This was just minutes after Taylor, who was once Brown's trainer, filed a lawsuit with the Southern District Court of Florida claiming that Brown sexually assaulted her in three separate nefarious occasions.
Ed Griffith, the public information officer for the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office, said in a statement that "having reviewed our records, we found no prior police investigative contacts regarding these allegations or these individuals".
The league could place Brown on the commissioner's exempt list. The second incident occurred a month later, when Brown allegedly snuck up behind Taylor, masturbated and ejaculated on her back while at Brown's home in Miami, according to the lawsuit. "Miami's a good team - getting ready for them".
Taylor said Brown reached out to her via Facebook in June 2017 and asked the former gymnast for help with improving his strength and flexibility.
Brown's accuser and her her lawyer, meanwhile, will meet with National Football League officials next week, a source with knowledge of the case told CNN.
"We take these allegations very seriously", their statement reads.
From the moment Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus admitted Tuesday that he and Brown were aware that a lawsuit was possible, speculation began about whether the Patriots were aware of the possible suit when they signed him. Taylor then allegedly cut off communications after her request was denied before helping Brown train in 2018 for the upcoming season.
"As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly hard decision", Taylor said. Darren Heitner, a lawyer representing Brown, said his client plans to countersue. Zappala issued a statement clarifying whether officials would be investigating.
Brown was originally traded from Pittsburgh to Oakland in the offseason.
Brown was approached by Taylor in 2017, according to Heitner, about making a $1.6 million investment in a business project.
The sources also declined to speculate on knowledge the Raiders or Steelers might have had before letting Brown go.
