Roger Goodell On Antonio Brown

The NFL’s investigation into Antonio Brown won’t wrap up anytime soon. This week, commissioner Roger Goodell indicated that no decision is imminent, which means that Brown will remain in football limbo for the foreseeable future.

They [have] still not completed the investigation,” Goodell said. “They did, our investigators did [meet with Brown], I did not meet with Antonio. But they have more work to do. They’re following up on that. And I’ll get an update when they have more information.”

The league began looking into Brown’s situation shortly after one of his accusers filed a lawsuit against him. Then, in November, they sat down with the wide receiver to get his side of the story, but the process is far from over.

At this time, it seems unlikely that Brown will be cleared to play in the 2019 season. If something changes, he could be a consideration for playoff teams, though the Patriots are not interested in a reunion.

Brown, 31, has caught 841 passes for 11,253 yards over the course of his ten-year career.

    So disappointing as a Raiders fan…if he just could’ve walked the line I feel like we might’ve sniffed the playoffs this year and been in great shape for our first season in Vegas next year…now not only did he blow it for the Raiders organization, he’s completely blown it for himself as well

      As a Chiefs fan , im still spending the week explaining to Raider fans what mathematically eliminated means.

          I mean…it’s the NFL. There’s a lot of that going on. At least the Chiefs took a stand on Kareem Hunt. Also, fans don’t make personnel decisions. So…not an apt argument there.

      I always thought if someone was to sign him, that team should owe the Raiders a high draft pick. What a waste.

    • Steezy

      As a Raider fan, they were delusional (repeatedly) for thinking that would ever work out. They don’t deserve the pick

    What a nut. Was destined for the Hall of Fame as potentially one of the top 3 receivers ever, along with Jerry Rice/Randy Moss/Larry Fitzgerald.

    Then, Mr. Big Chest emerged. And the rest is history.

    Work on that degree at Central Michigan, Mr. Big Chest. That is, if you even ever actually enrolled, or haven’t been kicked out yet.

    Can’t disagree w/some of the comments, but the NFL sure is dragging their feet on this, almost like they don’t want him back in the league!

    • The Ghost of Bobby Bonilla

      He’s a FORMER player. The league doesn’t have to do a thing or owe him anything until he signs with a team.

      Then, they owe him a speedy decision on any possible punishment. I’ll bet though that John Dorsey can’t wait to add him to his personal circus and freakshow in Cleveland.

      Yeah Daryl thy should rush a judgment out quickly for a guy that quit on everybody and said he’d never play again and is not currently employed. Rush that verdict out quickly, that way when more information does sprung up they can look like bigger fools like they did in the Ray Rice case.

    I think Antonio Brown is a repugnant turd, but I’m wondering if the NFL is dragging its heels investigating the allegations against him, in hope that he screws up some other way that justifies a long suspension/banning?

    Any investigative team working for Goodell would no doubt make Inspector Clouseau look like a model of efficiency.

    Mike Tomlin magically became a much smarter coach after the two man children left his locker room.

  7. luvbeisbol

    Choose. Twitter account or football career? Obviously he can’t have both.

    atleast the raiders didn’t give up a ton to get brown pick wise . tho I do with the pats , Dallas or redskins would have forked over a pair of 1sts for him instead of him going to the raiders. as u can tell im not a fan of those 3 teams lol .

    but u knew it really seems like a was on drugs when he went off while with the raiders, to me those incidents warrant drug testing when they happen . just my opinion

    • Polish Hammer

      Trying to decipher the above post makes me think he’s not the only one in need of drug testing…

    “If something changes, he could be a consideration for playoff teams…”

    Asking forgiveness for my ignorance here – in MLB, a player has to be on the roster by September 1 in order to be eligible for post-season play. Does a similar rule simply not exist in the NFL?

    • compassrose

      There is a day they need to be on the roster I think it is that last game of the season but not sure. You need to make sure you have someone on the practice squad if there is a guy fighting an injury to replace him.
