Once again Antonio Brown has been released this season. His stint with the New England Patriots has ended after just 11 days.

Brown sent out a series of cryptic Instagram posts this afternoon prior to the team announcing that they've cut him.

New England signed Brown after he was released by the Oakland Raiders. He played in one game for the Patriots, hauling in four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown.

Even though New England tried to help Brown, the All-Pro wideout continues to find himself in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

The Patriots released a statement, saying "The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time."

Clearly, the drama involving Brown outweighs the talent that he has.

Sports Illustrated reporter Robert Klemko reported earlier this week that Brown sent "threatening message" to a woman that accused him of sexual assault.

Considering all the drama that has followed Brown the past few months, it's hard to envision another team signing him in the near future.

It's also possible that the NFL places him on the commissioner's exempt list until it sorts out his current legal issues.
