Despite being the subject of controversy, Brown was a participant in Wednesday's practice donning a temporary No. 1 jersey.
"As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly hard decision". "I have found strength in my faith, my family, and from the accounts of other survivors of sexual assault".
Taylor and Brown met in college but lost touch for years until he reportedly reached out to her via Facebook.
Rosenhaus mentioned that he and Brown both have daughters and they take any accusations of sexual assault seriously.
In a new statement, the district attorney's office said he wasn't talking about the sexual assault allegations when he mentioned that he would look into the charges. The team will cooperate with any league investigation, the team spokesperson said in the same statement.
The reason Zappala was even commenting on the case at all is because one of the alleged assaults took place in Pennsylvania.More news: Taliban seek US’ clarification on stalled peace talks

Brown practiced with the Patriots on Wednesday.
According to the lawsuit, the first incident occurred in June 2017. During her stay, Taylor says Brown exposed himself to her and grabbed and kissed her without her consent. But she agreed to work with him again after she says he apologized and agreed to provide hotel accommodations for each training trip.
"It may help Brown to argue that if this was a truthful, a fully truthful claim, that she would have alerted law enforcement".
He offers a hypothetical rebuttal from Taylor's legal team, suggesting that Brown could enjoy bias or favoritism from law enforcement because of his status as a celebrity.
Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, implied to ESPN that he and Brown were aware of the allegation prior the news being made public.
Brown was originally traded from Pittsburgh to Oakland in the offseason.
