The Antonio Brown-New England Patriots story has taken yet another turn.
After thanking the Patriots, then taking aim at Robert Kraft on Twitter, then asking for another chance from the team, the star receiver took to Twitter and Instagram again on Tuesday to issue an apology to Kraft and the organization. The Tweet was released amid three different sexual assault and rape allegations against Brown.
The NFL is currently investigating Brown’s case. The Patriots released Brown just 11 days after signing him to a one-year contract. Brown recorded four catches for 56 yards and a touchdown in his lone game against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.
Browns’ apology comes just weeks after he stated on social media that he’ll never play in the NFL again. The 31-year-old met with the NFL on November 15th and reportedly denied the allegations against him.
The Patriots’ offence has struggled in recent weeks, so perhaps this was a friendly reminder that Brown is willing to play for the team again. Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Brown is not expected to play again this season. Time will tell how things play out.
