League sources told ESPN and NFL Media earlier Thursday that Brown will meet with the league sometime next week regarding civil allegations of sexually assaulting multiple women. According to ESPN, Brown is “eager” to offer his story in what could be the first of many meetings between the sides.
A few hours later, Brown unleashed a profanity-laced rant on social media to display his frustration with the NFL. In the since-deleted post, he accused the league of treating black players poorly.
“Imagine conforming to a system giving it a 100 percent to see them treat me like this is unfairly!” Brown wrote on Twitter. “Making money off my sweat and blood [expletive] the @NFL I’ll never play in that [expletive] treat black people the worse! Clear my name and go [expletive] your self.”
Brown had a similar message in a since-deleted post on Instagram, writing that he is “going down another path.” Later Thursday afternoon, he backtracked from his previous posts and said he was “very frustrated” and “determined” to return to the NFL.
The league has yet to interview Brown concerning the allegations against him. The wideout is being investigated by the NFL under its personal conduct policy after his former trainer, Britney Taylor, accused him of sexually assaulting her on multiple occasions.
Brown has officially been served lawsuit papers from Taylor, according to ESPN. Brown also was accused of sexual misconduct at his home by an unnamed artist who was working for him in 2017.
Brown has played in only one game this season, which came in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins. The Oakland Raiders released him before the season, and the Patriots waived him before Week 3 after it was made known that he sent threatening text messages to the artist who accused him of sexual misconduct.
