In his first social media activity since officially joining the New England Patriots earlier this week, Antonio Brown live-streamed an Instagram video Thursday evening from inside the TB12 Sports Therapy Center.
Wearing a gray New England Patriots hoodie, a smiling Brown showed off different aspects of the fitness facility — owned by Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his body coach/business partner, Alex Guerrero. Brown flashed his abs, preached the need for hard work and suggested the United States should have a national football team “so the world could love us.”
“The work don’t stop,” the wide receiver said. “Don’t matter what they say. Don’t matter what they hate. Somebody’s got to go to work.”
Brown officially signed with the Patriots on Monday. One day later, his former trainer, Britney Taylor, filed a federal civil lawsuit accusing him of sexually assaulting and raping her. Brown, who strongly denied these allegations, has been a full participant in each of the last two Patriots practices and could make his debut for New England this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
Brown posted multiple Patriots-related Instagram photos after agreeing to terms with the team over the weekend, but his various social media accounts went silent after news of the allegations broke.
