Antonio Brown was accused of sexual assault and rape by his former trainer, Britney Taylor. These allegations were brought up by Taylor in September and they came with a civil lawsuit. In addition to this suit, Brown was hit with an internal investigation from the NFL, which hasn't even concluded yet. There have been very few updates on this case, until yesterday, when it was reported by Daniel Kaplan of The Athletic that Brown's lawyer would actually be withdrawing from the case. The paperwork has been filed in Florida State court which means the request is now official.
It remains to be seen how this case is going to play out. If Brown can't find a new lawyer, it's going to be difficult to represent himself. It's important to note that his lawyer's reasoning for filing a motion to withdraw is unknown. There could be a whole plethora of reasons for why he decided to withdraw although we'll probably never know due to confidentiality.
Meanwhile, Brown is looking to get back into the NFL next season. If he loses the suit, his career could very well be over, especially considering everything that has gone down these past few months.

Kodak Black Reportedly In Good Spirits & Working On New Project In Prison
His lawyer says he’s working on a new project and reading a lot.
It’s looking like Kodak Black is in a much better head space than where he was at a couple weeks ago. If you missed it, the Florida rapper made headlines earlier this month when he said he thought he might die at prison following the “cruel & unethical” treatment he was receiving from the guards. He claimed to have been drugged, beaten and denied food and medical attention among other basic needs, and expressed his fear that he would end up dead if these circumstances continued. Well hopefully things have changed because he is apparently in a better spirit according to his lawyer Bradford Cohen.
Kodak’s lawyer recently visited the Florida rapper and gave fans an update on his Instagram yesterday, saying that his client is in good spirits right now. He says he is reading a lot and working on a new project at the moment as well.
“It was good to see him and he was in good spirits. He is working on new projects and reading. He wants to thank all of you for the support,” Kodak’s lawyer wrote as his caption while sharing the pic from outside the prison (see below).
This report comes just days after learning the release date for Kodak Black. The Florida rapper is scheduled to be released from prison on August 14th, 2022.

Former High School Classmate Says Aaron Hernandez’s Alleged Gay Lover Is Lying
The new Netflix doc Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez explores the complicated sexuality of the late football star-turned killer.
In the doc, Hernandez's high school teammate Dennis SanSoucie speaks on their alleged years-long gay relationship.
A Twitter user who went to Bristol Central Hs with Hernandez and SanSoucie has jumped on Twitter and challenged SanSoucie's credibility.
I’m from Bristol CT AND went to Bristol Central HS and I can tell you Matt Coyne was Aaron Hernandez’s QB not Dennis SanSoucie LOL so this narrative of QB/TE in love doesn’t add up. But I see how powerful the media is and how it controls the minds of the masses. https://t.co/jHxF9N5LCl— FC. (@fcmendez_) January 18, 2020

SanSoucie is far from the first person to suggest Hernandez was secretly gay.
George Leontire, a lawyer on Aaron Hernandez's defense team, spoke on his client's sexuality in a previous documentary.
"Aaron and I talked about his sexuality. This man clearly was gay," Leontire, who is gay, said. "[He] acknowledged it. Acknowledged the immense pain that it caused him. I think that he also came out of a culture that was so negative about gay people that he exhibited some self-hatred."
While Hernandez's his main lawyer Jose Baez didn't specifically question SanSoucie's allegation, he railed against the latest documentary on Instagram:
