Did the Raiders contact Antonio Brown's agent before Brown apologized?

"Something i wanted to get to the bottom of was did the raiders in fact contact. Rosenhaus awesome tonio brown's agent. I've seen this kind of float around but i'm not sure that this is what happens i wanted to see if either of you know <hes> if he was contacted before we're antonio brown's apology on friday and told that the guaranteed money and his contract would be voided as it was at that point so at that point basically antonio only lebron's going in apologizing knowing that the thirty million is a hit is that something that we know was already told to him before the apology or i don't i think to <hes> the bottom line on that is that they didn't have to i mean he knows as well as anybody once they imposed that discipline. They have the right to go after it so i mean i think he's smart enough to know without having that conversation that that was what they were angling for. It was clear we talked about <hes> when we first saw these letters on wednesday basically all those letters. There's are is is a legal paper trail down the road to say here's what happened. We had we had these issues. We had to find him. This is what went on that's all. Those letters are for <hes> so i think rosenhaus kind of knew he probably explai- tube and there i'm positive on some level even though no it's illegal according to the rules of the n._f._l. Under the c._b._a. I'm positive that rosenhaus was talking to other teams and saying if this happens if the contract is voided if for run out what is the market and i'm sure he knew what it was and so like. Did he know those things. I don't. I'm sure he did was explicitly laid out by the raiders. I'm i'm not sure about how that worked but <hes> i'm sure he knew exactly what the situation was yeah so in other words. He knew the patriots were looking at him and that he could play there. Air instead of explicitly said i'm sure he knew what the market was. When you think of maybe this is like a wild theory and so. I got on tin foil hat. You're so picture that all of us but if <hes> excuse me antonio brown got to the raiders he was happy happy for a little while then started practicing with these guys right maybe gets the training camp and he's like what they're not going to be very good and then he's just decides besides you know what bleep this. I'm just going to act ugly. I'm gonna throw crap all over the walls until i'm just going to keep doing it. Even though you tell me to stop even though you tell me you know i'm gonna find you find me on posting on instagram like i'm going to now make it even bigger mess and then he knows that he enforce himself out because he knows that there's maybe a winner. That will be there for him. I think that it's not out of their own with possibility as i now take my tinfoil hat off and put my reporter reporter hat right back on that. This is something that could have happened because when it's five hours after somebody releases you that you are with defending super bowl champions. There's maybe somebody should look into that right. I mean i think i went once the further with my tin foil will happen i tweeted and it was more of a joke but <hes> as as everything in my life does it relates to seinfeld but there was there was an episode of seinfeld where the mets wanted to hire george costanza away from the yankees and they couldn't just hire him because it would be tampering and they wouldn't be able to go hire them away from team so they told him to do everything he could to get fired from the yankees. He started dragging the world series trophy around he was wearing babe ruth pants from the yankee museum. <hes> everything do get fired so that the mets would be able to hire him like in my mind. Bella check like a go create chaos out there. We need to bring you in. That's the only way we can get you and that's again a complete and total conspiracy. Uh but i like to think that it's true. Let's talk about some of the possible reaction and we can expect here from the raiders because i wanna in a hypothesize what derek carr might say about antonio brown's tweet of bumper cars meaning. He and his brother david had been doing some conversation about antonio brown. That's what i interpreted that tweet demean. I can't imagine it would mean anything else so cars generally very nice well-spoken guy in front of the media very even temperament. Do we expect any crazy reaction from him. Certainly not i mean he's a quarterback right and quarterbacks are always is going to be measured in what they say. Now i do sort of wish that we have been hearing directly from derek carr instead of through really an intermediary as his brother on n._f._l. Network right. I think especially because derek carr was in the locker room today and we were told as he came back in that he was not going to be talking and and that's fine. He certainly has that right and he's a quarterback. He speaks one time a week but i just think it would have been nice to hear directly from derek carr car <hes> since you know he had been nothing but supportive i totally respect dirk are not talking but i think that you know it just it just would have been nice to hear from the quarterback in that particular situation and he doesn't have to but he could've essentially descending out press releases. I mean through his approach. That's what he's doing in. They're not it's not it's not like they're being secretive about it. I think that's that's the one thing i'll say about this is like if it was just some secret that if it was some random person in the media and derek carr was feeding things to get it out there and not talking to the media locally but hey i'm gonna feed this to whoever you you know whatever national reporter and it's coming out saying oh source close to the team said like that would be a little bit different to me than in this case. It's basically his brother going on tv serving mrs mouthpiece and saying explicitly. I talked to derrick this morning. Here is what he said. I think they're being pretty open about it. It just it clearly rubbed antonio radio brown the wrong way and you know we saw the other day he unfolded the raiders and derek carr on instagram and then reformed the raiders but not car like that was pretty telling of where they are have a check dam sure he unveiled the raiders as well now he did. Yes yeah <hes> but you know. I think that was incredibly telling that when he did follow the raiders he did not re follow derek carr. You know i it was pretty clear that that relationship was was heading in the wrong way. Even though derek carr continued to say how close they were and how they've played well after field and here's the other thing it listen it's part of the job we understand but how many times jon gruden was asked how many times micmac was asked just how many times derek carr was asked about the distractions in about everything that's going on and how many times they basically said. You're inventing this you guys the media are inventing the story story. No no weren't by the way to the same thing to the readers out there to the fans out there like these things are not invented. There's a reason isn't that story. Lines are storylines. This was something that was going on and it was bubbling over all the time and it was distracting the team. It was bothering the team. It certainly had been an issue for a while and now it just has has reached that point where they couldn't deal with it anymore but i think it would absolutely not be surprising if it was something that tonio earlier brown was like i need to do this i need to get out and this is my way out and the other thing is it wasn't blown out of proportion either. That's the that's the phrase that like gets on my nerves a little bit. <hes> men like all these things you're saying. They were blown out of proportion. It's blown out of proportion. He's just a wide receivers blown out of proportion. Friggin von miller said that on on a conference call the other day no. It's not blown out of proportion when you're yelling at g._m. In practice right you're posting your fines on instagram. When you ask on instagram to be released win. You recorded your ahead coach with a stencil your head coach with the conversation. Put it on a two minute youtube video in a two party consent state. I don't really think any of these things are being blown out of proportion so i love what jonathan abram had to say on twitter and he put this out just about a little over an hour ago he says in today's world the worst drug there is called attention

