    Antonio Brown and Raiders general manager Mike Mayock got into a heated exchange Wednesday, and the team is now planning to suspend its star wide receiver, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    The confrontation, according to Schefter, stemmed from Brown's Instagram post Wednesday when he displayed a letter from Mayock that detailed about $54,000 in fines for missing time during training camp.

    Will be interesting to see what Beckum does soon to top this.

    Eh, OBJ seems to be enjoying his time with the Browns so far. He bought a Rolls Royce with white, orange and brown colors. Today there was an event reported where he brought a whole Ohio high school football team to the Browns facility to practice with him and gave them all new shoes.

    If I'm not mistaken it's hard (impossible even?) to detect CTE in people whose brains you can't slice up and examine (ie: the living) so there's no way to tell but I bet this guy got hit hard a whole bunch of times in high school and college. He's his own worst enemy and easily as crazy as Chad Ochocinco or T.O. ever was.

    I bet his cheese was knocked clean off his cracker a long time ago.

    Not that you're necessarily wrong here, but CTE or not this guy's legit rotten from the neck up. Former teammate Ryan Clark told his coaches as much in 2012 before Brown had really broken out in the league and repeated the story to the public last year..

    You can put lipstick on a pig all you want but it is still a pig.

    This idiot is the only guy I've ever seen that shows up in Mini Camps for one day to do a photo op and then bounces out without a trace leaving his coach and other new teammates in limbo as to what his purpose is. He'll create controversy and problems once the season starts no question.

    Odell won't be with this franchise more than two years. Book it.

    This is a real thing in the twitter-verse. People speculate that this was the hit that did it. Prior to this hit, folks say dude wasn't anything like he is now.

    Why do people say head trauma to explain an attention hungry clown.

    That's all this is. He made so much money he doesn't know what to do with it, and he got so used to Tomlin and the Steelers babying his tantrums that he lost all sight on how to act like an adult.

    We've seen tons of WR's act like this before. Beckum is just as crazy. Chad Johnson and T.O. were awful. None of them are exactly the same, but they're cut from the same cloth.

    I did not know that. Thanks for the info. The dude is clearly going through life with a problem. Might have even been this.

    That was the dumbest play ever. Then Pacman has to join in the fun. Had the game won and Burfict and Jones couldn't help being punks. How they ever played another down for the Bengals is stunning.

    That was one of the most hilarious things I've ever seen in a game. The Bengals straight up clowned themselves. Funniest part was how Joey Porter even ran out there taunting Pac Man and them and got involved just like he did as a player for the Steelers. That was pure comedy.

    Remember when ESPN and Fox News was pushing all this fake news rhetoric on the Steelers players and coaches?

    Total clown show on these networks. :spit:

    Now this guy has released on his Instagram that he wants to be released. He’s pissed because he was fined and since he was fined 29mil if his guaranteed money is not guaranteed anymore.

    This dude is out there. But he’s been coddled his whole sports life though I bet. NOw he thinks he can get away with it

    Probably coddled and told he was special since high school, and now he can't act like an adult. This is another athlete that we'll hear about in a couple years that's broke and trying to make money somewhere. I wish him the best and hope he can get his head on straight, but it's doubtful.

    Grant him his wish Mayock...release his ass so he can find out how privledged he is to play a game for millions of dollars. He is the epitome of a guy who doesn't deserve the blessing.

    I suspect he is mentally broken. Sane people don't act like he does. All the accolades and coddling just fed that broken part. I expect if he is tossed from the Raiders he won't get another job. Talented, but the problem has been identified twice. Maybe someone will take chance at pennies on the dollar.
