Antonio Brown accepts suspension, won’t appeal

The NFL announced it has suspended free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown eight games for multiple violations of the league's personal-conduct policy.

Brown's suspension stems from his no contest plea to burglary and battery charges from a January incident in Florida, and accusations he sent intimidating texts to a woman who accused the receiver of making past unwanted advances toward her.

Brown's agent Ed Wasielewski later confirmed that Brown has accepted his suspension and won't appeal, and added that Brown "is excited to resume his outstanding football career and is looking forward to playing in the 2020 season," Nick Shook of reports.

Currently a free agent, Brown's suspension takes effect Week 1, regardless of whether he's on a roster. Brown has been without a team since he was released by the New England Patriots after appearing in just one game for them in 2019.
