Patriots, Nike drop Antonio Brown amid 2nd accusation

MGN/PIttsburg Steelers

(AP) - Both the New England Patriots and Nike have cut ties with Antonio Brown.

Belichick cut short his regular media availability Friday. He said the team is looking into "some things," then refused to answer several more questions about Brown, saying, "I'm done with the rest of it." After another question about Brown, Belichick walked out.

Earlier Friday, Nike spokesman Josh Benedek confirmed that the company is no longer working with Brown, telling The Associated Press, "Antonio Brown is not a Nike athlete." The move comes after Brown, who already faces a civil suit contending he raped a former trainer, was accused of exposing himself to a woman working on a mural at his Pittsburgh home.

Through his lawyer, Brown has denied the allegations.
