Agent Drew Rosenhaus told Pro Football Talk via text message , “Now that Antonio is a free agent, we are focused on the future and I will immediately work on signing him to a new team,” “Antonio is looking forward to a new beginning.”

Jeff Darlington, a reporter for ESPN, said he received an email Saturday from Brown who he stated that the team “took away my guarantees,” adding that there’s “no way I play.”
