Bucs wide receiver Antonio Brown is once again in a legal situation, but this time around he is the one filing a lawsuit.
According to a story by Daniel Kaplan of The Athletic, Brown is suing his former agent, Drew Rosenhaus, over “double dealing” and putting Brown into business with a marketing agency that was owned by Rosenhaus without Brown’s knowledge.
Per the report, Brown is claiming that the marketing company KCB Marketing, which has sued the 33-year old for $2.4 million, is a front that Rosenhaus has set up.
Rosenhaus is one of the most successful agents in the NFL, representing close to 100 players. This includes representing Bucs outside linebacker, Shaq Barrett, who signed a four-year, $72 million deal last season.
Brown was previously represented by Rosenhaus for 10 years, but parted ways in 2020 amidst the receiver’s many legal allegations. He hired Ed Wasielewski of EMG Sports as his new agent in April of that same year.
After getting suspended for the first eight games of the 2020 season, Brown signed with the Bucs for the rest of the year, catching a touchdown pass in the team’s Super Bowl LV win. This offseason the All-Pro wideout signed a one-year deal again to remain in Tampa Bay.