AB reacts to fines from Raiders, has new helmet

"We have to address a couple more here. We're gonna start in with exactly what is going on in oakland oakland with antonio brown's so many things have happened. It's hard to keep track of and hard knocks being there to help the situation for the raiders in dealing with their star wide receiver and the various antics surrounding him the helmet issue has been well documented for some time for those who don't know antonio browns helmet that he has used his entire career was deemed illegal by the n._f._l. It wasn't safe enough for antonio so he decided to filed a suit saying that he wasn't enough time to adequately find a helmet. He likes to wear for the games. He filed two different grievances. Both it did not fly with the n._f._l. And he lost both of them so he has had to find a helmet he has reported to camp the newest thing being he has has been fined by mike mayock general manager for missing so much time with the team. Antonio brown has stated how upset he is about these fines being levied on on him but frankly i love antonio brown's charisma. I love the way he uses the media to help him and you got to think about the raiders in with hard knocks with everything around their team right now media wise. There's a lot of scrutiny jon gruden being signed that ten year one hundred million dollar contract trading khalil mack trading amari cooper everyone in the n._f._l. Media is trying to keep tabs on what's going on in oakland and antonio brown by taking taking so much of that media heat. He has really made it easier for guys like p._j. Hall arden key cleveland feral jonathan abrams josh jacobs all these rookies and second year players that really have some potential have not had to deal with this media blitz because antonio has been there to kinda shield them from that and on that side i think that the raiders as an organization as a fan base need to thank antonio brown for taking that heat off of their other players so they can develop and really dig into the system not having to worry about media relations however now with this new grievance hopefully it's nothing between antonio brown and mike mayock. They can just move past. It's obvious that he had to get fined for missing so much time with the

