AB says he is done with the NFL, rips Robert Kraft, Ben Roethlisberger in now deleted Twitter rant.
Antonio Brown let loose a rant on social media on Sunday, saying he won't be playing in the NFL until the league changes its contract structure concerning guaranteed money.
Brown was released by the New England Patriots this week after several disturbing allegations were detailed by SI.com. Two weeks before signing with the Patriots, Brown was released by the Oakland Raiders who voided more than $30 million in guaranteed money.
Brown had four catches for 56 yards and one touchdown in his one game with the Patriots last Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN that there were several teams interested in the wide receiver, and wanted "information regarding his legal situation and the NFL investigation," before possibly signing him.
"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!" Brown said on Twitter.
Brown was accused by a former trainer of sexual assault after the allegations surfaced in a civil lawsuit two weeks.
The accuser, Britney Taylor, met with the NFL earlier this week.
Then the seven–time Pro Bowler was accused of sending "intimidating" text messages to an artist hired to paint a mural of Brown. The unnamed woman said she rebuffed his sexual advances.
ESPN reports that if Brown hadn't sent those messages to the second woman he would be playing in this week's game against the New York Jets.
When Brown signed with the Patriots, he was guaranteed $9 million of a reported $15 million deal, in which the first $5 million payment is due on Monday. The rest would be due Jan. 15.
Brown also mentioned Patriots owner Robert Kraft, and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in his now deleted tweets. Kraft was charged with two misdemeanor counts of first-degree solicitation for a massage parlor visit in January and has yet to be punished by the NFL.
Roethlisberger was suspended for six games in 2010 for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy after being accused of sexual assault.
