Things could be coming full circle for free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown and the New England Patriots. After releasing the Pro Bowler back in September, the Patriots are reportedly discussing the possibility of re-signing Brown.
The report comes to us via former NFL player and WEEI personality Christian Fauria.
Brown was released after just one game as a member of the Patriots when multiple allegations of sexual assault became public record. New England initially signed the six-time Bowler after the Oakland Raiders released him ahead of Week 1.
If Brown were to sign with the Patriots, he’d still face discipline from the National Football League. Whether this is playing a role in talks behind the scenes remains to be seen.
