Trouble Keeps Following Antonio Brown, This Time a $2.4M Lawsuit

Antonio Brown is facing yet another civil lawsuit — this time from a sports marketing company. KCB Marketing is suing the 32-year-old receiver for failing to pay commission on “multiple marketing deals.” The partnership between Brown and KCB Marketing began in July of 2017, and the allegations of nonpayment date back to 2018.

Will the headache ever end with Antonio Brown? Of course it won’t.

“In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Broward County, the company, KCB Marketing, said it worked with Brown for several years to help him secure marketing deals,” the Tampa Bay Times’ Matt Baker wrote. “They signed an agreement in July 2017 to continue working together and to resolve Brown’s previously existing, undisclosed outstanding balance for commission.”

Now KCB Marketing seeks $100,000 in damages. Chances are that the Buccaneers didn’t know this was coming before they gave him a one-year, $3.075M extension, but there is always this risk with him. Any team willing to give Antonio Brown guaranteed money is really asking for it.

The good news here is that AB won’t face suspension, regardless of how this turns out. If you didn’t kill or maim somebody, then you’re good to go. Just don’t smoke any weed.

  1. Wow. I do not understand how a business (NFL, Tampa Bay) would want to be associated with such a train wreck of a human being. AB is a great receiver but past his physical prime. And he obviously has mental issues. How could a billion+ dollar business not understand that there is no way a player could catch enough passes or score enough points to justify the constant negative publicity he generates?

  2. With Clay Travis taking on more duties with Fox, I think Gary Sheffield JR should fill Clay’s spot at OutKick . Admit I don’t know the the nuts and bolts of making that happen or even possible I just know I enjoy his writing style and perspectives.
