Brown's agent: 'Our goal is to salvage this relationship' with Raiders

Brown's agent: 'Our goal is to salvage this relationship' with Raiders As Antonio Brown's ongoing beef with the Oakland Raiders hit full stride Thursday, the wide receiver's agent attempted to diffuse the situation following reports the Raiders could potentially suspend Brown after an altercation with general manager Mayock. "Not a lot is clear yet, other than the Raiders said AB should stay home today," Drew Rosenhaus told Stacey Dales on NFL Network, according to Ian Rapoport. "We haven't heard anything about a potential decision yet ... We're trying to work through this. The goal is to work everything out." He added: "Our goal is to salvage this relationship ... There is two sides to every story.

During an appearance Wednesday on ESPN's Sportscenter, Antonio Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus said he's "very confident" his client will be cleared of rape allegations.

"Antonio takes these allegations very seriously," Rosenhaus told ESPN, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. "He is a loving father (of) five children, including a daughter. I, myself, am a father and I have two children, two daughters, that I love very much, along with my wife.

"I wouldn't be doing this interview if I didn't believe Antonio. These allegations are false. He denies every one of them. I'm very confident that his legal team has facts that will prove this."

Report: NFL to consider putting Brown on commissioner's exempt list

Report: NFL to consider putting Brown on commissioner's exempt list The NFL will give "serious consideration" to placing Antonio Brown on its commissioner's exempt list after the New England Patriots wide receiver was accused of raping his former trainer in a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday, sources told Mark Maske of The Washington Post. If placed on the list, Brown would be paid but wouldn't be eligible to play or practice. It's unclear whether the league will make a decision before New England's next game, a Sunday matchup with the Miami Dolphins. Potentially placing Brown on the list is something the NFL "is going to have to focus on," according to one of Maske's sources.

Rosenhaus said the accusations leveled by Brown's former trainer Britney Taylor are a "money grab" and called for the public to "allow the situation to play itself out."

"I'm advising him to let the truth come out," Rosenhaus said. "I'm advising him to concentrate on football. I'm advising him to cooperate with the Patriots, with the NFL, with the NFLPA. Antonio and I both strongly believe that these allegations are very serious.

"In no way do we condone any type of illegal conduct, misbehavior. None of that happened here. This is a money grab. I'll repeat this, this is a money grab. In my opinion, this is a money grab."

In a statement Tuesday, Brown's lawyer also said the All-Pro wideout "refuses to be the victim of what he believes to be a money grab."

Brown denies new sexual misconduct claim against him

Brown denies new sexual misconduct claim against him Antonio Brown's attorney, Darren Heitner, took to Twitter on Monday to state his client's denial of new sexual misconduct claims made against him. In a report from Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated, an artist claimed Brown invited her to his Pennsylvania home in 2017 to paint a mural of him. During her second day on the job, she "was in a kneeling position while painting and turned to find Brown behind her, naked, holding a small hand towel over his genitals." Through his attorney, Brown denied engaging in such activities.

A federal lawsuit filed Tuesday stated Brown sexually assaulted Taylor on three separate occasions in 2017 and 2018.

Brown practiced with the Patriots for the first time Wednesday. The NFL is reportedly weighing whether to place him on the commissioner's exempt list, which would make him ineligible to play.
