FOXBORO (CBS) – Antonio Brown, released by the New England Patriots on Friday, blasted Robert Kraft and NFL owners on Sunday and said he will “not be playing the NFL anymore.”
Brown was released amid accusations of sexual assault. He also reportedly sent text messages to a woman who accused him of sexual misconduct that she believed were intimidating.
On Sunday, Brown tweeted he will not be playing in the NFL anymore because “these owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at any time.”
