Free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown is not doing himself any favors in the lead up to a meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Brown took to social media earlier on Thursday with a expletive-laden rant calling out the NFL and pretty much signifiying he’s going to retire from football.

In an attempt at damage control later in the day, Brown clarified his stance.

Calling out the NFL in the manner we saw earlier on Thursday is not going to help matters here. Brown’s mental health also now has to be called into question.

This latest drama comes after the New England Patriots released the former Pro Bowler following multiple allegations of sexual assault becoming public record.

It will be interesting to see how the meeting goes next week in New York City. Maybe someone should take Brown’s phone away from him until then.
