Antonio Brown faces rape accusations by former trainer

New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown is facing rape accusations by a former trainer.

According to a lawsuit filed Tuesday in the Southern District of Florida, Britney Taylor says Brown sexually assaulted her on three occasions.

Brown has denied the allegations. Darren Heitner, a lawyer representing Brown, told The Associated Press his client plans to countersue. Heitner said Brown and Taylor had "a consensual personal relationship."

Taylor also said in the statement she will cooperate with the NFL and any other agencies.

A spokesman for the NFL declined comment, but the Patriots say the league told the team it will launch an investigation.
