The NFL is set to move forward in their investigation of Antonio Brown by finally interviewing the free agent wide receiver about multiple allegations of sexual assault. The interview is expected to happen sometime next week, although a date has not been finalized, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport.

Brown is under investigation for what started as one allegation of sexual assault, but has grown into a broader investigation. The New England Patriots released him shortly after much of this came to public light, although their knowledge of it prior to the public revelations is not entirely clear.

If you’re still wondering what to do with Antonio Brown in fantasy football, you should probably drop him. Once the investigation is complete, the league will decide whether or not to discipline him. If he is not disciplined, he would likely sign somewhere in fairly short order. The NFL is inconsistent in its approach to allegations of sexual assault, but it seems likely he will face a suspension before all is said and done. In the meantime, he remains unsigned.
