A ‘frustrated’ Antonio Brown recants Twitter rant, still ‘determined’ to play in NFL

first_imgA few days after his release from the Patriots, Brown said he was no longer going to play in the NFL. Will not be playing in the @NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at anytime we will see if the @NFLPA hold them accountable sad they can just void guarantees anytime going on 40m 2 months will see if they pay up !— AB (@AB84) September 22, 2019But reports came out afterwards saying the receiver was still interested in playing. And his social media activity indicated the same.In September, Brown was accused of exploitation, sexual assault and rape. Another woman spoke with Sports Illustrated and accused Brown of sexual misconduct. Antonio Brown’s on-again, off-again commitment to resuming his NFL career once again played out on social media. The free-agent receiver posted on Twitter and Instagram Thursday (and later deleted) he’s no longer going to play in the league, then recanted his statements in a later tweet. This came hours after an ESPN report saying Brown was scheduled to meet with league officials next week over accusations of sexually assaulting multiple women. “Imagine conforming to a system giving it a 100%  to see them treat me like this is unfairly [sic]! Making money off my sweat and blood. F— the [NFL]. I’ll never play in that s—. Treat black people the worse [sic]! Clear my name and go f— your self,” Brown said on Twitter.MORE: What to know about the allegations against Antonio BrownHours after sending an expletive tweet about never playing in the NFL again, Antonio Brown has changed his mind.📰: https://t.co/IKwer6pVEF pic.twitter.com/gv7PNzsR2v— Sporting News (@sportingnews) November 8, 2019He echoed those thoughts on Instagram saying in part, “I’m going down another path.”Antonio Brown says he is “done with” the NFL. pic.twitter.com/ujNnOEkLFq— Sporting News (@sportingnews) November 7, 2019It took only a few hours for Brown to walk back those comments with another tweet, saying, “I’m determined to make my way back to the NFL.”I’m just very frustrated right now with the false allegations and slander to my name.
