The NFL completed a lengthy interview Monday with Britney Taylor, a former trainer of receiver Antonio Brown who filed a civil lawsuit in Florida last week alleging that he sexually assaulted her on three occasions between 2017 and 2018.
A league source said the interview was the first step of what will be a long investigation into the sexual assault allegations against the new Patriots wide receiver.
Brown has denied the allegations made in the lawsuit.
