Brown originally arrived in New England after being cut by the Oakland Raiders following a series of different off-field disputes.

After Brown was cut on Sept. 7, he signed a one-year deal with the Patriots. Shortly after the signing, Brown was accused of sexual assault and rape on three separate occasions by a former classmate from his time at Central Michigan, Britney Taylor.

As more information, as well as a second sexual misconduct accusation, came out the Patriots decided to cut Brown 11 days after signing him.

Brown played one game for the Patriots — in Miami against the Dolphins — where he recorded four catches for 56 yards and a touchdown.

The NFL’s investigation into the alleged sexual assault by Brown against Taylor is still ongoing.

Patriots still open to Brown reunion, but no timetable for NFL's decision .
Owner Robert Kraft is ultimately the deciding factor, but players and coaches want Brown backOwner Robert Kraft, who released Brown after playing one game with the team, is the deciding factor, and has not shown an inclination to give the receiver another shot after his repeated missteps on social media in the aftermath of his release by the Patriots months ago. However, if Kraft were to reconsider, sources said Brown's teammates and coaches would support bringing him back, with Brown's chemistry with Tom Brady obvious from his initial practice with the team and Brown getting along well with all parties during his brief stint there.
