The roller-coaster offseason for Antonio Brown and the Oakland Raiders is finally over ... although the star wideout posted something of a postscript on it through an Instagram story.

Brown shared a screen shot of a letter from Raiders general manager Mike Mayock that informed Brown he would be fined $13,950 due to an "unexcused" absence from a walk-through on August 22.

"It did not get physical, sources say", NFLN's Ian Rapoport posted on Twitter.

Mayock also warned Brown that should he continue to miss mandatory team activities, the Raiders could impose additional fines and discipline. "When your own team want to hate but there's no stopping me now devil is a lie", he wrote in the caption. "Everyone got to pay this year so we clear".

ESPN reported on Thursday that the Raiders have suspended Brown before he has even played a regular season game for the team.

Brown has been a constant headache for the Raiders since he arrived in Oakland as part of a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers in March.

Brown announced Wednesday he will wear the Xenith Shadow helmet model this season.

That apparently prompted the latest run-in with Mayock and now leaves Brown's status with the team in doubt ahead of Monday night's opener at home against the Denver Broncos.

"He was not allowed to do so and was instead told to come to the stadium to meet with Tomlin prior to kickoff". The incident occurred after Brown took to social media to air out the Raiders, who fined him for unexcused practice absences.
