Antonio Brown suspended for 8 games for violating league's personal conduct policy

Antonio Brown suspended for 8 games for violating league's personal conduct policy

Even if Antonio Brown does land with a new team for the 2020 season, it will only be for half the regular season at most. Well, today, that all changed as the National Football League alerted Brown that he would receive and eight-game suspension without pay, according to Adam Schefter. The NFL can extend Brown's suspension depending on what happens in Brown's civil suit, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Brown, who played one game last season for the Patriots before being released, can be signed by any team and would be eligible to participate in all of his club's preseason activities.

So, if a team, such as the Seahawks, wanted to sign him now, they could, and Brown would have the next six weeks to learn the offense and then have to sit out for eight games and then could return later in the season.

The Seahawks have been checking into Brown, but like all National Football League teams, were waiting to see if the National Football League was going to levy a punishment.

Since it came into force, some political parties have disbanded while at least three prominent Beijing critics have fled overseas. But lawyers and activists have said the law's vaguely-worded clauses could be used to silence dissidents and political opponents.

The NFL has come to a decision regarding Antonio Brown. The Raiders obliged and Brown signed on with the Patriots.

The Baltimore Ravens have also been thought to have interest in Brown as quarterback Lamar Jackson publicly said this week he hoped the team would look into signing the receiver. Brown's suspension would take effect as of the final roster reduction on September 5.

In its statement Friday, the league said Brown is still expected to "continue his programofcounseling and treatment", and must cooperate with clinicians.

It was just last week when Brown took to social media to demand that the league conclude their personal conduct investigation.
