New England Patriots the Mastermind behind Antonio Brown Released from the Raiders


Wide receiver Antonio Brown signed with the New England Patriots Saturday, hours after he was cut by the Oakland Raiders before ever playing a NFL game for the group.

Brown published a photoshop on social media of himself in a Patriots jersey with the hashtags #godsplan and #rewritestory.

The finalizing brought an official end to Brown’s brief yet amusing time with the Raiders, which was marked by confrontations with General Manager Mike Mayock, a wiretapped telephone call with head coach Jon Gruden, a cryotherapy session leading to frostbite and a continuous issue with finding the best helmet after his previous one was phased out by NFL.

Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, confirmed the finalizing to The Associated Press. Brown had actually been scheduled to make up to $50 million from Oakland over the three-year offer. Rather, the Patriots guaranteed him $9 million this season, with the possible to earn as much as $15 million.

Brown had actually requested his release from the Raiders in an Instagram post earlier Saturday, which followed a self-promotional video he launched late Friday that consisted of a recording of a telephone discussion in between himself and Gruden.

After getting word of his release, Brown posted a video in which he screamed “totally free!” to the electronic camera and ran outside while flapping his arms like a bird.

NFL gamers needed to be on an active roster by 4:00 p.m. Saturday to play in this weekend’s season openers, so Brown won’t bet his old group, the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. He’s more than likely to get his first action versus the Miami Dolphins on September 15. The deal reportedly can’t be signed up until Monday.
