Antonio Brown avoids return to Bay Area by settling lawsuit

Antonio Brown has put a small legal matter behind him.

The former Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots wide receiver settled a small claims lawsuit filed in Alameda County court by his personal trainer, Sean Pena.

Pena claimed Brown owed him $7,194.81 in “unpaid therapy and training services” and “agreed-upon reimbursement for hotels, airfare, rental car” during a week in April spent preparing for the NFL season.

Attorneys for Pena and Brown on Tuesday told the Bay Area News Group a confidential resolution was reached before a trial date scheduled for Wednesday morning. The hearing will be taken off the court’s calendar, saving Brown from having to personally appear in a Hayward courtroom.
