On Tuesday morning, former New England Patriots star wide receiver Antonio Brown made headlines for what he posted on social media.
Instead of inciting controversy, his comments had the opposite effect. Brown apologized to Patriots owner Robert Kraft and the organization for the negative news he brought during his one-week stint with the team.
“Mr.Kraft I apologize sincerely to you and your organization! All I wanted to be was an asset to the organization; sorry for the bad media and the drama! Thank you sincerely, AB,” Brown wrote.
His comments sparked a conversation regarding when he could return to the league. According to a report from Pro Football Talk, Brown expects to know his fate “very soon.”
From the report:
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Brown remains hopeful that a decision will come “very soon.” There’s a sense of optimism from Brown’s perspective that he will be cleared to return to the NFL before the 2019 regular season ends.
Brown was released by the Oakland Raiders and then the Patriots after allegations of sexual assault surfaced.
He reportedly met with the NFL last week to present his side of the story.
Will Brown return to the league this season? Stay tuned for the latest.
