One day aft Raiders director Jon Gruden said Antonio Brown was at the ready to move on from his pre-season grievances and play football, Oakland merchandised Brown work time aft he publically requested to be let go.

Gruden said Friday that the Raiders were aflutter to have Brown back, pursuing Brown’s mid-week challenge with broad director Mike Mayock. Hours later, ESPN reported that Brown was penalized once again by the Raiders for his behaviour – but the details of the fine led Brown to ask for a merchandise.

Brown was penalized $215,073, reported to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, for “conduct damaging to the team.” The penalty voided Brown’s remaining $29 million in guaranteed money, which gives the Raiders the option to cut ties with Brown at any time without suffering a major financial penalty. Instead of playing for his base salary, Brown said “no more.”