"So I really feel that way. Just because I think, you know, and I'm not at all proposing. The Cowboys are going to say, okay, we have to take a safety. No matter what no matter who's there. Whatever the case may be we're going to take a safety with the fifth overall because we need to devote some resources. I don't think it's at all. But I do think that there are a lot of safeties. If it with the Cowboys like the guy that loves and. If you're a beauty beer, and you're listening to this. You know, the name Juan Thornhill out of Virginia is the apple of every Cowboys fans. I can do it all I mean, he can do it all and I think that that's really what you want their safety. And you wanna pair with your woods who is a young players still entering only his third season in two thousand nineteen. And so I mean, if you had one on your woods is the back end of your secondary. I think you're doing all right for yourself. Obviously people have different levels of infatuation different levels of love when it comes to other safeties. Jonathan Abram is another guy that a lot of people are really hoping and crossing their fingers false at the Cowboys. I don't know if that's going to happen necessarily. I think that you know, it's hard again, it's very difficult to predict how teams are going to feel how teams are going to draft who maybe somebody's in love Jonathan. Maybe somebody's in love with one Thornhill. You just never know an comes to the NFL draft. But the fact remains that he's going to be a guy. Taylor rap is a guy that many people love, and the fact that there are just this wide ranging number of safeties. Is what leads me to believe that? It's just gonna make sense for the Cowboys. I know that Jalen Ferguson is a name that people have associated with the Cowboys. And there are a lot of people who do not want to see that the pick..

"But they've got some kind of group of Jonathan Abram Taylor rap, Darnell savage, want Thornhill, Deontay Thomson. Amani Hooker will be there. But he's more of a strong, safety my opinion. But you've got Abram, rap savage, Thornhill and Thomson that's five. Potential safeties that could be there in the second round. And I'm happy with any of them. And I think the fall off between garner Johnson say deonte Thomson, isn't that much and is much more narrow than the difference between reisner and a guy like mcgarry because you're talking about four very good tackles that went before I got to pick at number twenty eight all potential starters. I think reisner is the last of that group before you're talking about major project, even though risers the fifth Bex office of tackle. I think you gotta get ahead of the curve now and get your potential starter. Now before getting a the best safety, and then having to get a project that you know, may not even be better than Sam teddy in your one. And that's an issue because Sam teddy wasn't good last year. And the way I'm looking at it is I'm going with don't riser. I'm getting ahead of the curve. I'm grabbing my potential starting tackle the only one that's still left, and then I'm going to leave round two for safety or an interior defensive linemen. And i've. Got a chance to get some towns of guys like want Thornhill or Danny Thompson, Darnell savage. I'm happy with any of those guys. I think that's a great pick in the second round. If I can get one of those three and then in the interior defense of linemen the fall off between Dexter Lawrence and the next group like Renault, Ren, Kaelin Saunders tristen hill. Not that far off. I think what you're looking at is. If you go reisner here, you then pick the best of that three one Thornhill Deontay Thompson, Darnall savage, right? Let's let's pretend it's want on hill. So you've got reisner you've got Thornhill or the Thompson..

