Report: Patriots won't be re-signing Antonio Brown

Ever since the random statement Antonio Brown posted to social media on Tuesday apologizing to New England Patriots team owner Robert Kraft, the rumors, or perhaps more accurately fan hope, was that the team would re-sign the receiver.

Maybe the apology was a precursor to a return, went the logic, even though Brown is currently being investigated by the NFL after a woman who worked as his former trainer filed a lawsuit accusing him of three counts of sexual assault including forcible rape, and a second woman said he acted inappropriately when she was hired to paint a mural in his Pittsburgh-area home.
