Patriots Wire’s Henry McKenna explains how players felt after Antonio Brown’s first day at Patriots practice.
USA TODAYAntonio Brown still seems to be getting the hang of the “Patriot Way.”Brown checked in with his Instagram followers on Thursday night during a live video at the TB12 Performance and Recovery Center with Alex Guerrero, Tom Brady’s body coach and business partner.It’s probably not what coach Bill Belichick had in mind for Brown’s first appearance since joining the New England Patriots. Brown has not spoken with the media, instead posting a few things on his Instagram account when he signed with the team on Saturday, just hours after the Oakland Raiders released him. Since then, he has faced allegations of sexual assault and rape in a civil lawsuit filed in Florida on Tuesday. And still, Brown put himself out there on social media.Here’s a look at some of the video, from the Providence Journal’s Mark Daniels. (Daniels’ recording cut off a bit early. We managed to grab an audio recording.

No matter what they say, no matter what they hate, somebody’s still gotta work,” Brown said during the Instagram video. “Call God. In a time of crisis, all I ask is love, dedication and focus. Stay focused. The devil is going to try to bring you down when you get closer to your goals. The key is, don’t let him.”I was thinking about it. All the basketball players in the world, all the soccer players in the world — they get love and embrace. Maybe we need a football U.S.A. team so the world can love us, because all we get is hate.”Brown and his huge public persona have stepped into the most private organization in the NFL (the Patriots). And even while facing civil allegations, Brown doesn’t seem to mind grabbing more attention.AutoplayShow ThumbnailsShow CaptionsLast SlideNext Slide
