Antonio Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, “conditionally terminated” his relationship with the free-agent wide receiver on Thursday until Brown “gets help,” according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Rosenhaus would like to work with Brown in the future, reports Schefter, but will not do so until the embattled wide receiver seeks counsel.

The news of Rosenhaus, one of the NFL’s biggest agents, ending his relationship with Brown comes on the heels of an incident with the Hollywood Police Department earlier this week when the 31-year-old live streamed the department’s response to a domestic incident at Brown’s home in Florida on social media. The video caught Brown insulting officers, leading the department to reportedly cut previous ties with Brown.

Brown has been a free agent since being released by the New England Patriots on Sept. 20 after allegations of sexual assault were made in a civil lawsuit by former trainer Britney Taylor. He was with the Patriots for just 11 days, playing in one game.

The Patriots agreed to a deal with Brown on Sept. 7, the same day he was released by the Oakland Raiders after off-season drama forced the team to cut ties just months after acquiring Brown in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The former All-Pro has met with NFL officials in the time since his release from New England and he worked out for the New Orleans Saints in December.
