Antonio Brown isn't on an NFL roster right now, but that doesn't mean he's done making headlines.

The New England Patriots cut Brown after he allegedly sent "threatening" text messages to a woman who accused him of sexual assault.

In the week that he's been out of the NFL, Brown made his presence felt on social media. Whether it's Instagram or Twitter, the All-Pro wide-out is making sure his name stays current.

He clapped back and forth with Pro Bowl safety Eric Weddle and engaged in an argument with Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Bleacher Report's NFL insider Mike Freeman revealed Brown's activity on Twitter will be used against him by NFL teams.

According to one team official, "the league will use what he's doing on Twitter as further proof he's out of control and needs to be suspended."

Brown would have to sign with an NFL team to be suspended in the first place.

He entered the 2019 season with the Oakland Raiders, but never played a down for the team. Brown signed a deal with the Patriots, but only played one game with the team before his release.

Given his recent activity on Twitter, it might be a while before the lands on another roster.
