The New England Patriots released embattled wide receiver Antonio Brown on Friday, less than two weeks after signing him.

“We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time,” the team said in a statement.

Immediately after the news broke, AB took to twitter with several tweets, one of which included a photo of Nipsey Hussle along with the quote:

“Sometimes people try to destroy you precisely because they recognize your power; Not because they don’t see it, but because they see it and they don’t want it to exist.” 

He later added, “The Marathon Continues,” and proceed to thank the Patriots organization in a series of tweets.
