Antonio Brown announced Sunday morning that he's done playing in the NFL following the New England Patriots' decision to release him on Friday.

The star wide receiver is not happy with how teams are able to cut ties with a player after agreeing to a deal.

"Will not be playing in the NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at anytime we will see if the (NFL Players Association) hold them accountable sad they can just void guarantees anytime going on 40m 2 months will see if they pay up !" he announced.

Here's the full tweet:

Brown reportedly signed a lucrative one-year deal with the Patriots following his release in Oakland, though it's unclear if New England will be forced to pay it.

The All-Pro wide receiver was signed by the Patriots following a tumultuous stretch with the Raiders. Brown lasted just one game in New England, getting cut on Friday.

Brown was released on Friday after he allegedly sent threatening text messages to an accuser.

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," the NFL announced.
