Jon Gruden on Antonio Brown Lawsuit: ‘You Can Call His Employer'

Antonio Brown is no longer Jon Gruden's problem.

Still, the Oakland Raiders head coach was faced with questions on Wednesday about the sexual assault and rape allegations against the star wide receiver.

Gruden responded by telling reporters he "isn't aware of anything" relating to the lawsuit and to "call Brown's employer" (a.k.a. the Patriots) if they have further questions about the situation, per Josh Schrock of NBC Sports Bay Area.

Unfortunately for the reporters in Oakland, they wouldn't get many answers by calling Bill Belichick either. The Patriots head coach refused to speak on the allegations against Brown during his contentious press conference on Wednesday. His quarterback Tom Brady shut down all questions related to the lawsuit as well.

Despite being the subject of controversy, Brown was a participant in Wednesday's practice donning a temporary No. 1 jersey.

The NFL reportedly is seriously considering adding Brown to the commissioner's exempt list, which means the 31-year-old would not be able to attend practice or games but can attend meetings and be at the team's facility.

As for what's next for Brown on the legal side, Dean of Massachusetts School of Law Michael Coyne explained where things could go from here on "Boston Sports Tonight."
