Just four days after he indicated that he was done with the NFL, the broad receiver Antonio Brown bypassed the course by suggesting on Twitter that he hopes to return.
& # 39; I'm still the best why quit now, & # 39; Brown wrote on Thursday.
The 31-year-old free agent also boasted, somewhat ambiguously: & # 39; The game needs me, I'm like test answers. & # 39;
Just four days after he indicated that he was done with the NFL, broad receiver Antonio Brown turned the course by suggesting on Twitter that he hopes to return
Although his tweets were a bit unclear, the general message is that he is not finished with the NFL
Brown agreed to a $ 15 million one-year deal with the New England Patriots on September 7 after being released from Oakland, where he argued with General Manger Mike Mayock over a series of fines.
Since then, Brown & # 39; s former trainer Britney Taylor has filed a lawsuit with the federal court, accusing him of sexually abusing her twice in 2017 and violently raping her in 2018.
A Sports Illustrated report then spoke to another woman who claims she was hired in 2017 to paint a mural in his home in Pennsylvania, where he took off and approached her while wearing only a towel over his genitals.
That unknown woman did not sue and does not insist.
However, this did not stop Brown from sending her threatening text messages in the days that followed.
Brown has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct.
The Patriots finally broke their ties with Brown on Friday and set up a legal battle over his $ 9 million signing bonus.

After his release, Brown announced on Twitter that his football career was over: & # 39; Will no longer play in the @NFL these owners can cancel deals at any time doing what they want, we'll see if the @NFLPA holds them responsible, they can just void guarantees that when they go at 40m they will see 2 months or they pay! & # 39;
The Raiders also destroyed guarantees in Brown's contract after his heated exchange with Mayock over a series of fines, prompting him to demand his release.
Mayock acquired Brown from Pittsburgh through trading in March before becoming the highest paid NFL recipient with a $ 50 million three-year deal.
Thursday, Brown said he hopes to join a fourth team in 2019.
& # 39; Bro. Let's try to play for 4 NFL teams this year & # 39 ;, wrote comedian Will Noonan on Twitter.
Brown replied: & # 39; Big 4X. & # 39;

Drew Rosenhaus, Brown's agent, believes his client will be back in the NFL if and when the competition clears him from any misconduct.
& # 39; I believe Antonio wants to continue his career in the NFL, & # 39; said Rosenhaus on the podcast of retired NFL veteran Warren Sapp.
& # 39; It is my hope, it is Antonio's hope that he will play back as soon as possible, & # 39; Rosenhaus added.
Rosenhaus reiterated Wednesday that teams are interested in Brown, and he expects the wideout to continue playing.
& # 39; I have had conversations with a few teams who are very interested in him and want to know about his future and what is going on with the NFL & # 39 ;, Rosenhaus said on the podcast. & # 39; Hopefully, when all that is resolved, Antonio can continue his career in the Hall of Fame.
. & # 39; .. It is a very difficult time for him, not playing. We expected him to play against the Jets on Sunday, so it's hard for someone who likes the game not to play right now, and the hope is that we'll work with the NFL in his investigation and get him back with a team to complete this continue his great career. & # 39;
Rosenhaus also said that Brown's decision to re-enroll via online courses at his alma mater, Central Michigan, should not be seen as a departure from football and said: “I shouldn't read too much about that. & # 39;
In 10 NFL seasons (the first nine with Pittsburgh), Brown has 841 catches for 11,263 yards and 75 touchdowns. He is a seven-fold Pro Bowl selection and four-fold All-Pro.
