What’s that saying about things coming in threes?

The New England Patriots announced they were releasing wide receiver Antonio Brown just days after signing him. A spokesperson for the team released a statement saying, “The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time.”

Following the announcement, AB thanked the Patriots for the “opportunity,” and posted a series of photos from his first and only game with the team. He followed it up with another tweet; a picture of the late Nipsey Hussle with a quote that reads, “Some people try to destroy you, precisely because they recognize your power. Not because they don’t see it, because they see it and they don’t want it to exist.”

The latest news comes after a series of unfortunate events for Brown. Earlier this month he signed a one-year contract, worth up to $15 million with the New England after being released by the Raiders. This of course is all happening in the midst of sexual assault allegations against AB by his former trainer, Britney Taylor. Nike also recently decided to terminate their partnership with the WR.

Brown made light of the situation with another Tweet that read, “Just got fired on Friday.”
