“Will not be playing in the NFL anymore,” the wide receiver said on Twitter on Sunday, suggesting that the NFL’s labor union, the NFL Players Association (NFLPA), may take action over his abrupt removal.
“These owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at anytime (sic) we will see if the NFLPA hold them accountable,” he added.
A representative with the NFLPA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Brown’s removal from the team follows his former trainer Britney Taylor accusing him of sexual assaulting and raping her in a lawsuit filed in Florida earlier this month.
Taylor said Brown exposed himself and forcibly kissed her during a training session in June 2017. In another incident that month, she said he masturbated behind her and ejaculated onto her back. She also alleges that he forced her onto a bed and raped her in May 2018.
An attorney for Brown has denied the allegations and said that Brown and Taylor had a “consensual personal relationship.”
Brown’s removal came less than two weeks after he agreed to a one-year contract with the Patriots. He previously played for the Pittsburgh Steelers for several years.
