Well, here we go again. Antonio Brown was yet to play a single snap for the Oakland Raiders, and the team has already moved on from the talented-yet-troubled wide receiver. It was announced this morning that the Raiders were planning to suspend the All-Pro wideout after an exchange between him and general manager Mike Mayock this week. Now, he has been officially released by the team.
Of course, this was not the first altercation between Brown and the Raiders franchise. First, the offseason started with him missing Training Camp for two different reasons. On one hand, he wore inappropriate footwear before getting into a Cryogenic chamber for therapy, causing a serious injury that kept him off his feet for a few weeks. On the other hand, he created madness when he was not allowed to wear the same football helmet that he’s been using for the duration of his career, due to it not being included on the lengthy list of approved equipment.
Then, he tweeted out a photo of a letter that was sent to him, explaining why he has been fined this offseason and what the repercussions would be if his actions were to continue. Naturally, the front office did not take to kindly to Brown airing out their dirty laundry on social media. As a result, we are where we are today. ESPN’s Adam Schefter even made the claim that Antonio Brown may never suit up for the Raiders after his latest antics, as the organization explores its options and tries to get out of the recent contract that was agreed upon by both parties. Obviously, Schefter was right.
So, where will he end up? There is certainly a market for a playmaker as talented and impactful as AB, but who will be willing to put up with his off-field B.S.? Join us, as we break down the top five teams that could sign Antonio Brown.
