In a move that surely his lawyer did not approve, former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown posted an email on social media that shows a $2.7 million settlement offer he and his legal team made to his sexual assault accuser in 2019.
The email, dated August 30, 2019, has been confirmed as being real by TMZ Sports who also states that the $.27 million offer was made to Brown’s former personal trainer Britney Taylor.
Taylor’s lawsuit was filed on September 11, 2019, so the settlement offer Brown has revealed would have come just two weeks before she filed the legal papers.
The email from Brown’s attorney Bruce Zimet reads in part, “Just got a call from Mediator that she accepts $2.7 million. Am awaiting written confirmation.”
TMZ reports “something went sideways before the deal could be closed.” That something reportedly being Antonio Brown, who has insisted that his and Taylor’s relationship was consensual.
Meanwhile, Saturday night Brown hosted the Compound Saturday Night event in Atlanta rocking a Raiders lid. AB had recently expressed a desire to return to the Raiders despite the fact that he is still involved in a grievance hearing in his bid to recover at least $30 million from the team.
Which is one of many reasons why, when asked about a possible reunion with Brown, Raiders general manager Mike Mayock replied, according to RaidersWire, “Antonio Brown, I have very little comment about. I think he had his time with the Raiders and I think his time there is up.”
