Antonio Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, will no longer work with his client until the wide receiver seeks professional help, ESPN reported on Thursday. The letter, per the source, explains that Rosenhaus will rescind the termination if Brown secures appropriate counseling within the next five days. He was traded to the Oakland Raiders in March but cut from that team 5 ½ months later after a series of weird incidents, then spent one game with the New England Patriots before they released him in the wake of sexual assault allegations and Brown's responses to them.
The NFL has not concluded that investigation. Roger Goodell has warned teams that Brown may be placed on the commissioner's exempt list if he lands with a new team, but the National Football League has yet to release a ruling.
The former Steelers star was seen earlier this week waving a bag of phallic gummies at the mother of some of his children and the Hollywood, Florida police, via Instagram live, in an apparent dispute over auto keys and access to his home.
It's hard to find a more steep and freakish fall from grace than what Brown has experienced in the previous year. That came after a profanity-filled outburst, posted on social media, that he directed at police officers and the mother of his children.
In grievances filed through the NFLPA, Brown is attempting to force the Patriots and Oakland Raiders to pay him about $40 million in voided guarantees, unpaid salaries and fines.
