at the idea Antonio Brown would rejoin the Patriots this season", Curran wrote.

Tom Brady has had enough of the Antonio Brown questions. "I know there's frustration".

Antonio Brown blames his rape accuser for recent financial losses in a countersuit made public on Wednesday.

While Patriots fans may - or may not - be holding out for hope that New England does bring in the dynamic receiver, the latest report from Jeff Howe of The Athletic indicates that the Patriots are not interested in a reunion with their former receiver. "They are not up to me when we cut players or sign players".

Earlier this week, former Patriot Christian Fauria said New England has "kicked the tires" on Brown. "Thank you sincerely AB", he captioned on Instagram and Twitter. There have also been rumblings that Brown is optimistic the NFL may clear him before the end of the season after he stated his case in a meeting with the league last week.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick was asked Wednesday if he's keeping tabs on the league's investigation into Brown, who is now a free agent and is not facing league discipline. But while Brown's camp is apparently optimistic about the receiver's future this season, there are clues suggesting otherwise.

And while it was subsequently reported Rosenhaus couldn't break a confidentiality agreement Brown supposedly had in place, the fact that the Patriots entered into the Brown experience not knowing at all that that bombshell was waiting to explode makes them unwilling to go down the same road again. For one, he's caused a number of headaches in 2019.

Antonio Brown is countersuing the woman who accused him of raping her in a civil lawsuit filed in September, ESPN reports.

Even if Brown were to be signed on a team this year, he'd likely be placed on the commissioner's exempt list, meaning he wouldn't be allowed to play until he's off that list.
