Antonio Brown To Be Suspended Following Argument With Raiders GM

Antonio Brown Rips Into Oakland Raiders Over $54,000 Worth of Fines Antonio Brown's expected suspension let to Twitter jokes

On Wednesday, Brown posted to Instagram a photo of the fine letter Mayock sent him for missing a walkthrough, which cost Brown $13,950.

The former Steelers receiver is set to be suspended following an exchange with general manager Mike Mayock, according to ESPN.

A day earlier, Brown voiced his displeasure with fines from the team, posting a letter he received from the Raiders on social media.

Brown missed the first part of training camp due to frostbite on his feet from not wearing the proper footwear in a cryotherapy machine, and then held out from practice as he filed two grievances against the National Football League in an attempt of wearing his outdated helmet.

The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport notes that a suspension due to conduct detrimental to the team could result in the loss of guaranteed money for Brown.

Brown left the teams multiple times during camp while sorting out his helmet issue as well as his cryotherapy problem that left his feet looking awful.

The Raiders kick off their season on Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

He left camp for two weeks seeking therapy for the feet, which included laser treatments.

The fines came in the middle of Brown's saga over which helmet he was allowed to use.

The Raiders acquired the seven-time Pro Bowl selection from the Pittsburgh Steelers in a trade in March and later signed him to a three-year, $50.125 million contract.

"It wouldn't surprise me if Antonio Brown ends the season suspended by Gruden and Mayock for violating team rules." . The total also dropped a point to 42.5.
