Over the weekend, former New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown took to social media to say he was done playing football.
However, just a few days later, his agent says that’s not true.
Drew Rosenhaus, speaking on Warren Sapp’s “99 Problems” podcast, said “I believe that Antonio wants to continue his career in the NFL.”
It’s a direct conflict to what Brown said about his future in the league. Despite Brown’s reluctance to play and recent accusations of sexual assault, Rosenhaus said several NFL teams have expressed interest in the star wide-out.
“I have had discussions with a few teams that are very interested in him and want to know about his future and what’s going on with the NFL. Hopefully when that is all resolved, Antonio will be able to continue his Hall of Fame career.
It’s my hope, it’s Antonio’s hope, that he’ll be back playing as soon as possible.”
New England released Brown after he allegedly sent “threatening” text messages to his accuser.
After the move, Brown announced he enrolled in online classes at Central Michigan – where he played a decade ago.
Brown’s tumultuous 2019 season appears to be over. However, Rosenhaus suggested a return to the field is still in the cards.
We’ll have to wait and see if that is the case.
