And it’s come to this.
Brown’s whirlwind tenure with the Raiders took up much of the offseason, but ramped up over the last week in dizzying fashion and ultimately concluded Saturday with the star talent’s fall from the team’s roster.
“Told me do not come in Thursday,” Brown told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. “Bad my name. Then come work, give two papers after the press conference. No guaranteed no way.”
Brown, as he is not subject to waivers, is now a free agent who can sign with any team.
“Now that Antonio is a free agent, we are focused on the future and I will immediately work on signing him to a new team,” Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus told Rapoport. “Antonio is looking forward to a new beginning.”
