Antonio Brown says he's retiring from the NFL in a series of tweets.

Antonio Brown spent all offseason taking steps toward playing in the NFL again. He recently ramped up his workouts, adding more sessions in hopes of landing a new NFL gig, though now, it appears the wide receiver has decided to walk away from the game.

This is the third time since last September that Brown has announced that he is done with the NFL. In latest his string of tweets, Brown added that “at this point the risk is greater than the reward.” While it’s not certain whether he’s referring to the risks of COVID-19 or injuries such as concussions.

 

The Seahawks had interest in Brown, though they, like many teams, were waiting to see what kind of suspension the NFL will hand the wide receiver. Brown worked out with Seahawks QB Russell Wilson earlier this offseason. He’s also worked out with Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins and Ravens QB Lamar Jackson.

The 7-time Pro Bowler is still under NFL investigation over a bevy of off-field issues, including rape allegations from his former trainer Britney Taylor.

Brown got his release from the Raiders and signed with the Patriots last season, though he was let go by New England after just one game.
