NFL Superstar Antonio Brown Accused of Rape Less Than 24 Hours After Signing With the Patriots

There’s a conspiracy theory/rumor circulating on the internet that Antonio Brown engineered his release from the Oakland Raiders earlier this week because he had already reached an agreement to play for the Patriots, mainly because New England adjusted Tom Brady’s contract to free up salary cap space a month ago.

It’s unsurprising that the Patriots would want to sign Brown, who is not only the best wide receiver in the NFL today, he’s one of the best of all time, a player of the caliber of Jerry Rice and Lynn Swan.

Also unsurprising for a New England player, he’s been accused of multiple sexual assaults. He’s going to fit right into the den of cheaters he’s signed with. I think that if New England had known about these allegations earlier they would have drafted him as a rookie.

But what exactly did Antonio Brown allegedly do? Well, ESPN reports that his former trainer accused him of three separate incidents of sexual assault. In the first, he pulled his dick out and kissed her. The second incident involved him jacking off behind her without her knowing and finishing on her back. And in the third, most serious incident, she claims he held her down and raped her.

Brown tells a different story, through his lawyer.

Brown’s lawyer, Darren Heitner, said in a statement Tuesday night that the receiver and Taylor were involved in a “consensual personal relationship. Any sexual interaction with Mr. Brown was entirely consensual.”

In a tweet on Tuesday, Heitner said that Brown “will leave no stone unturned and will aggressively defend himself, including all of his rights in countersuits.”

CBS’s Gary Parrish tweeted that Brown’s accuser saved text messages he allegedly sent her talking about the second incident (though it looks like an e-mail to me).

That isn’t particularly counter to Browns defense of a consensual relationship, though. “I jack my dick on your back” doesn’t necessarily mean she was opposed to it. It’s a pretty weird thing to do consensually, though. Has anyone reading this ever been with a woman who said “I don’t feel like having sex, how about you just jack off on my back”? I feel like that has probably never happened.

The Patriots issued a brief statement basically saying rape is bad but not bad enough to get you cut by the Patriots.

The league is taking this very seriously, Brown could get as much as a two-game suspension. But to be fair, it’s not like he did something really bad, like kneel during the national anthem to protest police brutality against black men. He’d be out of the league already if he did that.
