So far, the 2019 NFL campaign has been all about one man: Antonio Brown. Brown has only played in one game, but his name has been a mainstay on both sports talk and national news programs.
The reasons for Brown’s headline dominance are numerous and widely varying. He’s generated buzz for football-specific reasons—his trade demand from Pittsburgh, his dramatic falling out with Oakland, his all-too-predictable resurrection with New England. But he’s also been in the news for a host of very serious off-the-field problems that have led to his character being called into question.
With Brown gearing up for the Patriots’ Week 3 matchup with the Jets, his future with the team—and in the NFL—is uncertain. He currently faces litigation in Florida for three alleged instances of sexual assault. Here is everything you need to know about the ongoing case and his ongoing legal issues.
