The Baltimore Ravens have reportedly not discussed signing Antonio Brown recently despite rumors of interest in the free-agent wideout.

According to Josina Anderson, "Brown has not been earnestly discussed (pending review of his case), nor has there been any recent talks internally."

Mike Silver of NFL Network said Tuesday that the Ravens are "mulling" signing the controversial wide receiver, who will likely be subject to discipline under the league's personal conduct policy.

Brown last played for the New England Patriots in September. He signed with the team Sept. 9, one day before former trainer filed a federal lawsuit against Brown in which she said he sexually assaulted her three times in 2017 and 2018. He played one game with the Pats before the team released him after another woman, who had accused him of sexual misconduct on Sept. 16, said he sent her threatening texts that included pictures of her children following her decision to publicly tell her story.

Brown was charged with felony burglary of a vehicle, misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor criminal mischief in March after allegedly robbing and assaulting a driver for a moving truck company in January. He pleaded no contest to burglary and assault charges this month and was sentenced to two years' probation and 100 hours of community service. The plea deal also called on Brown to complete a 13-week anger management course and undergo a psychological/psychiatric evaluation.

Brown spent his first nine NFL seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers before being traded to the Raiders after a falling out with team management and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. He never played a game with the Raiders after requesting his release following a public spat with general manager Mike Mayock.

Despite playing only one game for the Patriots, Brown remains the NFL's leading receiver over the last seven seasons with 690 receptions. His six consecutive 100-catch seasons are an NFL record.
