National Football League expected to interview Antonio Brown next week

He may be one of the more talented receivers in the National Football League, but he had continually refused to show up to work, whether over a disagreement with his coaches and quarterbacks (in Pittsburgh) or over a disagreement with the National Football League over a helmet grievance (in Oakland).

Two women have accused Brown of varying degrees of sexual assault, ranging from forced kissing to rape. He racked up 841 receptions and 75 touchdowns in 10 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots. The league previously interviewed Brown's first accuser, Britney Taylor, who claims in a civil suit that Brown assaulted her twice before raping her. The first accusation wasn't made public until after Brown had essentially forced his release from the Oakland Raiders following a weird series of events which included a helmet spat, a cryotherapy injury, and an altercation with GM Mike Mayock.

The league also said when Brown was released by the New England Patriots in September that it would consider putting him on paid administrative leave via placement on the commissioner's exempt list if he's signed by a team.

He remarked: "The creation of the ITA was made possible by start-up funding of $30 million from the IOC". Wada reported income of $35.4m in 2018, up from $32m in 2017.

NFL teams appear to be waiting for the league's findings before signing Brown.

Brown tweeted those words out on Thursday during a social media tirade where he ripped the NFL for the way he believes the league treats black people.

The NFL is investigating Brown regarding multiple accusations.
