The Antonio Brown drama will never end.
Early this week, Brown was threatened with suspension after he allegedly called GM Mike Mayock a “cracker” and threatened to punch Mayock in the face because he was angry that he was fined for missing practices during training camp.
A Raiders source confirmed Brown was unhappy with the fine levied by the team and, seeing Mayock watching practice, walked over and initiated an exchange with the GM. The Raiders source confirmed information from another league source who said Brown called Mayock a “cracker” and unleashed a barrage of “cuss words” during the altercation.
The source stressed the confrontation escalated quickly, but it never appeared to be getting physical, and players, including linebacker Vontaze Burfict, attempted to separate Brown from the situation in order to calm him down.
That led to the team planning to suspend Brown, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Brown has since apologized to his team for his actions but denies using the word cracker during his confrontation with Mayock.
Now ESPN’s Ed Werder is reporting that the Raiders have fined the Raiders star wide receiver for “unprofessional behavior” and AB is not happy about it.
As of now, Brown plans to play in the team’s first game on Monday night against the Broncos unless he has another meltdown between now and then.
