NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was asked Wednesday about the league's investigation into multiple allegations made against Brown, who was released by the New England Patriots on Sept. 20 after just 11 days with the organization. Goodell offered a very vague response that did little to clarify Brown's situation.

Trainer Who Accused Former NFL Player Antonio Brown Of Rape Has Dropped Federal Lawsuit

  Trainer Who Accused Former NFL Player Antonio Brown Of Rape Has Dropped Federal Lawsuit Lawyers for Britney Taylor voluntarily dismissed their lawsuit from federal court and re-filed it in state court.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell fielded a question about Antonio Brown ’s status early in his press conference from Super Bowl LIV in Miami on Wednesday. Brown has been out of the NFL since being released by the Patriots in September in the wake of a lawsuit accusing him of sexual assault.

If Antonio Brown was hoping for some sign that his days under NFL investigation were coming to an end, he was undoubtedly disappointed by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday.

"We're still working at that," Goodell said during a press conference at the league meetings in Florida. "I will probably be getting an update when I get back to New York. Our folks have been working diligently at that. When we reach a conclusion, I'll obviously let you know."

Brown, who had signed with the Patriots after being released by the Oakland Raiders, is facing a sexual assault lawsuit. He's also been accused of sending intimidating text messages to a woman who accused him of sexual misconduct in a Sports Illustrated story published last month.

The NFL released a statement immediately following Brown's release from New England, saying it planned to pursue the allegations "vigorously and expeditiously," but Goodell's comments suggest nothing has been determined to this point. Thus, Brown's football future hangs in the balance, as teams potentially interested in signing the 31-year-old still don't know whether he'll face discipline from the league.

NFL's Roger Goodell downplays idea of draft lottery to discourage tanking

  NFL's Roger Goodell downplays idea of draft lottery to discourage tanking "I don't think the league has ever been more competitive than it is today," Goodell said.With the trend of NFL teams tanking, specifically the Dolphins and Browns in recent years, many have suggested the league implement a draft lottery in order to discourage teams from intentionally throwing seasons away.

Antonio Brown 's absence from the NFL will likely continue into 2020. Speaking Wednesday after the NFL fall meetings in Florida concluded, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell briefly addressed the league's investigation into the allegations made against the receiver, who was released by the Raiders

Coincidentally (or not), Brown posted an apology on social media today to the Patriots and team owner Robert Kraft. Quarterback Tom Brady reportedly was miffed when Brown was cut, and Brady could be happy to see Brown return for the final weeks of the season.

"As long as Mr. Brown is a free agent, placement on the Commissioner's exempt list is not appropriate," the NFL's statement from Sept. 20 read. "If he is signed by a club, such placement may become appropriate at any time depending on the status of the investigation. Upon the conclusion of the investigation, he may also be subject to discipline if the investigation finds that he has violated the law or league policies."

Brown has made it clear he'd like to return to the NFL. And it even appears he'd welcome a return to the Patriots, although New England reportedly has no interest in a reunion. But it's hard to imagine there being much of a market for Brown's services despite his obvious talent, especially with the NFL still looking into the troubling allegations made against the seven-time Pro Bowl pick.

Brown spent his first nine seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers before requesting a trade, paving the way for his brief and unceremonious tenures with the Raiders and Patriots in recent months.

Frustrated Antonio Brown has active morning on Twitter .
Receiver Antonio Brown continues to wait for his next opportunity, and he continues to be justifiably frustrated by the fact that the NFL’s slow-moving investigation is essentially keeping Brown suspended without pay. A day after Brown tweeted (and deleted) a suggestion that he’s being blackballed by the league and separately seemed to concede that he won’t play again until 2020, Brown embarked on an extended Twitter Q&A that was, to say the least, interesting.
