The agent of the whole agent, with free agent Antonio Brown, was suspended from eight games without having to pay for multiple NFL violations. The league announced Friday.
Brown was the subject of an NFL investigation after a lawsuit filed by his former coach alleged that Brown had sexually assaulted him several times. Brown was also accused of sexual abuse in his house by an artist who worked there in 2017.
The broad receiver said his sexual relationship with the coach was consensual, and Brown met with the NFL in November as part of an investigation.
In a notice of suspension, the NFL said Brown was focused on continuing to provide counseling and treatment. The league also said that any further violation would likely lead to tougher discipline.
Brown last played for the New England Patriots in September 2019. The Patriots released him a week later, and the team hasn’t signed him since.
If Brown signs with the team before the due date, he will be allowed to participate in foresight activities. The suspension will take place after the final reduction of the schedule on September 5 and will be eligible for return after the team has played eight matches.