"And then eight as that the highest third round grade or close to that that I have is Jonathan Abram from Mississippi State, Ben Where'd you take umbrella WJR on that of us. I was gonna say I was gonna say bridge. And then you already said it an my thing with the with Taylor RAB above Thornhill and y'all sat him above Hooker. Yeah. He has nothing with that. Honestly. Honestly, I don't hate it. If I look so rap as mice as my safety seven, and he comes in at fifty fourth overall wise, I have like Hooker at thirty nine and I have Thornhill thirty four. So I have Thornhill thirty four overall. Darnold, savage, thirty five overall all money Hooker thirty nine overall. Yeah, they come in on a six player little island there. There's three of them just right next to each other. And then wrap is a step down. I can understand having ramp up in that group because rap super high floor like rap is just gonna play in the league. And he's gonna play for a long time and just going to be fine. And it's all going to be well in dandy. I don't really see much boss potential for Khokar. I don't see much for Thornhill. I see a little bit for savage. I guess because he's smaller though, Thornhill. Did you catch this apparently apparently teams thinks hills dumb, which is weird? Yeah. Jury this. Enter deter co is on the pro circuit, Bijan radio specially talk with love this football intelligence. I find it very interesting that seems thinks that his experience like it doesn't show up on Phil for me. Yeah. And that's right. I was gonna say Virginia's out there running some coverages man Virginia's like that. They're doing some stuff. Those good secondary. He'll play a lot of roles in three interesting. I talked with a helluva the senior bowl and he's debt like we didn't talk much football. But he's cutting very well-spoken. So I wonder if they're saying it's on the whiteboard specifically, so maybe that maybe that's problem for Thornhill. Some teams on moving back to corner, which I get it because of the length because the explosion is kind of that Byron Jones with situation site Gant having wrap up there, but to me when I just look purely at athletic profiles, and what that means as a potential early to mid round to selection like I just I wouldn't hate taking wrap there. But if there's another one of those guys on the board, I think in offer so much more and terms of ball hawking in terms of playmaking. I talked with Tim ho how hawk Tim Hauck how the eagles safety coach HA UCK tired of pass training camp. We talked about evaluating safeties because it's notoriously tricky. And he was like the number one thing. I look for just the ability make plays on the ball. Getting rap just doesn't make plays on the ball. Yeah. So tell me like that again Raskin to stay in the league, and he's high floor guy and his Greek Eric, Janice. Great tackler. I would I don't want him to be in the same tier as those guys because if rap was one of two on the board, I would want the other guy. So it's important me the wraps below. That's my main bridge. What if I put it to you like? This from thirty to forty eight. I have savage Thomson rap Hooker and Thornhill Thornhill after Thompson is the next free safety single high type safety. So it does depend on what you're looking for as well. So I'm not going to stick to my rankings. If I need a certain thing. So I like Thornhill in that role. I think he makes makes sense if you wanna take him before those other guys they're very very close for me clustered together. What about what about more rankings? Let's let's I want to fight with you. Yeah. In a got safety one fifteen overall Chauncey and then twenty one of on twenty two over all Diaz Thompson Assira backed back on down. Okay. Thirty four as one four nil. Thirty five's darnold savage, thirty nine money Hooker, fifty four Taylor rat. My big surprise, which item thing this is going to happen. But it Dan aren't even I feel about it. Sixty three overalls Ahmadi at Oregon seventy four Jonathan Abram Mississippi State and then eighty five drought matab ten Mike Edwards out of Kentucky. I have eleven safeties in my top one hundred. Like, I like that sell Sheldrick red wine is last one out of Miami. Good blah with Jonathan Abram getting so much first round height like back into the first round type hype..

