Seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Antonio Brown went on social media Thursday and said that he's not interested in returning to the NFL. He didn't use those words.
As news broke that the NFL is set to meet with former Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown in regards to its investigation into a civil lawsuit against him alleging sexual assault, the former All-Pro went on yet another social media tirade on Thursday.
Brown, who has not played in the NFL and has remained an unsigned free agent since he was released by the Patriots Sept. 20, proclaimed with vulgarity on Twitter that he’ll “never play” in the league again.
"Imagine conforming to a system, giving it 100 percent, [just] to see them treat me like this unfairly," Brown tweeted Thursday. "Making money off my sweat and blood...F--- the NFL. I'll never play in that s---. [They] treat black people the worst! Clear my name, and go f--- yourself."
But just like the last time Brown declared he was done with the NFL, he had a change of heart. Just a few hours later, Brown sent out a tweet with a different tune.
"I'm just very frustrated right now with the false allegations and slander to my name," he said. "I love football and I miss it. I just want to play and I'm very emotional about that. I'm determined to make my way back to the NFL asap."
Despite the allegations and controversy surrounding Brown, there does appear to be some interest around the league.
Just last weekend, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Seattle Seahawks did "due diligence" on Brown, with NFL MVP candidate Russell Wilson high on the idea of signing the free-agent wideout.
