Well, welcome back, everyone to the sports dish.
Here in sportscaster, we have news breaking a wooden this past hour.
This is huge news inside the NFL regarding Antonio Brown of the New England Patriots here.
Huge news went in the past hours around 4:10 p.
Eastern time, where this new started to break in.
A news has be been this So this is the statement from a Patriot spokesperson that I'm going to read and just a brief moment.
But on the Tuttle here I have breaking news.
Antonio Brown has been released indeed by the New England Patriots.
So we're gonna go over here.
What? This statement is from a Patriot spokesperson, and I'll quote it here and the quotes from the Patriots spokesperson that says the New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown.
We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move on in a different direction at this time.
So no more time when Antonio Brown here with the Patriots, Most likely, I don't think that Antonio Brown will ever play in the NFL for another team this season.
This is his third team and basically like less than 10 months year with Antonio Brown from the Steelers in March over to the Oakland Raiders.
And he last 11 days here in Fox Borough.
And that is it for Antonio Brown.
A is just a ridiculous turn of events the past week or so when Antonio Brown, with the allegations dropping each and every bombshell against them.
The 1st 1 was just over a week ago with the first sexual allegations that he sexually assaulted, Ah, one of his accusers, and now he actually raped her what she took to the NFL on Monday and then more bombshells when Antonio Brown were breaking throughout the course of this week.
One of them was a Sports Illustrated article that was just published throughout the past.
Ah, a couple hours here, the Sports Illustrated article that was released.
But Antonio Brown.
This is a shock, by the way.
Antonio Brown, meeting with the media yesterday and didn't really bring up anything about the accuser's or anything like that, ends the Patriots today with ah, Bill Belichick.
He walked off after standing at the podium for only, like, three minutes or so.
He was just peppered by questions back and forth, littered with questions about Antonio Brown and the Patriots decided that the best way would be to move on here from Number 17 A be on the roster for the New England Patriots.
So this breaking news just dropped around 4:10 p.m. Eastern time.
Where went with the breaking news? Antonio Brown has been released by the New England Patriots.
Honestly, I don't think that anybody will pick up Antonio Brown now for the rest of the season.
He's been on three teams now in like less than 10 months with the Steelers, then got traded in large over to the Oakland Raiders and then at right before the season starts.
That Saturday, before the first Sunday of NFL action for Week one, he asked to be released by the Raiders, goes over to the Patriots and last 11 deeds in New England.
This could be a problem, though, for the pager is.
Hopefully, the Patriots are able to move on from this because they integrated him into the game plan last Sunday in Miami.
He was actually the leading receiver in the leading player that was targeted the most times he had double the targets.
Then what? The number two? Why receiver on the roster had joined Edelmann, had four targets.
Antonio Brown led the team last week at Miami with a tart targets.
It was against the Miami Dolphins to the worst team this season in the NFL, and Antonio Brown led the team and targets.
He had four receptions in that game, by the way, with 56 yards and a touchdown catch.
He was pretty quiet, though, in the second half.
But as far as the Patriots outlook here, um actually glad to see that they were able to release them within 11 days, and they just didn't keep this linger.
And throughout the season, I think it would have got worse.
And worse and worse for the Patriots throughout the season is Bill Belichick.
One and even be ableto have, like a normal press conference year like he's usually done like we're onto.
The Jets were on, the Buffalo were onto, the Redskins were onto the Giant.
So Bill Belichick just been absolutely peppered by questions here about Antonio Brown.
And that's all that fella checked, wants to focus on football.
That's all he doesn't want to focus on Antonio Brown.
But of course, the Patriots have released Antonio Brown.
Brown is now officially a free agent at this point, most likely is probably not gonna play another season this season.
The NFL, with all these bombshells dropping throughout the week when Maur accusers coming up this one, which was Ah, source in the Sports Illustrated article, this was, Ah, Sports Illustrated reporter Robert Clem Co.
He posted a story that he'd been contacted by an attorney.
It was foreign artist who alleged that Antonio Brown and meet sexual advances toward her in 2017.
And Antonio Brown had the artist show up to his house because she wanted her to paint a mural of him.
But instead Antonio Brown came out as he was barely clothed out.
All he approached are fully naked in this article that I'm sourcing with only a small towel around Antonio Brown covering his private parts areas, and Antonio Brown, Antonio grounds Accuser painted a mural while he was at his Pittsburgh area home.
But of course, this is so unfortunate towards just basically Antonio Brown here in the NFL.
As far as the Patriots have gone, it's just been so so much allegations that's gone on drought like the past week and 1/2 or so.
It's best to move on.
And that's exactly what the Patriots did.
Bill Belichick couldn't do it.
Nobody else is gonna stand a chance in the NFL.
There's no way that somebody else is going to sign him and they're gonna have Antonio Brown be a part of their team, especially with all these allegations coming up.
It looks like a B is probably most likely sometime throughout the season, even though he's a free agent.
Hell be puts most likely on that, lest with ah that Karim Hunt going on with a non football related activities list on the commissioner's exempt list.
Because all these allegations have just dropped, and it seems like they're getting worse and worse and worse for Antonio Brown.
So that is the official news.
Hear the big news dropping today around 4:10 p.m. Eastern time.
