The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the league is considering putting Brown on its commissioner's exempt list.

The suit, filed Tuesday in the Southern District of Florida, claims that Brown first sexually assaulted Taylor twice in June 2017, first by exposing himself in front of her and kissing her without her consent before, later that month, masturbating in her presence and ejaculating onto her back, according to the outlet.

Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has labelled Taylor's lawsuit as nothing more than a "money grab" and says that Brown will be fully cooperative during the investigation.

The Patriots confirmed in a brief statement that they are aware of the allegations levied against Brown, and that the National Football League is looking into it, according to NBC Sports.

Yet, in the first images from Brown's time at Patriots practice, it was clear that he wasn't wearing the Xenith Shadow or even the helmet he wore in preseason warmups with Oakland.

The lawsuit against Brown states that what happened inside the Pittsburgh area home made Taylor "extremely uncomfortable", and that she had "no interest in a sexual relationship with Brown".

According to another report, Brown plans to countersue Taylor. "Having reviewed our records, we found no prior police investigative contacts regarding these allegations or these individuals".

Brown signed a one-year, $15 million contract with roughly $10 million guaranteed.

He offers a hypothetical rebuttal from Taylor's legal team, suggesting that Brown could enjoy bias or favoritism from law enforcement because of his status as a celebrity. The Patriots announced on Tuesday that they were going to leave everything in the hands of the NFL.

"As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly hard decision", her statement reads.

With Brown at practice, that means there's definitely a chance that he could be making his Patriots debut on Sunday against the Dolphins.

The sources also declined to speculate on knowledge the Raiders or Steelers might have had before letting Brown go.

"At the end of the day, if you still work with someone that's been sexually assaulting you, how is that sexual assault?".
