It Sure Seems Like Drew Rosenhaus Didn't Tell Patriots About Possible Antonio Brown Lawsuit

Could there be yet another scandal brewing with regards to Antonio Brown?

In one of Drew Rosenhaus' several TV appearances since allegations that the New England Patriots wide receiver raped and sexually assaulted a former personal trainer in 2017 and 2018 were made public, Brown's agent claimed that he has already spoken with the NFLPA regarding the matter, and said he anticipated this lawsuit was coming for some time.

Now hold on a minute. He knew, or at least had an idea, that this could have been coming? Did he disclose that to either the Raiders or the Patriots?

Rosenhaus claims to have spoken to the NFLPA and not the league, and Bill Belichick, in Wednesday's briefing, only repeatedly reiterated that he would not expand on Brown or the team's previous statements.

This could add another layer to the story for Brown, who still could be placed on the commissioner's exempt list.

This could go one of two ways, if we are to take Rosenhaus at his word. Either he knew of these allegations and didn't tell teams about it, or he did and the Patriots signed him anyway. Both scenarios have yet to fully unravel.
