UPDATE 11/7, 5:09 p.m. ET: Antonio Brown took to Twitter once again. This time around he's saying that he's "determined to make my way back to the NFL asap."
I'm just very frustrated right now with the false allegations and slander to my name. 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— AB (@AB84) November 7, 2019

Antonio Brown woke up ready to burn every possible bridge. The wide receiver who was cut by the Patriots amid allegations of sexual assault tweeted that he would never play in the NFL again. In an incendiary post, he accused the league of treating black players unfairly and exploiting his labor.
"Imagine conforming to a system giving it a 100 percent to see them treat me like this is unfairly ! Making money off my sweat and blood Fuck the NFL." he wrote. "I’ll never play in that shit treat black people the worse! Clear my name and go fuck your self."
The tweet comes shortly after ESPN reported that Brown was scheduled to meet with league officials. Brown is under investigation by the league due to allegations of sexual assault from his former personal trainer Britney Taylor, which would run afoul of the NFL's personal conduct policy. Brown had not yet been interviewed by NFL investigators. ESPN shares that several teams are interested in Brown, but awaiting the results of the league's inquiry.
Brown has filed a $40 million grievance against his former teams: the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots. If he's to be taken at his word, it looks like those will be the last teams he ever plays for.
