ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported earlier on Saturday that Brown's ask to be release may have come from the Raiders fining AB $215,073.53 Friday night “for conduct detrimental to the team” and that the Raiders voided the $29.125 million worth of guaranteed money in Brown’s deal:
By fining Antonio Brown $215,073.53 last night for conduct detrimental to the team on Sept. 4, the Raiders voided the $29.125 million worth of guaranteed money in his deal, per league sources.This could help explain why Brown is now asking the Raiders for his release.
ESPN’s Tom Darlington received an e-mail from Antonio prior to the news of his release. AB told Darlington that the Raiders “took away my guarantees” and added there’s ““no way I play after they took that and made my contract week to week.”
I just got an email from Antonio Brown. He tells me the team “took away my guarantees.” He added there’s “no way I play after they took that and made my contract week to week.” So at this moment, once again, don’t expect AB to play on Monday Night Football.
