The agent for now-former New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown has provided an update on his client's status moving forward in the NFL.
Brown, who was released by the Patriots following alleged threatening text messages to an accuser, has reportedly been in contact with multiple NFL teams.
However, it's unlikely that Brown is going to be signed until his legal situation is resolved.
"Antonio Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus said he already has had communication 'with a few teams that are interested' in his client and that 'want information regarding his legal situation and the NFL investigation,'" Schefter tweeted.
Brown could potentially land on the exempt list once/if he's signed by another team.
The NFL released a statement on Brown on Friday night.
“Antonio Brown was released today by the New England Patriots and is currently an unrestricted free agent. Our office is presently investigating multiple allegations, some of which are the subject of pending litigation. We have as yet made no findings regarding these issues. The investigation is ongoing and will be pursued vigorously and expeditiously. As long as Mr. Brown is a free agent, placement on the Commissioners Exempt list is not appropriate. If he is signed by a club, such placement may become appropriate at any time depending on the status of the investigation. Upon the conclusion of the investigation, he may also be subject to discipline if the investigation finds that he has violated the law or the league policies.”
At this point, it would be surprising if Brown lands on another NFL roster anytime soon.