"Really? So I'm looking at all the mocks and all the mocks have Jonathan Abram Mississippi State going at these safety at the bottom of the first grand somewhere in the bottom of the front around. So are you telling me that that running Harrison would be above him in the draft because Jonathan Abram ran for four five at the combine Ronnie Harrison ran four six five so just on that alone at defensive back position. I promise you he wouldn't running Harrison would not go above Jonathan Abe and who's to say these guys. A lot of these guys come because they know got his plan their position is going to lead. Yeah. Who was saying that run run Harrison starting with that? Okay. Deontay Thompson, he was first team all American who's to say that he's even starting in vain what? Because this what we know teams. What they do. They look at our home. If you're good at you say, you are why are you still going to college people? Look that's not who evaluate if you spend more than the allotted time agree. So you're gonna go back for no money risk a Marcus Lattimore situation. What if he tears up God forbid knock on wood? What if he tears up his knee, and everybody know he has no value and everybody knows kill saving grinds them. Oh, you work that it's a factory. Oh, you work two hours. You get it in. But you say, but you understand that you could get Eddie lazy and a Trent Richardson and this one into that one because they say, you know, what it's my turn Mark Ingram. He leaving. I'm coming. He leave it. I'm coming. He leave it. I'm coming. They don't want to stay coat their goal because they feel like skiffs. It is fast track. We go to Alabama or we go to one of these big schools. Yeah. That's the quickest way for us to get to our final destination. Isn't that the state? I'm not going to I'm not going to lay over on time. I'm trying to get to my destination NFL whole saving. This is a horrible. Look. This is talk. How many coaches leave sabre were they ready to leave? Oughta go do what ready to leave because we know here five lead this year, maybe to the previous year to before their coaches leave and get to go and come only the kids get penalized. Because remember they could sign a contract and a better overcome along they go. But now, they got this grad transfer rule this little better give this ridiculous. But come oh. You don't want all the championships on the backs of these do you make it nine million and the do go. He tried to make four hundred this Ronnie Harrison hashtag keep pied Dame outfield now. Yeah, that is powerful that that's one of his own who just said, no, no. I think he just lost his sideline pass to the next Auburn game or wouldn't worry about making four hundred thousand go this year what kidding column make four hundred thousand dollars. Was he could've may eighteen million. Gimme the four hundred five right now. I promise tomorrow yell, and what's the final irony of this? We're always told that coach Sabin hands on coaches the secondary. Right. And what have we seen routinely come out of his secondary overrated draft picks? Right. Yes. So we've seen some. Great. And we've seen a whole bunch of them who busted the National Football League. And that's the position that coach Sabin hands on coaches. So again, I'm happy for Ronnie Harrison he got draft. There's nothing wrong with the third round. You are seven let's give you know, what this is about what happened in that game. And they got Torchwood law through for like seven million six hundred thousand mile how many tons that happen to Saint Nick or eight Knicks. So he's upset about what? Ronnie Irani head of state what he's a busy well Minka fifth, Patrick state and all the other guys should've stayed come on come on coach. I gold and they had seven players declare early for the draft. So the most in school history skill..

"Activated still have have only they the kitty play the canard is in college now and it sounded like he was doing well okay good um uh we mentioned snoop i'd again i just going to give up this book is three hundred twenty pages of gold i'm just going to give a couple of examples to let you people know what's in there so snoop's famous last line is took to mike is how my hair look mike um before mike shooter and pellicano talks about writing that line and he writes it in david simon calls them and says sees the script and causes i don't i don't get it and he says pellicano says now quoting your book um what i told him was at this is someone who's never commented on her looks but she's pretty and i think she cares about it and i think it's the last thing that you would think about knowing that she's going to die is the way she looked and the way she's going to look when she's found just i just i can't imagine having a brain that looks like literally it's never mentioned on the show and he has this immagination now it's just it's unbelievable right and so for me and a friend who writer poet honey echoed here we're mostly just messing around but we're trying to write like a pilot i go back wealth drama it will never be delighted day but just even going through the exercise and trying to come up with picture on dialogue and china place myself in this world it was almost like i was huge in a different part of my brain and people who do it so regularly it just amazed me ever polikoff to have that vision where david simon i don't think he got it at first.

"It's not something in season one that they thought by the end we're going to rehabilitate bubbles it just it's it's fascinating to think about because it's so vast that you don't really conceptualize how they do it and you bring us into that was there anything in that regard like that really sort of surprised you are stuck with you about just that process i think also how the actors didn't know weektoweek or script descript where their characters are going and that frustrated a lot of the actors but david simon's whole thing was that in life we don't know where we're going to be tomorrow so he didn't want any of his actors to know or or tip their hands that's fascinating to me because i'm all about preparation rate in knowing trying to know what's next but david simon didn't do that disasters um and as you said some of them were frustrated in one of the things about the book is that like again you just watch the show is in my goal you know soandso gets killed on breaking bad or who is going to get whacked this week on the sopranos and you read these stories of the the characters finding out that they're going to be killed on the wire it and not only that other characters finding out that they're going to be the ones to kill those other characters and not only that tertiary characters who have nothing to do with that story line finding out that other characters are going to be killed and showing up to the sat to sort of memorialize the the event it's like this was real like the actor plays michael talks about young finds out that he's going to kill snoop and is like i don't think i can do this in in in your head you're like tuesday a television show but for them it was it was astonishing to me to read that it was really really emotional.

