ALAMEDA -- No matter the development in Antonio Brown's life, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has delivered his edict: Ask the Patriots.
On Tuesday, Brown's former trainer, Britney Taylor, filed a lawsuit in Florida accusing Brown of rape. In total, the lawsuit claims Brown sexually assaulted Taylor three times.
But the question about whether or not the Raiders were aware of the coming lawsuit was thrown Gruden's way Wednesday after practice, and his answer was simple. Ring up the folks at 1 Patriot Place if you want to talk about Antonio Brown.
"I'm not aware of any more questions," Gruden said. "If you want to ask about him you can call his employer."
Gruden obviously hopes that will close the messy but brief Brown era in Oakland, one that was filled with frostbitten feet, helmet grievances, YouTube videos with illegally taped phone calls and a dust-up with general manager Mike Mayock.
Brown is the Patriots problem now. To quote Gruden after the Raiders' win over the Broncos: "Good luck to them."
