Antonio Brown's Agent Calls Woman's Sexual Assault Lawsuit ‘money Grab'

Antonio Brown's former trainer, Britney Taylor, filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday in Florida, accusing the former Oakland Raiders wide receiver of raping her

The New York Times first detailed the allegations Tuesday, which accuse Brown of sexually assaulting Taylor in three different incidents. On Wednesday, Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus appeared on ESPN's "SportsCenter" to address the situation. 

"Antonio and I have unfortunately been anticipating this possibility," Rosenhaus said. "What I want to emphasize is that Antonio takes these allegations very seriously. He is a loving father of five children, including a daughter. ... I wouldn't be doing this interview if I didn't believe Antonio. These allegations are false. He denies every one of them. I am very confident that his legal team has facts that will prove this." 

Rosenhaus went on to say that Brown would cooperate with his new team in the New England Patriots, the NFL and any investigation. 

"Antonio and I both strongly believe that these allegations are very serious," Rosenhaus said. "In no way do we condone any type of illegal conduct and misbehavior. None of that happened here. 

"This is a money grab. I'll repeat this: This is a money grab. In my opinion, this is a money grab." 

Brown was released by the Raiders on Saturday, prior to the lawsuit being filed. He was then signed by the Patriots later that day. 

Rosenhaus nor coach Bill Belichick would confirm or deny if the Patriots knew about the allegations before New England signed the receiver. Belichick said Brown would practice with the Patriots Wednesday, but didn't commit to him playing Sunday against the Dolphins. 

Rosenhaus concluded his interview by saying, "This is a civil matter, and this is a proceeding where the accuser is seeking financial gain."
