Antonio Brown Says 'I Look Forward to Joining a New Team Soon' After NFL Ban

Free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown said Friday he's looking forward to his next NFL opportunity after the league announced he's received an eight-game suspension to open the 2020 season because of multiple violations of its Personal Conduct Policy.

Brown posted a statement on Instagram after the NFL's announcement:

"I look forward to new beginnings. I want to be the best version of myself on and off the field, and I will do my best to be a great teammate. I appreciate the NFL giving me the opportunity to continue to work on myself and improve.
