Antonio Brown Trouble Still Pending With NFL

April 22nd, 2021

It seems it might take more than a fat check stroked to his rape accuser in order to clear the record of furniture-tossing, bicycle-hurling Antonio Brown.

NFL Network shared this week that Brown’s civil rape lawsuit is ending as most do — with an agreement between the two parties before landing in court.

But NBC Sports and guru/insider Mike Florio appears to have asked the the NFL the money question. Has the NFL cleared Brown of all wrong-doing under the league conduct policy?

Florio got a “nope” response.

The resolution of a civil sexual assault and rape lawsuit against free-agent receiver Antonio Brown doesn’t automatically resolve his lingering issues with the NFL. Asked what a Brown settlement of the lawsuit brought in September 2019 by Britney Taylor means for the still-pending Personal Conduct Policy investigation, a league spokesperson told PFT, “The matter remains under review.”

Bucs fans know very well about how the NFL has its own justice system. So Joe is not surprised that the NFL is giving Brown’s mess a lot of scrutiny, like it’s, say, a famous drive-thru groping.

Regardless, Joe is not concerned. The Bucs are sure to get a definitive answer from the NFL on Brown before opening day. Plenty of time to sign Brown if they haven’t by then.

Remember, Brown didn’t join the team until October last season, and it all worked out fine.

    At AB’s age and point in his career The NFL could easily make him an example…

  2. Mitch Says:

    I wonder if that means 3-6 game suspension is incoming.

  3. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Leave AB alone….it was simply a “hassle”…..

  4. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    Let him get suspended for 6 games. Drives his price down. Nice, healthy cheap receiver arriving week 7. Gives us 6 weeks to see what Miller/Johnson can do as a starter.

  5. Medicated Pete Says:

    First time ever that a suspension would be great for all parties involved lolololo let him in the building during the bye week

  6. Hodad Says:

    Move on. Seems the Bucs are, good.

  7. Casual Observer Says:

    In the NFL draft this year their eight wide receivers the run a 4.39 or better. Their are two of them that run 4.26 and 4.29. So the Bucs have a week or so to decide to pick one. If they do AB is history if they don’t he will be back on the roster.

  10. 813bucboi Says:

    AB will sign with the BUCS and he may have to sit a game or 2….perfectly fine…

    this will all be over no later than the end of draft….

    GO BUCS!!!!

    I totally forgot about the NFL needing to get their pound of flesh. How heavy will the hand be this time, since he got 8 games for the moving company issue?

  12. Oneilbuc Says:

    Man look we have Brady remember that’s all the bucs need . I’m tired of the AB talk let him walk . We got enough wr so just move on .

  13. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    Just need to move on with other options.


    He hasn’t been punished enough. Now they’re holding a misconduct over his head? Seriously NFL players don’t go off from time to time? No drugs and guns involved, he paid the piper let him live his life.

  15. lambeau Says:

    People sound pretty casual about a rape accusation.
    It’s possible, however, that part of the settlement was her declining to talk to NFL.

  16. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Rape is a serious thing. To most people.

  17. Jmarkbuc Says:

    O’Neill what we have is 22 SB starters returning. But yeah AB can go. We agree on that.

    Joe how is my previous comment, different than Lambeau’s?
