BOSTON – Antonio Brown has apologized to the New England Patriots and team owner, Robert Kraft, for the negative attention he attracted to the team during his brief stay.
The receiver opened four times All-Pro posted a message on his Instagram account on Tuesday, writing: "All I wanted was to be an asset to the organization; an apology for the negative attention and drama!"
The apology comes after publications in which he said he would fight against the Patriots' decision to withhold a $ 9 million signing bonus. It was also reported that he met with NFL officials last week to discuss the various allegations of sexual assault against him that could result in a possible suspension under the league's personal conduct policy, should he be hired by another equipment.RELATED
The Patriots severed ties with Brown in September after just one game, after the allegation of inappropriate sexual behavior by a second woman came to light. They were the third team in less than a year to get tired of activities outside the field of the open catcher, overshadowing their exploits inside the grid.
On his first Sunday without a job in the NFL, Brown turned to social networks to lash out against Kraft and Pittsburgh Steelers veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
