Raiders WR Antonio Brown blasts team for fines due to missed practices

Raiders WR Antonio Brown blasts team for fines due to missed practices”

The Oakland Raiders have fined Antonio Brown $53,950 prior to the former Pittsburgh Steelers star taking the field for them.

The seven-time Pro Bowl selection took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a photo of a letter from Raiders general manager Mike Mayock informing Brown of a fine due to a missed walkthrough.

Brown tagged the Raiders in his post along with the caption "when your own team want to hate but there's no stopping me now devil is a lie".

The letter also mentions that the team previously had fined Brown $40,000 for missing camp on August 18 - the day the GM issued his ultimatum to Brown, saying, "It's time for him to be all-in or all-out, OK?" The absence, which was unexcused according to the letter, comes with a cost of $13,950 to Brown. As we all knew heading in to the summer, Brown in Oakland is can't-miss drama, and it's only getting better. The receiver started the Raiders' training camp on the non-football injury list.

Brown was also upset with the league's not allowing him to wear his Schutt Air Advantage helmet, the only helmet he has worn in his NFL career, because it is older than 10 years, thus no longer certified. He filed two grievances against the league as he hoped to avoid wearing a new model, but he lost both hearings.

Despite the distractions, Raiders coach Jon Gruden has insisted that Brown is "all in and ready to go".
