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.
