Antonio Brown: I’m done playing in the NFL

Antonio Brown is done with the NFL.

The wide receiver, who was released by the New England Patriots on Friday amid accusations of sexual assault, says he won’t be returning to the league.

“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 !” Brown wrote on Twitter Sunday morning.

Brown had his roughly $30 million in guaranteed money with the Oakland Raiders voided when he was fined for conduct detrimental to the team. Hours after being released by the Raiders, he signed with the Patriots on a one-year deal with a $9 million signing bonus and a $1 million guaranteed base salary.

Per Brown’s contract, he was due $5 million of the signing bonus on Monday and the remaining $4 million on Jan. 15. Reports indicated the Patriots will try to get out of paying the bonus.

Brown, 31, was accused of raping Britney Taylor in a civil lawsuit. A second accuser came forward to Sports Illustrated, which reported that Brown sent intimidating text messages to the second accuser.
