Date reportedly set for Antonio Brown to meet with National Football League regarding investigation



The free agent wide receiver, who is now being investigated by the NFL after being accused of sexual misconduct, is scheduled to meet with the league on Wednesday, according to an ESPN report, which states that Brown is "eager" to discuss his side of the story.

Antonio Brown seemed to be firmly on the New England Patriots back in September but it was quickly derailed when he was accused of sexual assault and rape by his former trainer, Britney Taylor.

Josina Anderson of ESPN reported on Thursday that Brown will be meeting with league officials next week.

The NFL is also investigating "intimidating" text messages allegedly sent by Brown to a second accuser regarding the wide receiver making past unwanted advances toward her.

In a tweet from Wednesday, Brown appeared to blame the National Football League for his current unemployed status.

NFL teams appear to be waiting for the league's findings before signing Brown. The prospect of putting him on the Commissioner's Exempt list is not something the league has addressed and that's been cited as a reason why Brown has remained unsigned since being released by the Patriots after one game with the team. Sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Saturday that the Seattle Seahawks had been doing their due diligence on Brown prior to the team signing Josh Gordon, and that quarterback Russell Wilson was pushing for the team to sign Brown.
