Antonio Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus says his client is “looking forward to his next opportunity in the NFL” amid the league’s investigation into rape and sexual assault allegations filed against the 31-year-old wide receiver.

Brown has been released by two teams this season, first by the Oakland Raiders on Sept. 7 and then by the Patriots Friday afternoon.

“It’s unfortunate things didn’t work out with the Patriots,” Rosenhaus tweeted Friday. “But Antonio is healthy and is looking forward to his next opportunity in the NFL. He wants to play the game he loves and he hopes to play for another team soon.”

Rosenhaus, who was also the agent for retired Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, has been vocal in his defense of Brown, recently calling the accusations against his client “a money grab.” Rosenhaus expressed confidence last week that Brown’s name would be cleared.

Although Brown is currently not on a 53-man roster, the NFL confirmed to the Globe Friday that its investigation into the accusations against him will continue.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter said on WEEI Friday that he does not expect Brown to suit up for another NFL team this season.
