Antonio Brown’s accuser plans to meet with the NFL next week

The NFL’s investigation regarding Antonio Brown will get started next week, when his accuser meets with the league.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Britney Taylor will meet with the NFL next week.

That’s the soonest she can do it, because she’s getting married in the interim, per Schefter.

Taylor’s lawyer has indicated that Brown’s accuser is willing to cooperate with the league. That’s a key ingredient in the question of whether and to what extent the league will discipline Brown, since the NFL has no power to compel non-employees of the league or its teams to provide information or other evidence.

The fact that Taylor won’t be interviewed until next week makes it more difficult to place Brown on the Commissioner-Exempt list. But the Commissioner has broad powers in this regard, and if the league doesn’t want Brown to play this weekend, the league can easily make it happen.

  1. yeah, let’s suspend him based upon an unproven civil allegation without so much as a conversation with the accuser because we think he’s a bad guy and the Patriots are already good enough as is.. that about sum it up?

  2. His text messages to her admit to part of the allegations. I have no reason to believe that the accuser is lying about any of the allegations.

  3. Bad egg giving the NFL a big black eye. Until these owners get together and rid the game of the bad apples we will continue to see these are the bigger story than games played and scores

  4. If all this happened in 2017 and 2018, why did she not go to the police then and why did she choose to wait until now? Something doesn’t smell right.

    While I can’t wait for the day the dynasty crumbles – and it will, it’s inevitable – I feel that the idea of putting AP on the commissioner’s exempt list is wrong. AB still gets paid, but can’t play. That is punishing the team, not the player.

    A lawyer who lets his client speak to the NFL, a conversation subject to discovery, is either a lousy lawyer or never expects to go to trial.
    If she had something to hide that might be an issue, she’s already detailed her allegations in the complaint. It’s not gonna hurt her case that she tells the NFL she got raped, because thats exactly what she’s already said. And the defense could depose her in discovery anyway.

    Doesn't admit anything he never denied they had relations he just said it was consensual

  7. Mr. Brown was not informed by his accuser that she had just been levied with a $30K IRS tax lien or that $300K of the $1.6 million so called “investment” was to be used to purchase property already owned by the accuser and her mother.”

    If this ^^^ is true, that looks bad on her and it would explain a lot.

  8. One more question.. Doesn’t “come up” mean money scheme in slang terms?

    That email sounds more like a response to give me some money or I am going to accuse you of something than it does anything else. Where is the email /text she sent him to get a response like that?
