Antonio Brown: “Mr. Kraft, I apologize sincerely to you and your organization! All I wanted to be was an asset to the organization; sorry for the bad media and drama! Thank you sincerely. – AB.”
Disgraced former All-Pro NFL wideout Antonio Brown surprisingly accomplished positive press on Tuesday, when he took to his verified Instagram account to formally apologize to New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
Brown obviously has suffered one of the most rapid free falls in sports history when he was the protagonist in a catastrophic stretch of PR nightmares in short order that included everything from frostbitten feet, helmet grievances, racially charged tirades, unannounced hiatuses, hazardous tantrums, undesired flatulence, spiteful freeloading, and Twitter beefs.
And that’s not even counting the accusations of sexual deviance and rape.
This apology came just two months after Brown blasted Kraft on Twitter on September 22nd, 2019.
Brown posted a picture of himself and former trainer Britney Taylor, who accused him of rape earlier this month, slapping ‘fives’ in a foam pit with the caption “Kraft got caught in the parlor, AB speculations fired. Different strokes, different folks clearly”, alluding to Kraft’s supposed role in a series of events that got him charged with “soliciting another to commit prostitution” as Kraft was allegedly receiving oral sex in a Jupiter, Florida massage parlor on a regular basis.
Brown routinely posts Instagram stories to his personal account that show him either working out in the gym, or partaking in football-related drills.
Brown had signed with the Patriots on September 7th just hours after being cut by the Oakland Raiders, but was released 13 days later after a second woman came forward with sexual deviance chargers, that even alleged Brown made threats to her over her role in a tell-all expose by Sports Illustrated into Brown’s foul character.
Brown had suited up for the Patriots in their Week 2 43-0 blowout over the Miami Dolphins and had caught four passes for 56 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown strike from Tom Brady.
