Antonio Brown might not be retired after all, and he wants the NFL investigations into him to end.

Brown recently announced that he was stepping away from football, and everyone took that as a sign the circus was finally ending. Well, that was foolish on our part. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Brown wants the NFL to wrap up the investigation into him so that he can sign with a team. The former Steelers receiver has been accused of sexual misconduct and faced charges in Florida stemming from an incident with a moving truck driver. Both could result in potential suspensions if he signed with a team.

The disgraced wide receiver wrote the following in part on Instagram late Wednesday night:

The fact that you refuse to provide a deadline and the reason for the fact you won’t resolve your investigations is completely unacceptable. I demand you provide me clarity on this situation immediately if you really care about my wellbeing. My legal team continues to ask and you provide no answers. How is it that the league can just drag it’s feet on any investigation it chooses on players and we just have to sit there in limbo? Need an update so I can talk to these teams properly, they’re waiting on you @nfl let’s get this thing moving!

@nfl I have complied with each and every ask of your investigations throughout the past 11 months. You have had access to all of my phones, you know what the deal is in each and every situation that the media has distorted. I have been seeing the therapist you asked me to, I have worked on all aspects of my life this past year and have become a better man because of it. The fact that you refuse to provide a deadline and the reason for the fact you won’t resolve your investigations is completely unacceptable. I demand you provide me clarity on this situation immediately if you really care about my wellbeing. My legal team continues to ask and you provide no answers. How is it that the league can just drag it’s feet on any investigation it chooses on players and we just have to sit there in limbo? Need an update so I can talk to these teams properly, they’re waiting on you @nfl let’s get this thing moving! We’ve got history to make!! #Himmothy

And around and around we go, folks! The circus never ends with Antonio Brown. One moment, he’s done playing football. A couple days later and he’s out here demanding that the NFL finish the investigations into him so that he can play again.

It’s almost like this dude has no idea what he wants to do other than get attention, which he’s great at.

Will the NFL comply with his demands? I doubt it. Roger Goodell probably doesn’t give a damn what Antonio Brown wants.

Why would he? He’s busy running the most important pro league on the planet.

We’ll see what happens, but nobody should be shocked that this circus isn’t over.
