Antonio Brown Reportedly Countersuing Sexual Assault Accuser


Antonio Brown has responded to Britney Taylor.

According to ESPN, Brown is countersuing Taylor for defamation and interference with his NFL contracts and endorsements. Taylor, Brown's former personal trainer, has accused him of sexual assault.

Many people, including Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, say this is a bad move. From a NFL standpoint, with this now looming, it would appear on the surface it would discourage teams from signing him.

Brown has not played in the NFL since Taylor's lawsuit and another allegation of sexual misconduct surfaced in early September. The wide receiver reportedly met with the league for eight hours last week as it conducts an investigation of Brown, who still wants to play in the league despite conflicting tweets over the last two months.

Brown has also apologized to Patriots owner Robert Kraft as he attempts to smooth over some of the relationships he damaged on his way out.

Here's the ESPN story.
