FOXBOROUGH -- Antonio Brown met with the New England media for the first time as a member of the Patriots on Thursday.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Brown took only four questions, which lasted just over a minute.

The wide receiver did not address anything on his status with the NFL following a lawsuit accusing him of sexual assault and rape being filed last week. He said he's focused on "ball."

Here's the transcript.

Q: Is everything OK with you and the league, are you in good standing?

Brown: “I am super grateful to be here and play for Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. I got a lot of the offense to learn and catch up, but I am excited and grateful to be here and be part [of] these guys.”

Q: What has it been like working with Tom Brady

Brown: “It’s been a tremendous honor. He’s been here a long time. A lot of details, a lot of work ethic. Great guy to be around and inspires everyone here.”

Q: How has it been getting used to everything with everything else going on in your life?

Brown: “It’s football. I am grateful to play football. Every time you walk in the door here you know to do your best for the team. Every time I walk in here I am make sure I am preparing to give these guys my best.”

Q: What have you heard from the league on your status moving forward?

Brown: “I appreciate that question, I am here to just focus on ball and look forward to getting out there in the home stadium and be home with the team.”
