Why Antonio Brown Deserves His $9 Million Signing Bonus With the Patriots

New England Patriots v Miami Dolphins
Chris Broussard: “There is no way I’d be paying this dude and I feel no sympathy for him, NONE.”
Rob Parker: “Antonio Brown is going to get money, I guarantee it. You would get chewed up in court, Chris.”

Listen to Rob Parker and Chris Broussard discuss Antonio Brown’s impending battle with the New England Patriots over his $9 million signing bonus that the team has initially refused payment on just days after the team released the embattled wide receiver.

The Patriots reportedly balked on paying Brown the first installment of his signing bonus on Monday, which was going to be worth $5 million.

After signing with the team on September 7th, Brown was sued by his former trainer who accused Brown of rape three days later on September 10th.

Brown suited up for the team’s Week 2 blowout victory over the Dolphins on September 15th despite the sexual assault allegations still fresh in the news cycle.

A day later on September 16th , Sports Illustrated writer Robert Klemko published a damaging exposé that included a second wave of sexual misconduct allegations.

Four days later on September 20th, the second accuser that was mentioned in the SI article leaked threatening text messages Brown had sent her about her admissions in the article, with would lead to the Patriots releasing Brown on the same day.

The Patriots will argue that Brown withheld pertinent information from them regarding the sexual assault allegations against Brown, and contend they never would have signed Brown if they knew about a potential lawsuit.

Check out the audio below as Parker argues that the Patriots do not have the same grounds to refuse payments to Brown like the Raiders did, who had clear cut examples of insubordination and conduct detrimental to the team that were directly related to football.
