I think we may have found out why Antonio Brown went off on Sunday morning.
Just hours before games were set to start, the free agent wide receiver took to Twitter and announced he was done playing in the NFL and it had to do with owners doing away with deals anytime they wanted.
He then took a shot at Robert Kraft.
It seems that if Brown had found out he wasn’t getting the $10M guaranteed he signed for with the Patriots, because ESPN’s Chris Mortensen dropped the news that Brown was filing a grievance to get that money.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter also added this:
“After Antonio Brown’s latest Twitter tirade this morning, one NFL source texted: “Kraft never writing that check, no matter what the ruling is now.”
The receiver is clearly frustrated by the $40 million in guarantees voided by the Raiders and Patriots so far this year following his exit from each team.
Brown lasted just 11 days in New England after a tumultuous time with the Raiders that never saw him play a game.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
