Oakland, CA — Following yesterday’s post in which Antonio Brown uploaded a picture to his Instagram account displaying a letter from Oakland Raiders general manager Matt Mayock indicating that he is being fined about $54,000 for missing time during training camp, Adam Schefter is reporting that the Raiders are planning to suspend Brown.
The suspension stems from an alledged alltercation between Mayock and Brown in which they got into a heated exchange with Brown threating to “hit him in the face,” according to Ian Rapoport.
11:19 am PST – Mike Mayock gave a 15-second press conference about the ongoing drama with the superstar receiver.
12:35 pm PST – According to independent reporter Dov Kleiman, Antonio Brown has unfollowed the Raiders on Instagram.
1:00 pm PST – More details are coming out about Brown’s and Mayok’s altercation. Reports are that players had to step in and separate the two. This is a serious allegation, as the Raiders could use this to void Brown’s 30 million dollars guaranteed signing money.
