Brown has been learning the offense and catching passes from Patriots backup quarterback Jarrett Stidham. Rapoport notes the Patriots want to get him involved early and he is a real part of this week’s game plan against the Miami Dolphins. In other words, the Pats plan to feed him.
While Brown will make his Patriots debut on Sunday, the NFL is scheduled to meet with Britney Taylor, who accused the star wide-out of rape in a civil lawsuit, on Monday. The league wants to ramp up the investigation as quickly as possible, given the fact there are games each week.
The Patriots, like the NFL, were blindsided by the allegations against Brown and Rapoport reports had owner Robert Kraft or the team knew, he would not have signed off on the signing.
