Listen: Antonio Brown, released by Raiders, reportedly signs with Patriots
"The hundredth year of the anniversary of the NFL is this Antonio pound saga well I mean it's it's insane it's crazy and you know everything that played out it's almost the case where listen you know I get to the point we'll get to the patriot idea of it the raiders were left with no choice now they were left with no choice and you could even make the argument and before he went on Instagram early on Saturday morning and basically said release me after the you know two hundred plus thousand dollar fine which made his money not guaranteed here moving forward in that Oakland Raiders deal that they re worked after they acquired him from the Pittsburgh Steelers David that even before that when he say what he said you know with racial undertones to Mike may I could practice in in that once you do that you overstep your bounds as a player win in terms of you know not understanding the leadership of mac is general manager that he should be gone then but then you had after that you know the teary eyed apology that he had to the team right thirty million dollars correctly right there's no doubt about it and then he gets hit with a fine once again we're grew to make the announcement before that that he'll be playing right and they'll be suiting up and playing against the Denver Broncos then you get the fine once again then he goes crazy on Saturday morning on Instagram selling the raiders to release some and they end up really so it was a very interesting forty eight hours for the Oakland Raiders to say the least and you know first and foremost the one thing that you and. so when it comes to the NFL and when it comes to the owners the head coach and the GM the one thing that they're always looking for with leverages is how to take away your money and he came from that complete leverage I've also heard fancy well you can't you can't find star players they don't get fined they get fined each and every week if their wait for meeting if they mistreatment well I still watch go berserk it's just not something that the team put out to the media it's something that's handled in house right so if people think that star players don't get fined that's a ridiculous statement because it happens each and every week out of the NFL season and when you look at the structure of everything that happened on in experience GM if you don't think Jon Gruden knew exactly what was going on and was there a point good cop bad cop I don't know what you're thinking about Jon Gruden has to do that for the face of being the head coach because he doesn't want the blurred lines of the GM and head coach but he was a hundred percent on board with what Mike may I was doing that's why he hired him so that he basically can control the entire situation I grew the David but here's the point I have is the one I get rid of them initially you know after he gets into the altercation with may Oct the verbal one people say downplay whether how physical just was but just when you have that go down a practice and you have Antonio brown screaming what he did when I repeat it Mike mac on the practice field why not just get rid of a man don't you at that point when you decide to bring him back are you sending the wrong message to the rest of the guys on that team because you know a cures everything vitamin W. winning that's what cures everything and when you look at him with that hundred million dollar contract this team going on the road to play a division rival in Denver they're a better football team with him out on the field that being said what else is the big thing that they're looking at they're looking at next year moving to Las Vegas and having a big splash to bring that fan base and to bring a drawing crowds to the Los Vegas readers to you look at the overall landscape of things. Jon Gruden gave him as many opportunities as possible because let's face it that's what had photo gallery supreme GM's and owners to win Taylor puts production out on the field right now and they were left with no other choice and then the conspiracy theorists are that brown and drew Rosenhaus right his agent Bailey forced their way out of Oakland left them with no choice to do this and then he ends up with the New England Patriots Rosen house in the pats Abella check of a very good relationship he signs up there joins the litany of guys who've had trouble careers before going to notice anyone that's according to the in areas Tom price range of all fourth fifth. that's exactly I Randy moss Corey Dillon guys that had issues with other organizations went to New England I basically bought it and now it's a one year deal ten million guaranteed five million in incentives we can earn fifteen million dollars he's not could be playing against the Steelers later on tonight as the patriots and Steelers do battle but you will look at the very fact of now he ends up with the patriots and now you look at this patriot team with adult men brown and Gordon yeah I know no grown cow ski but you look at it and for Antonio brown everything that transpired in Oakland I would probably bet anything that none of that will transpire up in New England no because there's veteran leadership in the locker room you think about the last chance he's got without a doubt if you think about things that took place in our locker room when you have a Michael street him when you have an Antonio Pierce we have myself Chris me and other guys that our leaders that we don't let the stuff take place in the locker room and