FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Antonio Brown went on a Twitter rant on his first NFL Sunday without a team, announcing he was done for good with the league that exiled him. Even though, he claimed, it had been more lenient toward others facing allegations of sexual misconduct.

On the morning his most recent team was preparing to play without him, the fleet-footed but fleeting New England receiver said in a tweet: "Will not be playing in the NFL anymore" and took shots at Patriots owner Robert Kraft and longtime Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Kraft was arrested in connection with a prostitution and sexual trafficking sting in a Florida massage parlor and has not been punished; "Different strokes different folks clearly," Brown wrote.

Bridgewater helps Saints win in Seattle
