The league announced Friday that free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown has received an eight-game suspension without pay for multiple violations of the NFL's personal conduct policy, ESPN reports.

Brown had been the subject of an NFL investigation after a lawsuit filed by his former trainer alleged that she was sexually assaulted by Brown on multiple occasions. Brown also was accused of sexual misconduct at his home by an artist who was working there in 2017.

The wide receiver has said his sexual relationship with the trainer was consensual, and Brown met with the NFL in November as part of the investigation.

In announcing the suspension, the NFL said that Brown was directed to continue counseling and treatment. The league also said that any further violations would likely result in harsher discipline.
