It should come as no surprise, but Antonio Brown hasn't exactly been looking forward to meeting the Patriots media the past few weeks. Nevertheless, he finally spoke to reporters today - he just didn't have a lot to say.

Brown spoke to the media today, marking his first media interview since joining the Patriots in Week 1 of the season. Reporters were allowed to ask four questions, and Brown's responses were brief.

But nearly all of the questions were about the ongoing controversy of his game status amidst sexual assault allegations. He deflected all of those questions by stating how grateful he is to play for the Patriots.

In total, the interview lasted a grant total of one minute.

Brown made his debut for the Patriots this past weekend, easily returning to form against the hapless Miami Dolphins. He finished his first game for New England with four receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown.

But Brown has been dogged by recent allegations of sexual assault from his former trainer. Though it seems unlikely that he will face criminal charges, the NFL is still engaged in their own investigation.

Brown may find success on the field, but that's not what people are going to want to talk to him about anytime soon.
