The New England Patriots have released embattled wide receiver Antonio Brown.

The Patriots, which signed Brown only 11 days ago after he was released by the Oakland Raiders, said in a statement they've dropped Brown.    


The franchise says it feels that it's best to move in a different direction at this time.

The star wide receiver has been accused of sexual assault by two women. Brown has denied the allegations.

Brown acknowledged his release, tweeting "Thanks for the opportunity" to the Patriots. He included photos from his one game with the team.
