Report: Antonio Brown's Meeting With NFL Lasted Eight Hours

Publish date:

Antonio Brown's meeting with the NFL on Thursday to address sexual assault allegations against him lasted about eight hours, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson, and there could be follow-ups before a decision is made about his future with the league.

The NFL had three representatives at the interview, which took place in Florida. Brown has denied the allegations, but was reportedly happy with how the meeting went. 

Brown was released by the Patriots on Sept. 20 after the NFL launched an investigation into his alleged harassment and intimidation of a woman who accused him of sexual misconduct.

On Sept. 16, Sports Illustrated revealed accusations ranging from a previously untold account of sexual misconduct, a charity auction theft, multiple domestic incidents and a long list of unpaid debts.

The four-time All-Pro was additionally accused on Sept. 10 of raping his former trainer Britney Taylor in May 2018. Taylor alleges the wide receiver sexually harassed her on three occasions, including the alleged rape last year.

Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN's Adam Schefter that there are “a few teams that are very interested in signing Antonio once this process is over,” but NFL teams appear to be waiting for the league’s findings before bringing in the seven-time Pro Bowler. 

ESPN reported earlier this week that barring a significant change of events, the free agent wideout is not expected to play again this season.
