The Antonio Brown era in New England is over.
Just 11 days after the wide receiver signed a one-year deal with the Patriots following a quick falling-out with the Raiders, on Friday he was released once again.
"The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time," the Patriots said in a team-issued statement.
The receiver caught four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown in his only game as a Patriot, a 43-0 win over the Dolphins in Miami.
Within the past 10 days, Brown has been accused of previous incidents of sexual assault and misconduct, starting with a lawsuit filed against him in South Florida. Late Thursday night, Sports Illustrated's Robert Klemko wrote a story that Brown had allegedly sent intimidating text messages to an alleged victim.
The Jets will face the Patriots on Sunday in Foxborough. Jets head coach Adam Gase spoke earlier on Friday about the challenge of playing against a player of Brown's caliber, but obviously he now won't be on the field on Sunday.
The wide receiver is once again a free agent.
