Antonio Brown had a lot of issues with his team Oakland Raiders and the whole training camp passed without him making an appearance on the field. It seems that things were getting back on track after the Raiders issued a final warning and Brown the team in preseason games. But it looks like there is no end to the whole drama as Brown is once again acting strange and posting cryptic messages on Instagram.
The star wideout receiver is apparently not happy with the fines the Oakland team has charged him. Brown was also seen calling out his former teammate Ben Roethlisberger even after he apologized. The latest stint is an indication that Antonio Brown might be leaving the team of Oakland Raiders very soon.
Posting Fines Letter on Instagram
Brown shared a letter from the Raiders GM Mike Mayock on Instagram in which he was fined $13,950 for missing the team walkthrough on August 22. He was also fined $40,000 for missing the training camp on August 18 when Mike Mayock warned him to be all-in or all-out. Brown seems to have taken the whole thing very seriously and feels bad for his team not supporting him.

The Instagram story posted by Brown had a picture of the fines letter with the caption: “When your own team want to hate but there’s not stopping me now devil is a lie. Everyone got to pay this year so we clear.” It simply means that Brown is mad over his team and won’t stay in Oakland for much longer.
Things are not Right with Brown
It seems that the real problem lies in the head of Antonio Brown and things were right with him in the first place. While other players in NFL are focusing on their game or sitting on holdout for a better deal, Brown is the only one who missed games for a helmet. NFL has banned his older unsafe helmet and still, he was stuck on it and even threatened to retire from football over it.
Antonio Brown is 31 years old and considers punishment for not showing up to work “hating.”

The Steelers getting rid of Antonio Brown and landing a draft pick that helped them bring in Devin Bush will go down as one of the greatest moves in franchise history. Mark my words.

Some of the experts claim that Brown has a mental problem and he might have gone insane. There is also a probability that all this is just a drama as Brown and Oakland Raiders are featured on the HBO series Hard Knocks.
