"I'm super grateful to be here", Brown said, according to the Boston Globe.
"I'm just here to focus on ball", Brown said in an interview that lasted just one minute. "There are some things we are looking into but I'm not going to have any comment on the off-the-field situations". Brown is also facing accusations of rape and sexual assault from a former trainer in three separate incidents, as well as numerous allegations of unpaid wages to former clients.
The woman claiming to receive intimidating texts from Brown is the one who anonymously accused the receiver of advancing on her while he was naked with a towel barely covering his penis in 2017.
The attorneys released a letter from Patriots officials ordering Brown to cease all communications with the artist.
He was then asked if any player could become too much of a distraction, and he stormed off. He had four catches and a touchdown in a blowout win over the Dolphins in Week 2, and is slated to start against the Jets on Sunday.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media confirmed that the report initially provided by Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated that Brown sent threatening, aggressive texts to the second woman, was corroborated by the NFL's investigatory team.
The Antonio Brown saga continues as allegations against him continue to come to fruition. "Anything on football, I'd be happy to answer".
Drew Rosenhaus, Brown's agent released a statement on Twitter Friday, saying "he wants to play the game he loves and he hopes to play for another team soon". "Brown, nor will she, about seeking money to compensate her for his sexual misconduct, contrary to his allegations in the text messages".
When asked for more details on the nature or duration of the partnership between the company and the athlete, Nike said "We don't get into specifics of sports marketing relationships".
Brown originally signed a one-year deal with the Patriots back on September 8 following his release from the Oakland Raiders, who acquired him in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers earlier this past offseason.