go out into the public figure who's gonna stop anything he did in Oakland there's not a single player on there that has a resume like him that could put him in his place now go into New England it is a completely different story because they've won without him and they don't need him to win but let me ask you this question now I mean sometimes guys just go author yeah I mean go off the tracks yeah know he's definitely offer the tried your office right there's no doubt about it but I my point being is that you know I don't know if even that was great veteran leadership on Oakland if they were gonna pull a massage I mean nobody could do no I don't know what what's even if there was to prevent exactly what transpired and what happened and how hay wire it got whether it be the feet the helmet how they support him through all of that and then the very fact of he they handed him down you know basically a fifty thousand dollar fine he goes haywire has the apology then after screaming at back then he gets find out once again they're going after his money and rightfully so pure the Oakland Raiders because what would lead you to believe the behavior is going to change but I'll tell you it doesn't get a say I don't get a sense even if that veteran leadership was there in Oakland that that also was going to. change with the way that he acted out there in Oakland not it's not a winning program like you love Pittsburgh yeah and the way that we love Pittsburgh and you didn't hear about all this nonsense I'm sure was all gone behind the house down in my home when was a cover up of the Steelers recovered as team week seventeen when the plane for the playoffs no doubt about it but I would say this is that the Steelers were smile and and the very fact is is that they don't have to deal with the headache and then all of a sudden the headache bloomed out an open window and I heard everything that tree outside with Antonio brown and and it's all sort of go along with that you know the one thing that you always said as an NFL player that was like to joke around the NFL players go to the raiders to die that's where their career ends and obviously with him you knew that he didn't want to be a part of training camp hence the whole helmet situation the whole foot thing the footings wanting them with the helmet you weren't even practicing anyway so it's not just to disappear from practice well you're doing the standard to ride the bike or doing whatever for your feet at that time that's once again him believing that he is more important and has a different set of standards than the rest of the football team so there wasn't a player nor do I think Oakland could have ever done that now he falls into a situation where it's going to the New England Patriots and like I said it's completely different because they won without you and they can win without you so the standard that the put on it and the patriot way is do nothing outside yourself to cause controversy for this lock permit do bulletin board material we just talked about the examples that worked brand I think they're different points in their career but look how bad it was for channel chill Cinco because it showed that he was in a dynamic player he was the Purcell St precise route runner and he couldn't pick up with the language and we're Tom Brady wants you to be everybody knows that Tom Brady is a quarterback he demands you to do things to perfection and if you don't break your route off the ten yards and break it off at night you're not going to be on the football field that's the difference were Antonio brown is different the channel two signal and fits more into the mold of like Randy moss because they work that well it of players are more. technicians that nowadays is just to biting by the rules and just make sure you stay clear of all this yeah and I think he will be is I'll be ours you David if he blows up in New England we'll be all rights will be god and not just that I don't know how many teams that will be clamoring to bring a man at the kind of money that he's looking to make music Tony brown does want to sign a one year deal worth two million dollars he's looking for the kind of contract that he got in essence in a performance based contracts but he is getting ten million dollars guaranteed you want to do the re work from the Steelers the Oakland Raiders it did now we lost a lot of money yeah terms of Garin a lot on it a lot of money but he has the opportunity to make it back and if he is able to change the discourse the conversation around him and have a great year and buy into that patriot system and he minds is pleasing cues and there are no way should be as you know this he is going to be under the magnifying glass and they're gonna be people Diggin it see what's going on behind the scenes if he's able turn all that around then everything will be fine for Antonio brown then okay contract next no doubt about it but if he doesn't I don't know how many teams will be clamoring to bring and then all of the thirty two year old receiver this is his last opportunity let's face it if you go to New England and you box this for them taking the chance on you as a player and you go back to what you just did in Oakland and back to all the things that you did in Pittsburgh yeah that talent won't outweigh the cancer that you'll be in that locker room and the headache that the coaches and GM selected deal with so this is really his last opportunity with bill Belichick because I truly feel this organization of bill Belichick are the only ones that can"
