Antonio Brown, international man of mystery (and former Steelers, Raiders and Patriots wide receiver) will meet with the NFL next week, according to an ESPN report.

If the NFL was on the ball, it would televise the event, given that the last communication between the two parties — on Thursday — was Brown’s delightfully profane missives on Twitter and Instagram.  “@nfl I’ll never play in that (expletive) treat black people the worse! Clear my name and go (expletive) your self,” he wrote in a tweet.

Since floating into the Raiders’ Napa training camp — in a hot air balloon — this summer, Brown has been released by the team for skipping mandatory team functions, has been picked up by the Pats for one game, after which they released him in the face of sexual assault charges. Those charges will be the focus of Brown’s meeting with the league, ESPN reported.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter Brown wishes to be reinstated. Agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN that the Seattle Seahawks are interested in the four-time All-Pro.

“A few teams are very interested in signing Antonio once this process is over,” Rosenhaus said.
