An­to­nio Brown says he’s done with the NFL — again

Lodi News-Sentinel - - SPORTS - — Chuck Schilken, Los An­ge­les Times

An­to­nio Brown can’t seem to make up his mind whether or not he wants to play in the NFL.

Ever since he was re­leased by the New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots on Sept. 20, the cur­rently un­em­ployed re­ceiver has wa­vered in his pub­lic state­ments be­tween declar­ing him­self out of the league for­ever and lob­by­ing for an­other chance.

He went with the former ap­proach Thurs­day on so­cial me­dia.

“I’m go­ing down an­other path no more mak­ing money off my blood and sweat!” Brown wrote in an ex­ple­tive-filled In­sta­gram post. “No more con­trol of my name and body ... I am done with it!”

The post also fea­tured a photo of Brown wear­ing a shirt with the NFL logo on it.

The Pa­tri­ots were the third team to part ways with Brown since March. Dur­ing his two weeks in New Eng­land, the seven-time Pro Bowler played one game and faced mul­ti­ple al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual mis­con­duct, all of which he has de­nied.

Also on Thurs­day, mul­ti­ple me­dia out­lets re­ported the league’s in­ten­tion to meet with Brown next week in re­gard to its in­ves­ti­ga­tion into those al­le­ga­tions. His so­cial me­dia out­burst may have had some­thing to do with that devel­op­ment.

“Imag­ine con­form­ing to a sys­tem giv­ing it a 100% to see them treat me like this,” Brown wrote in a pro­fane tweet. “I’ll never play in that ... treat black peo­ple the worse!”

He added: “Clear my name and go ... your­self.”
