Last Sunday (25), through a statement, coaches and football players of the Albany Empire reported that they will file a lawsuit against Antonio Brown, owner of the team. The decision was made after the team realized that the former NFL player withdrew deposits from the paychecks he had made as a form of payment.

According to Albany Empire head coach Moe Leggett, Antonio Brown had complied with his statement that deposits would be in the team’s account after last week’s game against the Orlando Predators. However, a week later, the amount received was gone from each bank.

“I’m frustrated. I tried to give Brown the benefit of the doubt. I tried to work with him. I was trying to be the peacemaker, the mediator to make sure things went smoothly and under the radar. But I can’t do that anymore,” said Moe Leggett, coach of the team.

Recently, the player’s team was expelled from the National Arena League for non-payments that are required by the association in the league’s operating budget and for failing to respond to the charges made. Amidst the expulsion, the team’s next matches were canceled.
