This is the first accuser as another has emerged.
As for Taylor, she accused Brown of sexual assault and rape. The two parties had been engaged in settlement talks for months, but “agreed their communication would remain confidential” until the filing of Taylor’s lawsuit. This is how neither the Raiders, nor the Patriots knew of the allegations. By all accounts, the NFL was also unaware.
Brown will continue to play for the Patriots until the NFL intervenes and while it wasn’t done last week, there is a risk he is placed on the commissioner’s exempt list.
Brown made his debut for the Patriots on Sunday in Week 2 against the Dolphins. He was targeted eight times and hauled in four receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown. He rushed one time for five yards.
