(Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - The woman accusing Antonio Brown of rape will reportedly meet with the NFL next week and there is a chance he could be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list.
The league has said they will be investigating the incident.
The Washington Post reports the NFL could place Brown on the commissioner’s exempt list, which would mean he is ineligible to play until taken off the list. He would still be paid.
The NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy States:
Late Tuesday the Patriots released a statement:
"We are aware of the civil lawsuit that was filed earlier today against Antonio Brown, as well as the response by Antonio's representatives," the Patriots said in a statement late Tuesday night. "We take these allegations very seriously. Under no circumstance does this organization condone sexual violence or assault. The league has informed us that they will be investigating. We will have no further comment while the investigation takes place."
The Steelers also released a statement denying any knowledge of the alleged incidents.
“The Steelers organization did not have any knowledge of the alleged incidents involving Antonio Brown prior to yesterday. If requested, the Steelers organization will cooperate in any related investigation.”
