Antonio Brown wants back on the Patriots: ‘Let me earn it’

Antonio Brown wants the New England Patriots to bring him back.

Despite taking a shot at Patriots owner Robert Kraft after the team released him, Brown expressed a desire in an Instagram Live post Wednesday to return to the Patriots, against whom Brown has filed a grievance to recoup lost wages.

“[If] you guys follow the Patriots, tell them to call me,” Brown said. “They still gotta pay me, so might as well let me earn it.”

The Patriots released Brown on Sept. 20 after a second woman accused Brown of sexual misconduct and he allegedly sent that accuser intimidating text messages. Britney Taylor first accused Brown in a civil lawsuit of sexually assaulting her on three occasions. The suit was filed on Sept. 10, three days after Brown and the Patriots agreed to a deal.

Brown, 31, had praise for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick after he was released, but in a since-deleted tweet he wrote, “Kraft got caught in the parlor AB speculations fired different stroke different folks clearly.” Brown was referencing Kraft being charged in February with soliciting a prostitute at a Florida massage parlor.

The wide receiver seems intent on returning to the NFL and isn’t desperate to go to an alternative league like the fledgling XFL.

“XFL? Never. That’s not even in the question,” Brown said in the video.
