Professional football super-agent Drew Rosenhaus has seen enough and made it clear that Antonio Brown, a client he has stuck with throughout everything the talented-but-troubled wideout has done over the last year plus, needs help.

So much so that Rosenhaus has 'conditionally terminated' his relationship with Brown until the 31-year-old wideout goes into counseling, and essentially suggest that if he doesn't want to get it and get himself back on track, then Brown is going to need to find himself a new agent to help him back on his (frozen) feet in the NFL.

The final straw for Rosenhaus certainly had to come with this week's craziness that saw Brown go live on Instagram during a domestic disturbance at his Florida home, and with Brown insulting the officers (and pretty much anybody within shouting distance) throughout the profanity-laced tirade. The video (featured on TMZ), which did nothing to help Brown's image as a straight-up nightmare to deal with, also featured Brown's kids in the background.

Being associated with Brown hasn't exactly been easy before this incident, either, as Brown has recently delved into an apparent music career, and has entertained the idea of a boxing match with YouTube star Logan Paul.

Brown, who played in just one NFL game (and lasted 11 days with the Patriots in total), is still facing legal trouble for accusations of multiple sexual assault incidents with former trainer and college friend Britney Taylor.

The National Football League has yet to conclude their own investigation of those allegations, but it's believed that Brown would be moved to the commissioner's exempt list should any team sign Brown.

But without an agent, and with no signs of Brown changing his ways, that seems highly unlikely.
