A moving driver is seeking monetary damages from Antonio Brown after being physically and verbally assaulted in January 2020 by the receiver.
A civil lawsuit against Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown was filed last Wednesday night in Broward County, Florida. It is an extension of a lawsuit previously filed by truck driver Anton Tumanov.
Tumanov is seeking just over $30,000 in damages for an incident that quickly escalated due to differences in payment for a move that occurred in January 2020. Brown has already been suspended for eight games for multiple violations of the NFL's personal conduct code, including this case.

LaFleur wants Rodgers back in 'the worst way'
Matt LaFleur had his first post-draft press conference in which he addressed the topic of Aaron Rodgers' estrangement from the team.
"I have nothing to update on that , and obviously we still feel the same way. We want him back in the worst way. I know he knows that, and we'll continue to work on it every day."
The Packers HC also addressed the arrival of veteran QB, Blake Bortles, and his relationship with Offensive Coordinator, Nathaniel Hackett.
"He led his team to the American Conference Finals in 2017, and I mean they came very close to taking down the New England Patriots. He's got a lot of experience, and that's something you should never take lightly."
When asked if he plans to field Jordan Love as a starter in the event he can't persuade Rodgers to return the coach was blunt.
"I'm not going to make assumptions about anything at this point. We're just going to take it day by day, but every guy on our roster has to have the mentality that he's our right guy. If not, when you're given the opportunity, you won't be ready for it. So that's how we target every player on this team."
Love cannot participate in this week's rookie camp, he will be able to join on Monday thanks to a rule that allows second-year passers to join rookie camp as long as they played less than 25% of snaps in the previous season.
The 49ers will be the team that will travel the most miles in 2021.
According to a study by ESPN analytics, the San Francisco 49ers will have to travel nearly 8,000 miles more than their rivals in 2021. San Francisco will travel more than 28,000 miles this season, more than any team in the NFL.
Kyle Shanahan's team is at this curious "disadvantage" because it is located east of the California Bay Area. The trips they will have to face non-divisional opponents in 2021 are; Detroit, Philadelphia, Chicago, Jacksonville, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Green Bay, Minnesota, Indianapolis and Houston.
The 49ers have reportedly already signed 10 rookies, including Mexican offensive lineman Alfredo Gutierrez.
Detroit Looking to Trade Offensive Tackle Tyrell Crosby
The arrival of Penei Sewell, taken with the No. 7 overall pick last draft, is already prompting a redraft on the Lions' offensive line. OT Tyrell Crosby, reportedly in plans to be traded to the team, a player who started 12 games last season.
With Sewell as the starting right tackle, the continuity of the player taken in the fifth round of the 2018 draft becomes more complicated at Michigan. Despite being a player who has always been seen as a backup in Detroit, he has also been seen as a very reliable one, in 2020 he was a starter due to Halapoulivaati Vaitai's low level of play.
In addition to Crosby, the Lions have backup tackles Dan Skipper and Matt Nelson, both of whom have little NFL playing experience.
