Less than 48 hours after being released by the Patriots, Antonio Brown has made a decision about his future.

In a Sunday morning Twitter rant that touched on multiple topics, Brown said he will no longer be playing in the NFL after his Friday release by the Patriots, the latest chapter in a months-long saga that featured bizarre behavior, a release by the Raiders, an 11-day stint with the Patriots, and multiple sexual assault allegations.

Brown also expressed his discontent for how the Patriots handled his release.

The NFL investigation into Brown’s sexual assault allegations is still ongoing, but Brown took aim at his former teammate, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who was suspended for the first four games during the 2010 season because of an investigation into sexual assault allegations against him. Roethlisberger was not charged because there was insufficient evidence.


Brown also took aim at CBS NFL analyst Shannon Sharpe remaining with the network even after he decided to step away from his position in 2010 when he faced sexual assault allegations.
