Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, tweeted Friday that his client intends to continue his NFL career and "hopes to play for another team soon" following his release by the Patriots.
Brown is free to sign with any team, but it remains to be seen whether he will get another chance in the league.
ESPN's Adam Schefter said Friday that it's likely teams will wait until the NFL has finished its investigation into whether Brown violated the league's personal conduct policy.
On Thursday, a woman who alleged that Brown made an unwanted sexual advance toward her in 2017 said she received "intimidating" texts from the receiver on Wednesday night.
The unnamed artist's lawyer notified the NFL of the texts, and the league is looking into the matter, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
On Monday, the NFL met with Brown's other accuser, Britney Taylor, as it looks into allegations of rape from a federal lawsuit filed last week.
The league announced Friday that it wouldn't be "appropriate" to place Brown on the commissioner's exempt list as long as he's a free agent and the investigation is ongoing.
