We are Week 3 into the regular season, and the Antonio Brown drama saga is STILL not done yet.
Within a couple days after the New England Patriots released the popular and polarizing wide receiver, Brown took it to Twitter to say a couple things on his mind.
And those were that he’s done playing in the NFL and giving some subtle shots at Patriots owner Robert Kraft and former teammate, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Will not be playing in the @NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at anytime we will see if the @NFLPA hold them accountable sad they can just void guarantees anytime going on 40m 2 months will see if they pay up !— AB (@AB84) September 22, 2019
The tweet above is also referencing to the contract that he got from the Oakland Raiders and how they voided the guaranteed money that was in it.
Brown also threw some shade at Fox Sports analyst Shannon Sharpe, who’s been critical about him and his offseason.

ESPN’s Chris Mortenson has reported that Brown said in the tweet that he wants the NFLPA for teams to be ‘held accountable’ and have the player receive the money he has been seeking.
He will also file a grievance against the Patriots and have the players’ association represent him.
This is also a crucial part of a timeline of a whirlwind of events that happened this offseason.
It’s also part of recent events that occurred for Brown as he’s currently in a lawsuit with former trainer Britney Taylor, who’s accusing him of sexual assault. He has denied any wrongdoing, and was seen on video with the accuser in bed in underwear.
Hopefully the de facto retirement tweet is a signal that the Brown saga is over. Just saying.
