Antonio Brown Fined by Oakland Raiders for Missing Two Practices

Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown posted an Instagram story Monday showcasing a letter from Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock.

What We Know:

  • In the letter, Mayock stated that “…as you know, you did not participate in the Raiders’ walk through on August 22,” the letter begins. “Your absence from practice was unexcused. Accordingly, you are hereby fined $13,950 pursuant to Article 42, Section 1(a)(viii) of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement and the Raiders’ Club Discipline Schedule.”
  • He continued by stating “You were previously fined $40,000 for missing Raiders’ preseason training camp on August 18. Please be advised that should you continue to miss mandatory team activities, including practices and games, the Raiders reserve the right to impose additional remedies available under the Club’s Discipline Schedule, the CBA and your NFL Player Contract…”
  • Brown added his own commentary and stated that “when your own team want to hate but there’s no stopping me now devil is a lie. Everyone got to pay this year so we clear.”
  • The fine was placed August 18, the same day that Mayock stated that it was time for Brown to be all in or all out.

Considering he missed practice four days later…he did not learn his lesson.
