Antonio Brown has been let go from his third NFL team this year. The New England Patriots cut their troubled wide receiver loose on Friday after he sent group text messages to his latest accuser.

The Patriots had had enough, according to NFL.com.

"The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time," the Patriots said in a statement, according to NFL.com.

Brown, 31, was accused of causing a commotion on his last NFL team - the Oakland Raiders - because he wanted to sign with the Patriots.

Brown played one game in a Patriots uniform, despite allegations of sexual misconduct made by his former personal trainer.

Brown's second accuser, who is unnamed, complained that he sent her harassing text messages after she went public with her story.

Brown hired the woman to paint his portrait for a mural at his home in 2017 after meeting her at a charity softball game in Pittsburgh.

While she worked on the painting in his home, Brown allegedly emerged from the bathroom holding a cloth over his genitals.

The woman's story was published by the Sporting News.

The woman provided the text messages to Sports Illustrated that show texts sent from a phone number once used by Brown. He included her, his attorney and others on a group chat, calling her a "broke girl" and urging his associates to investigate her.

"Really sad you would make up bull s—t story to the world thought u had more integrity n respect for yourself must be really hard times for to make up some stuff for money super sad,” reads one of the texts reads, according to Sports Illustrated.

The texter included photos of the artist's kids. The message urged "ig Eric" on the group chat to "look up her background."

Brown was let go after the accuser's lawyer, Lisa Banks, sent a letter to the NFL, complaining about the text messages. Banks called the texts "intimidating and threatening to our client, in violation of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy."

After he was released by the Patriots on Friday, Brown took to Twitter.com and Instagram.com to post an image featuring a Nipsey Hussle quote:

"Sometimes people try to destroy you precisely because they recognize your power; Not because they don't see it, but because they see it and they don't want it to exist."

He caught a TD pass and 4 passes for 56 yards in his only NFL game this year.

Antonio Brown scored his first touchdown in a Patriots uniform on Sunday. But his life off the field continues to spiral out of control.

A second woman has accused the star wide receiver of misconduct, according to Sports Illustrated.

Brown was initially accused of misconduct by a woman he knew from college.

Britney Taylor, Brown's former personal trainer, filed a federal lawsuit, accusing the All-Pro wide receiver of raping her on multiple occasions.

Brown vigorously denied the allegations. Then a second accuser came forward.

The woman, who spoke to SI on condition of anonymity, said Brown exposed himself to her when he asked her to come to his house to paint his portrait after they met at a charity softball game in Pittsburgh.

The woman was auctioning off a portrait she'd painted of Brown to benefit the National Youth Foundation, which promotes inclusion and gender equality.

Brown reportedly loved the portrait so much he offered her $700 - more than the $450 winning bid price.

He asked her to come to his home to paint his portrait, and she agreed.

She said after she arrived at his home, Brown emerged from the bathroom wearing nothing but a cloth covering his genitals.

"He was flirty with me but I paid him no mind because I was there on business, plus, I had already seen him with multiple girls in the short time I was with him," the woman said. "I was about 40 percent done on the second day, and I'm on my knees painting the bottom, and he walks up to me butt a** naked, with a hand cloth covering his (penis) and starts having a conversation with me."

She added: "Unfortunately, I've been tried (by men) a lot of times, so I just kept my cool and kept painting. After that, it all ended abruptly."

She said Brown left for Miami the next day and she never heard from him or his assistants again.

She was paid $2,000 for the parts of the mural that she painted, but the foundation wasn't paid the $700 for the painting.

The woman said she was unbothered at the time and she opted not to press charges.

Sports journalist Stephen A. Smith didn't bite his tongue while discussing NFL Diva Antonio Brown on ESPN on Monday.

When asked what he makes of Brown joining the New England Patriots, Smith responded, "What I make of it is that he's a disgrace. There's no way to slice that. I can't excuse the kind of behavior that he has exhibited. It's absolutely positively embarrassing."

Smith went on to say Brown should be ashamed of himself and his family and friends should be ashamed of him.

"Nobody should condone this kind of behavior," he added. "Because when you look at it, you can talk about whether it was orchestrated or not or whatever, it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever."

Brown, 31, reportedly forced his way out of the Pittsburgh Steelers organization only to be picked up by the Oakland Raiders.

While still in training camp, Brown threw one diva tantrum after another until the Raiders showed him the door on Saturday.

According to published reports, Brown's exit from the Raiders was orchestrated so he could sign with the Patriots for a one-year deal worth $15 million. That's $15 million less than he would have earned if he'd behaved himself with the Raiders.

Superstar wide receiver Antonio "AB" Brown never played a down for the Oakland Raiders after they acquired him in an offseason trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Brown's attention-seeking behavior during the offseason landed him in hot water with his coaches and divided his teammates.

He was back at the Raiders team facility on Friday, Sept. 6, apologizing to his coaches and teammates after a series of distracting antics in the offseason.

Brown had good reason to apologize: he was on the verge of a suspension and his $20 million per year contract was in jeopardy.

His many distractions included threatening to retire because he wanted to wear his old helmet, which the league deemed a safety hazard.

Then on Friday, Brown posted a bizarre video of a phone conversation he had with head coach Jon Gruden, in which he complained that everyone portrayed him as the bad guy.

But the last straw was a report that he called Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock a "cracker" during a verbal altercation in the locker room Wednesday.

Brown later told Dianna Russini of ESPN he would "never use that word."

On Saturday, the Raiders decided to cut its losses and released the troublesome 31-year-old wide receiver from his contract.

Brown became a free agent at 4:01 p.m. Within hours, the New England Patriots and Brown had agreed to a one-year contract worth $15 million.

The Internet's reaction to the news of Brown's signing was joy from Patriots' fans and outrage from everyone else. Some of his former Raiders teammates reportedly said they were glad he was gone.

The NY Post published a scathing rebuke of the Patriots for giving Brown another job. The Post said the Patriots "deserve hell" for signing the superstar.

"Shame on the Patriots. They should get what they deserve with Brown, which at the very least is a collective season-long migraine headache, but at the worst a team torn apart by the nonsensical distractions Brown brings with him."

And one commenter on NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk wrote:

"What a joke!!! Any cost to try to 'just win baby' He should be suspended for the racial slur period..end of discussion!! Over end of it!!"

The Patriots is Brown's 3rd team in six months. Brown will suit up for the Patriots game on Sunday against his former team the Steelers.

The New England Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in Super Bowl 49 on Sunday. Only one play stood between the favored Seahawks and their destiny as back-to-back Super Bowl champs. Then something strange happened; something that has never happened before in the annals of Super Bowl history when a team is on the 1-yard line with the best running back in the NFL in their backfield. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw an interception instead of handing the ball off to Marshawn Lynch.

Read the Tweets after the break and weep if you're a Seahawks fan.
