Not Steelers related, but I am sure they are laughing:

The Oakland Raiders are set to suspend Antonio Brown after getting into a blow-up with GM, Mike Mayock on Wednesday.

If I had any money I would put some on the Raiders releasing AB before the season is over and them saying he violated a morals clause in his contract and AB not getting or having to return his guaranteed money

He obviously doesnít want to play for them, or maybe he even doesnít want to play period.

I hope that he does not get released. You just know that either the Patriots or Browns would sign him probably for the veteran's minimum (especially New England) and he would come back to haunt the Steelers. With that said I could see him being a cancer/poison on Cleveland. Belichick however would not allow that.

He may have screwed himself big time.  So far the Raiders haven't paid him a cent and he's already out a half million because he didn't meet the training camp requirements in his contract.  Throw in another chunk from the $54,000 in fines and he's losing more.

That being said, fines should be the least of Brown's worries right now and that's because he's now facing a team suspension. If the Raiders go that route, there's a chance that Brown could end up seeing the rest of his guaranteed money voided, which means he'd lose out on $29.625 million after already losing out on $500,000. Once the money is voided, the Raiders could theoretically cut him without taking any sort of salary cap hit.

The Raiders have basically been dealing with Brown's drama since the day he arrived in Oakland, and it's starting to feel like the only way this drama is going to end is if the team gets rid of him.

Given his history in Pittsburgh and now Oakland, teams would be nuts to offer him any huge contract.  He's proven to be pure poison.

I have said a number of times that AB is suffering from the brain disorder that has effected a number of other players.  When they autopsy his brain, they will find evidence of it.  He is going thru a sort early onset.  IMHO

In another twist to the sage, Brown apologized to the team today and apparently will be playing on Monday Night.

My opinion is that Gruden wants Brown playing while Mayock probably wanted a suspension and it is clear that Gruden is running things.

Gruden is making $10 million/year so yes that makes sense.

I canít keep up with all the twists:

AB YouTube page released a video/commercial where he played apparent recordings he had with Gruden.

The Raiders then fined Brown and voided his guarantees.

Brown posted on the Instagram for the Raiders to release him.

This is great.  Those two draft picks the Steelers got are looking better every day!!  Anyone that signs AB once he is released is not going to give him a huge contract without all kind of clauses.  It's absolutely amazing how stupid some of these athletes can be.  If someone wanted to pay me 30 mil and all I had to do was keep my mouth shut and play, I'd be there in a heartbeat!!

Exactly! Just Dwayne Bowe it (earn the big contract then play poorly) if nothing else.

The Raiders have released Antonio Brown.

He probably made the decision early on that the Raiders weren't very good, and could force his way out to free agency.  He may have to take a little less $, and less guaranteed $, but he'll play again.

That said, I do believe he'll be one of the guys you read about 10 years after retiring that's down and out, and got nothing but troubles and unpaid bills.  Time will tell.

Was just watching some of the talking heads and Pete Prisco asked several GM's if they'd sign AB and they laughed at him.  It's starting to look like anyone that is even considering it will only go one year with nothing guaranteed.  Given his antics that go back to 2012 with the Steelers after they gave him his first big contract, looks like he's finally screwed himself permanently.
