And that’s fine ! I have worked my whole life to prove that the system is blind to see talent like mines.Now that everyone sees it, they want me to conform to that same system that has failed me all those years. “I’m not mad at anyone. I’m just asking for the freedom to prove them all wrong.” Release me @raiders #NOMore #theyputblindersonahorseforareason #NoMoreFake
Since March, the Raiders acquired Antonio Brown via trade by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Then, there was the Cryo Chamber foot injury followed by “helmetgate” where he fought the league twice wanting him to wear a different helmet. Yesterday, he posted a video, a well produced video on his YouTube Page him and head coach John Gruden talking and Coach Gruden asking Brown if he really wants to be a Raider. Then in a press conference, he apologized to the fans and teammates for his actions. Now we have this piece of news that he is no longer with the team.
Antonio Brown will be a free agent at 4:00 PM Eastern where he can sign with any team for any amount of money.
