NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown's agent is denying the rumors that Brown has quit the NFL.

The rumors came after Brown announced via his social media that he would be walking away from the league.

"I have had discussions with a few teams that are very interested in him and want to know about his future and what's going on with the NFL," Drew Rosenhaus said on Warren Sapp's 99 Problems podcast. 

"Hopefully, when that is all resolved, Antonio will be able to continue his Hall of Fame career."

Brown has been accused by at least two women of sexual misconduct, with one of those women alleging forcible rape, and of sending threatening messages to one of the alleged victims after she went public with her #metoo story. Brown denies all the allegations against him.

"It's a very difficult time for him, not playing," Rosenhaus added. "We expected him to be playing against the Jets on Sunday, so it's tough for someone who loves the game not to be playing right now, and the hope is that we will cooperate with the NFL in its investigation and get him back with a team to continue this tremendous career he's had."
