The bizarre saga of Antonio Brown and the Oakland Raiders has taken another strange twist.
Earlier this week Brown threatened to hit general manager Mike Mayock in the face during a heated argument. The team subsequently fined Brown $215,073.53 for conduct detrimental to the team, according to ESPN.
That fine voided the $29M worth of guaranteed money in his contract.
Brown responded by asking to be released via his Instagram account on Saturday, September 7th. Shortly afterwards, the organization granted the wide receiver his wish.
