Antonio Brown To Be Suspended By Raiders

Billy Woods | September 6th, 2019

Shortly after returning to the practice field following a helmet dispute, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown will be suspended by the team after a heated argument with general manager Mike Mayock.

According to multiple reports on the scene, Brown came onto the practice field and was bragging about the helmet dispute he caused and the amount of total guaranteed money on his contract. Once Brown was approached by Mayock, the two had to be separated following an exchange of words.

Brown told Mayock that he would hit him in the face and then punted a football, telling Mayock to fine him for the action. Brown was referring to the recent $54 thousand fine the Raiders slapped on him earlier in the week for failing to report to multiple practices and walk-throughs. The disgruntled Brown then took to social media to post about the fine and voice his frustrations with the general public, stating that the Raiders organization was against him and wanted to see him fail. Normally you have to pay double for this level of entertainment.

After the incident and news of the pending suspension, Brown proceeded to unfollow quarterback Derek Carr and the Raiders on social media platforms. The past month of Brown’s antics are puzzling, especially considering his appearance on The Shop, an unscripted talk-show format for athletes and other celebrities.

During that appearance, Brown voiced his frustrations with the Pittsburgh Steelers organizations and how he doesn’t have an ego and the only aspect he’s focused on is winning. With his recent acts of childish antics, the whole statement he made on The Shop is a freezing cold take in-of-itself.

One of the key reasons Brown forced his way out of Pittsburgh was the lack of guaranteed money offered to him by the Steelers. Once Brown was traded to the Raiders, his new contract extension gifted him $30 million in guarantees. Because of the pending suspension, Brown runs the risk of the Raiders legally being capable of voiding the guarantees altogether. It wouldn’t be too premature to think of trade scenarios for the Raiders to push Brown out of Oakland, and not include him in the move to Las Vegas.
