Although Brown is facing multiple allegations of sexual assault stemming from the lawsuit, the Patriots' newest receiver is still eligible to practice and play in games.

According to a statement issued by Brown's attorney, Darren Heitner, Brown "denies each and every allegation in the lawsuit". The league has the option to place Brown on the commissioner's exempt list - which would remove him from the team's active list while still being paid - but might not levy that decision this week.

The lawsuit says Brown sexually assaulted Taylor twice during training sessions in June 2017, exposing himself and kissing her without consent in the first incident. The most serious allegation from Taylor is that Brown raped her in May 2018.

Belichick deferred to the Patriots' statement late Tuesday, which said they were aware of the lawsuit and "take these allegations very seriously".

In the portion of practice open to media, Brown wore a No. 1 jersey and a visor with his helmet while going through warmup drills with teammates.

The lawsuit against Brown states that what happened inside the Pittsburgh area home made Taylor "extremely uncomfortable", and that she had "no interest in a sexual relationship with Brown".

Brown signed a one-year, $15 million contract with roughly $10 million guaranteed.

Brown intends to countersue Taylor for civil extortion, ESPN's Josina Anderson reported.

Antonio Brown is no longer Jon Gruden's problem.

What does sexual assault lawsuit filed against Brown mean?

Taylor says in the suit she then cut off ties with Brown. We will be reaching out to the pertinent police agencies to determine if they had any prior contacts or investigations. The Patriots announced on Tuesday that they were going to leave everything in the hands of the NFL.

Brown was originally traded from Pittsburgh to Oakland in the offseason. But a weird foot injury, fight with the National Football League over his helmet, skipped practices, multiple fines, a run-in with general manager Mike Mayock and his social media posts ultimately led to the decision to release him.

The sources also declined to speculate on knowledge the Raiders or Steelers might have had before letting Brown go.
