Antonio Brown to meet with National Football League next week; teams remain interested

The meeting is now scheduled to take place next Thursday (November 14).

The profanity laced tweet was just a week before Brown was supposedly scheduled to meet with the league to discuss his side of the story regarding the two sexual assault allegations that were levied against Brown this summer.

That tweet was the start of a now-deleted tirade in which he called out Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, and former National Football League player and current commentator Shannon Sharpe over incidents of alleged sexual assault or improprieties in their past.

He still hasn't met with the NFL over the allegations, but ESPN reported that the former receiver was going to meet with the league in person next week.

Last week, reports came out that the Seahawks were interested in signing Brown but instead picked up Josh Gordon after he was released by the Patriots off injured reserve.

"Imagine conforming to a system giving it a 100 percent to see them treat me like this unfairly!" "I'll never play in that. treat black people the worse!" Clear my name and go f*** your self (sic)'.

The 31-year-old wide receiver seemed to be on track to be a contributor for the New England Patriots in 2019.

Brown protested the league's new helmet rule and was fined $40,000 by the Raiders for unexcused absence of practice. They did release him on September 20, several days after Sports Illustrated published intimidating text messages Brown had allegedly sent to the second woman.

He was cut in Oakland after several incidents, one of which involved him confronting general manager Mike Mayock about personal fines for missed practices.

A few days after his release from the Patriots, Brown said he was no longer going to play in the NFL.

Brown has vehemently denied the allegations.
