Drew Rosenhaus is done with Antonio Brown, at least until he gets some help.
The high-powered NFL agent terminated his relationship with Brown, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Thursday, citing an NFLPA source.
Rosenhaus, according to Schefter, informed the NFLPA through a letter it received Thursday. Per Schefter’s report, Rosenhaus believes Brown needs help for his ongoing issues, as the former All-Pro wideout remains out of football. Schefter also reported Brown’s attorney, Darren Heitner, removed himself as counsel.

Since being released by the Patriots in September, Brown’s off-field behavior has been puzzling at best and almost always at least bordering on troubling. Most recently, Brown had yet another outburst amid a run-in with local police in Florida. Brown broadcasted that entire ordeal on Instagram, as he cursed out police officers in the street with children coming in and out of the house.
Unsurprisingly, Brown tweeted Thursday just as the news broke.
They want to finish us

Take that as you will.
