Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowl receiver, is an inactive free agent for most of the 2019 season. The Oakland Raiders split with Brown when he publicly demanded his release after the preseason. He was active for a game with the New England Patriots, but was released shortly thereafter, amid allegations of sexual assault.RELATED
Additionally, the state of Florida has filed three formal charges against Brown for an alleged assault in January, which resulted in his arrest.
Brown, 31, faces felony robbery, misdemeanor and misdemeanor charges, according to a Broward County court document obtained by ESPN.
In January, agent Drew Rosenhaus ended his relationship with Brown.
Brown has continued to have trouble with the law since he was released by the Patriots. In January, she posted an assault on Hollywood, Florida police and the mother of three of her children on social media.
Brown attacked the NFL and various teams and players via social media this season, including former Pittsburgh Steelers teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster and Raiders quarterback Derek Carr.
The NFL began an investigation into Brown after her former fitness coach, Britney Taylor, filed a lawsuit alleging that Brown sexually assaulted her multiple times. Brown was also accused of sexual misconduct by an artist in 2017.
The latest charges in Broward County are likely to be included in the NFL investigation.
When Tom Brady left the Patriots and signed with the Buccaneers last month, it was speculated that Brown may be meeting in Tampa Bay with Brady, who has posted encouraging messages for Brown on social media.
But coach Bruce Arians dismissed that idea and said, “There’s no room, it’s just not going to happen, it doesn’t fit here.”
Brown trained last week with Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, and a video posted to the NFL MVP’s Instagram account showed Brown caught a 50-yard pass in a sprint.
On Monday, Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta declined to comment when asked if Baltimore was interested in signing Brown.
“Those are internal things, I don’t feel the need to share that with you right now,” he said.