"Before shooting wallet and ed burn food that to that point they had made bullied this cycle path who wouldn't hesitate and that was a big argument for those guys on where to go with bodey um where do you fall with that i i found that to be one of the more fascinating sections in his section of the book because you i remembered thinking that they do present bodey is just too the toss ice cold guy and then they humanism human as the ends of shooting wallace haven't you how you many is but they semi humanism in that moment and i mean wallace was such as sympathetic and lovable and real character that you could imagine even someone is stonecold is bodey sort of glancing at that job but i i looked at it more you know what he watches show like this or madmen or or breaking bad or whatever that has these huge judge long story aarchs with lots and lots of characters you sort of can't imagine how the brains behind the show even begin to conceptual as it like do they know in season too that this thing is going to happen in season five how do they foreshadow it literally how do they keep all the characters straight in their heads like where are they worded we leave them what location were they in and um you take us so deepen the writer's room that you have a sense of that it at least and how this writer's room worked and like sometimes yeah they do know that um they do have an idea of how this character is going to meet his end or what's going to happen for him in season four and sometimes they have moments like that were they are presented with an event and you you think maybe like oh they had this in mind for bodey this hesitation and it it's the product of debate uh at the moment and there's a lot of stuff like that like gum sort of the um uh bubbles journey to sobriety.

"Characters in the wire so i don't blame you i don't see the need to be decided why does he punched and what what's the what's the argument about though he was trying to be a legitimate policeman basically and stay on leicester's a team when his father in law whose higher up in the chain of command wanted to give them on the fast track to becoming a lieutenant or captain there basically have him doing easy work so it just kind of boiled over for pros davis is also an among your nominees uh again an example of some of the things are gonna get in this book klay davis obviously famous for one word did he said on the show which we're gonna swear unstuck as it's unavoidable in that word was it as i can't even do do a justice but he sat in the good i i can i can do it i cannot do he tried to fit into four five philibeaux while he says it if you here's the quote if you wanna write it to me i guess you telling about an emails are scripts if you wanna write it to me use nine es f you to any more than that you're not saying it right so she has nine eased and then another actress who had to work with him followed up with his awesome in quote saying like how long are you going to do it for how long is going to last accede to know rhythmically is going to be a shoot it or is it going to stop when is it going to say it's is like the fact that you have the actor sharing scenes with klay davis who's like stressed out about i don't know how to go back and forth because i'm not sure when he's going to done be done saying the war is like that is hilarious here and that was something that uh there were uh actor you played quay david with him from doing by queen movie could be brought it to the wire and the writer started writing at an event and then he just ran with it my favorite character for the record as bodey.

"You've seen the show a million times and you're agent actually approach do with the idea of doing an oral history are doing something reflective on the show and and obviously there is no book if david simon says no to you and you've already told the story before about how you sent this long uh pool beautiful email to david's time david simon pitching this idea expecting some perhaps push back or scepticism and all you got was a onesentence replies inc give this dude it every wants so that's cool then you meet david simon you meet him on a train from new york to boston i believe it and i guess what like if you've ever seen dame assignments speak or read is writing or follow him on twitter um he is uh uh i would say skeptical of almost everything scepticism may be the governing ethos of the wire um um and certainly i think scepticism of anything that smells like something about traditional hollywood or something that wanted to build the artistry of this show or the hollywood nece of the shore whatever it is like some so like the typical biography of a television show is not i think what david simon would be interested in so when you met him did you sense like that you had to prove that you were not going to write a book about like oh man omar was cool let's do like a forty page sexually how coolmore did you sent you had to cut a win him over in that regard i don't think he'll become a joke around about the better.
