A week before he is scheduled to meet with NFL investigators, free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown backtracked Thursday afternoon after a profanity-filled tweet earlier in the day that said he wants the league to "clear my name" and reiterated that he'll "never play" again, ESPN reports.

Earlier Thursday, sources told ESPN's Josina Anderson that Brown is scheduled to meet with the NFL next week concerning accusations of sexually assaulting multiple women and that the veteran is eager to present his side.

Hours later, Brown took to social media to display his frustration with the league.

"Imagine conforming to a system giving it a 100 percent to see them treat me like this is unfairly!" Brown said on Twitter. "Making money off my sweat and blood F--- the @nfl I'll never play in that s--- treat black people the worse! Clear my name and go f--- your self."

Brown took a similar stance in a since-deleted post on Instagram, writing that he is "going down another path" and telling fantasy football players to "let it go."

Later Thursday afternoon, however, Brown changed his tune, posting on social media that he was "very frustrated" and "determined" to return to the NFL.

Despite Brown initially tweeting Sept. 22 that he "will not be playing in the NFL anymore," sources told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler last month that Brown hopes to have his playing status cleared up before signing with an NFL team.

Sources told ESPN on Thursday that there are teams interested in signing him pending resolution of the league's wide-ranging investigation.
