“The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown,” the team said in a statement. “We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time.” NYPost
Antonio Brown isn’t out of the Patriots’ problems yet, as the free agent receiver will be filing a grievance against the Patriots to collect close to $10 million, according to ESPN.
Brown’s deal with the Patriots called for him to make $10 million fully guaranteed this season – a $9 million signing bonus and $1 million salary. Brown collected $158,333 in his two weeks with the Patriots – two game checks and one roster bonus – but the Patriots released Brown three days before paying him $5 million of his signing bonus. The other $4 million was due on Jan. 15. Brown will also fight for the remaining $875,000 of his base salary.
