BREAKING: Antonio Brown Tells Raiders To ‘Release Me’ & They Officially Do….

The Antonio Brown saga has taken weird turns every fifteen minutes. From posting team official documents on IG, fights his GM, apologizing, and now asking to be released, the news never stops. After the Oakland Raiders decided to take away his guarantees and pay Brown weekly, he decided there is no way he will play for the Raiders.

The Raiders have, per NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero, sent multiple letters to Brown, with one informing him he has been fined more than $200,000 and the other informing him that if he is released he will not be eligible for termination pay. Those letters set AB off, obviously, and caused him to demand his release on social media.

Now, this looks like it will ultimately spell the end to Brown’s short, but absolutely bonkers tenure with the Raiders. After driving his way out of Pittsburgh, Oakland acquired his services (antics?) for 2019 third and fifth round picks. He then negotiated a new deal that was set to pay him $50.13 million over the next three years with $30.13 million guaranteed. Of course, with this latest circus act, that money will likely never see Brown’s pocket.
