Antonio Brown apparently upset with Raiders after team hits him with hefty fines for skipping practice

Just so we're clear."
Of course, the most notable thing about this entire situation is that Brown HAS SKIPPED TWO PRACTICES ALREADY. Brown was Steelers.in Pittsburgh, and the fact that he's now doing the same thing in Oakland probably isn't making the Raiders feel so good about the trade they made with the
Brown's offseason has basically been one crazy story after another, and although the Raiders have been attempting to put out every fire, they're basically using a water gun against a five-alarm blaze.
If you've somehow lost track of what the Raiders have had to deal with since the start of training camp, here's a quick refresher: Brown has NFL wouldn't let him wear the helmet of his choice, and he also missed the most training camp because .because the
