Should Antonio Brown be placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List?
It doesn't matter whether it is a civil suit or a criminal case, sexual assault isn't what the NFL wants to be associated with. The league already has an image problem and allowing players to continue working when their being accused of such a serious crime isn't a good look.
The NFL needs to bench Brown immediately.
Civil cases carry a different weight than criminal cases and players shouldn't lose out on game checks because they were accused of a crime. The legal process needs to take place before any action is taken. Until then, Brown should be free to play football.
