NFL Rumors: Antonio Brown Charged With Assaulting Driver In Florida

The chances of Antonio Brown latching on with another NFL team might’ve become more unlikely Saturday.

Brown has been handed three formal charges by the state of Florida for an alleged assault back in January, an incident that saw Brown arrested. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that Brown is facing felonies regarding burglary conveyance, misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor criminal mischief.

Here’s what Fowler reported regarding the NFL’s involvement.

“The latest charges will likely be reviewed by the NFL, which opened an investigation of Brown in the fall after his former trainer Britney Taylor accused him of rape and sexual assault in a civil lawsuit,” Fowler wrote. “Brown has since filed a countersuit. Brown, who missed all but one game last season, has interest in continuing his football career but will undoubtedly face discipline from the league.”

The probability of Brown signing was low to begin with, as he’s already being investigated by the league for allegations of sexual misconduct, including rape.
