Report: Antonio Brown Meeting With NFL Next Week to Address Investigation


Antonio Brown is expected to meet with NFL officials on Thursday, Nov. 14, as the league continues its investigation into the former Steelers, Raiders and Patriots receiver, ESPN’s Josina Anderson reports

The league is investigating allegations of sexual misconduct brought against Brown by two women. 

The first woman, Brown’s former trainer, filed a federal lawsuit on Sept. 10 alleging the receiver raped her

A second woman, hired by Brown to create artwork for his Pittsburgh home, came forward in an article published Sept. 16 by Sports Illustrated accusing Brown of sexually inappropriate behavior. Brown, as reported in a subsequent Sports Illustrated story, sent the second woman threatening text messages after the initial story was published. 

Brown was released by the Patriots on Sept. 20, after the threats came to light. 

The NFL is investigating the allegations under its personal conduct policy. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported in October that Brown hoped to have the investigation closed before signing with another team. The Seahawks considered signing Brown last week before claiming Josh Gordon on waivers, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported.

Brown lashed out at the NFL in a tweet and an Instagram post shortly after Anderson broke the news of his impending meeting. 

In a since-deleted Instagram post he said “I’m going down another path no more making money off my blood and sweat.”
