Here's what happened between Antonio Brown and the Raiders

There are at least six reasons as to why somebody would hate National Football League demigod Tom Brady and the rest of the New England Patriots, but nonetheless it is shocking that somebody despises the reigning champions enough to threaten bloodshed against the team. I really looked forward to coaching him, but it's not going to happen. It's been wild, it's been insane, it's been unexpected. "He's misunderstood by a lot of people but he's a good guy, a great player and I hope he gets what he's looking for". For all his cracks about eschewing technology and "My Face", Belichick knows everything that's going on.

Brown's social media activity made headlines Wednesday morning when he posted a copy of team-issued fines on Instagram - a move that led to a heated argument with general manager Mike Mayock later that day at practice.

How to Antonio Brown end up in Oakland, anyway?

Roethlisberger was all of us when he was asked about Brown landing on the Patriots after the Steelers' 33-3 loss on Sunday night. But when you haven't played with guys, you got to try to do it as quickly as possible and the clock is ticking on us right now. "I mean, I used to watch his highlights in college before games and stuff like that, so I can't wait for him to just get in so I can work with him". Brown will be expected to behave in the same manner that every other Patriot player must act.

Brown is a seven-time Pro Bowl selection and four-time first-team All-Pro. He told reporters that he could walk away from football altogether and wouldn't play unless it was by his rules. Brown was acquired by Oakland in March and he didn't even last long enough to appear in a single game for the silver and black.

So Oakland is out the third- and fifth-round picks it traded to Pittsburgh to acquire Brown, but won't be stuck paying Brown the roughly $30 million it had promised as part of a new contract. Brown had 686 catches and 9,145 yards receiving the past six seasons in Pittsburgh, the best marks ever for a receiver in a six-year span. Still, I don't give Gruden much credit for this, at all.

In July, he reportedly showed up to training camp with frostbite on the bottom of both feet due to a cryotherapy mishap earlier in the month in France. This is always the game plan for this team.
