New England Patriots Will Not Be Re-Signing Antonio Brown

Just days after the Patriots signed Brown, he faced allegations of sexual assault and rape in a civil suit.

Britney Taylor sued Brown earlier this year in Florida, according to the New York Times, and ESPN says Brown's countersuit, which was filed recently, accuses Taylor of "defamation and interference with his National Football League contracts and endorsements".

Brown alleges in his suit that Taylor had attempted to secure from him a $1.65 million investment for her gymnastic business after he signed a lucrative $72 million with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Brown spent 11 days with the Patriots, and he's now under investigation after sexual misconduct allegations surfaced during his short yet eventful stint in New England.

Brown's tenure in New England was a short one as he appeared in just one game with the team before he was released following sexual misconduct allegations from a second accuser.

"In summary, after enduring a failed business endeavor and also failing to gain the relationship status she desired with Brown, Taylor began a vicious campaign of lies and deceit targeting Brown both personally and professionally".

NBC Sports Boston's Tom E. Curran reported that the Patriots have no interest in bringing Brown back.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick was asked Wednesday if he's keeping tabs on the league's investigation into Brown, who is now a free agent and is not facing league discipline.

Who would you like to see sign Brown to a contract?

Taylor's attorney, David Haas, said his client will "not be bullied".

'In the past, Defendant Brown has used intimidation to avoid responsibility for his actions. Although it's not clear what's making him miserable - it could be his own play, the Patriots lack of a big play wide receiver, the team's struggling offensive line or maybe even his contract situation or all of these things - something is clearly bothering the 42-year-old.

'However, Ms. Taylor will not be bullied and remains steadfast in holding Defendant Brown accountable'.
