Antonio Brown not expected to return to the NFL this season
Free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown is not expected to play again this season, according to league sources.
Brown is not expected to play in the NFL again this season, barring a significant turn of events. Brown is scheduled for a meeting with the league on Thursday to address his sexual assault allegations, but further obstacles would stand between him and a return this season, including the likely possibility of being placed on the commissioner's exempt list, or a suspension if he is cleared to play. Brown has been in contact with three teams but at this point, it is unlikely he sees the field again this season. However, Brown's Agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has disputed these reports, stating that he is "confident Antonio will play again this season. I believe the NFL should clear him after they interview him this week and I expect him to be signed shortly after that".
Brown played one game this season, with the New England Patriots in Week 2, hauling in 4 receptions for 56 yards and 1 touchdown on 8 targets.
