Report: NFL investigators have not interviewed Antonio Brown

AP

NFL investigators have not interviewed Antonio Brown as part of the investigation into alleged sexual assault and rape, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.

Brown is a free agent, so, as Fowler points out, it’s unclear whether he will cooperate.

However, no team seems willing to sign Brown until the NFL’s investigation is concluded and discipline, if any, is imposed. That could leave Brown with no other option but to cooperate if he wants to resume his career sooner than later.

Two days after the Patriots released him, Brown posted on social media he was done with the NFL. He later changed his mind.

The league announced it will not place Brown on the Commissioner-Exempt list as long as the receiver remains a free agent.

Brown, meanwhile, has filed multiple grievances and appeals, seeking in excess of $61 million he believes he is owed.

  1. Probably because Goodell is afraid of having to make a decision. Most of the fans vs. the social justice jerks. He messed up with the kneeling and various man vs. girlfriend issues.
    Fire Goodell right now.

  2. More than likely Brown has not accepted the invite to the gathering. Just a guess based on his track record.

  3. One thing is certain folks and that is we can expect a Twitter explosion no matter how the grievances play out, because if he doesn’t get paid then he’s going to unleash a firestorm the likes of which the Twitter world has never seen before, but if he does get paid you can expect an explosion of the rub it in face your kind of Tweets. Either way get your popcorn ready cuz it’s gonna be epic

  4. Twitter needs to do the right thing and suspend, or preferably terminate this guy’s account. He’s not getting that $9 million from the Patriots. Kraft will take that nonsense to court for the next several years.

  5. The NFL has handled this in the cowardly fashion typical to them. They had the opportunity to put him on the Exempt List or use the existing testimony to suspend him but they chose to wash their hands of it and tap their feet and hope that team(s) would handle the situation for them. Meanwhile this sociopath roams free

    If I start a GoFundMe page to get him paid, will he just go away?

    If you can get Brown $61 million via GoFundMe then I have a job for you as my lead salesman selling these magic beans.

    So you think the NFL should be locking him up?

  8. I’m guessing he needs the grievance money to pay off the many litigants that he currently owes money to or will in the future. The NFL is waiting for civil matters to settle because so far no prosecutor has opened any case against him. As soon as the grievance clears and he realizes no windfall is coming, he’ll actively seek suitors and take whatever suspension is handed down in order to recoup some money. There’s no conspiracy, the NFL is learning to let the legal matters play out first then go after the guy. That way they either concur with the law of the land and carry on or they impose a sanction.

  9. As much as I’m fed up and tired of this guy and his antics, sadly there hasn’t been any circumstantial evidence to cause him not to play. Most of which has been hearsay from potential money grabbers. Believe me when I say I’m fed up with him, but let’s wait until ALL the facts are out to hold his feet to the fire….or ice..In this day you never really know whose telling the truth until the very end.

  10. If the Pats win the Super Bowl Brown will launch a media blizzard that he should get a ring because he was in that one game.

  11. Patriots should bring him back. Not convicted of anything,still will have to pay him, Kraft only made
    pats cut him because of Krafty’s own problems with sex. I’m a lifetime patriot fan and they would be unstoppable with AB….Free Antonio Brown!

  12. “Meanwhile this sociopath roams free”

    Hilarious. So you think putting him on the exempt list would prevent him from “roaming free”?

    Guess what? Nope it wouldn’t. What it would have done if that had been done was force the Pats to pay him instead of trying to chase the money and show he didn’t violate the contract clauses nullifying the guarantees.

  13. Why would they? He’s not IN the NFL, so why would the NFL investigate him? If they were to investigate him, that would give some of the teams interested in him solid footing to make a decision as to whether or not they want him back. But, if the NFL is quite certain they’d rather NOT have him back….well, not interviewing him would be a good way to go about keeping him out, wouldn’t it?

  14. League is dragging this out on purpose. Brown essentially ruined the start of the 100th season with negative headline after negative headline.

    If they interview him or put him on the exempt list now that creates more AB headlines. If they ignore it and just let the teams know he’ll immediately be put on that list if anyone signs him it keeps him out of the news as much as possible.

    I expect they’ll get around to interviewing him around April or May of next year, and then drag their heels another 6 months or so until another season has gone by.

  15. Maybe there is evidence they have seen that proves he is being extorted? funny how since NE cut him loose, no one wants any updates on the alleged victims suits.

    Typical frauds.

  16. So true….. he’s no longer on the Pats making them next to impossible to beat, so all the FAUX OUTRAGE from all the other teams has gone away….please don’t try to deny it….you KNOW it’s true!!!

  17. If they ask him to be interviewed is he obliged to attend? I don’t think their interview would be legally binding. Additionally, anything he said in any interview like that could be subpoena’d and used in court. My guess is they are going to have to wait until the civil trial is over before interviewing him–if he ever agrees to be interviewed anyway.

  18. I’m starting to think maybe there was a conspiracy here against the Pats. I thought that was just crazy talk at first. But once he signed with the Patriots, we had a new Robert Klemko story every day. Investigations into this. Investigations into that. Word that there was going to be many more things to come out, and those things were worse. Then the Patriots released him. The stories, and Klemko disappeared. That is one heck of a coincidence

  19. As long as he’s being quiet, the NFL will ignore him. If he starts making another ruckus, they’ll have to decide whether to put him on the exempt list or continue to ignore him, depends on the type of ruckus he creates and how bad it makes the NFL look.

  20. “If they ask him to be interviewed is he obliged to attend? I don’t think their interview would be legally binding. ”

    If he wants to ever have a chance at being signed again by an NFL team and not immediately put on the exempt list, yes, he needs to cooperate with being interviewed.

    And legally binding as far as a court no, but as far as league discipline its part of the process the CBA allows for so it would be in that respect
