Antonio Brown “part of everything” Raiders did Saturday

A report on Thursday indicated wide receiver Antonio Brown is close to returning to practice with the Raiders and Brown’s activity level on Saturday supports that idea.

Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said Brown “took all the reps today in our walkthrough” and that he anticipates the wideout will be practicing soon. Gruden and quarterback Derek Carr each complimented Brown’s retention of material despite not practicing this month.

“He did everything with us just now and the man’s recall is unbelievable,” Carr said, via Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com. “He came in and, no mental errors, and in this offense, that’s not easy to do. Especially, whenever you have a day off, even, especially as a player, you come back and you’re like, you’ve got to stay on coach Gruden’s offense all the time. You can tell Antonio’s been studying because he came out and didn’t miss a beat . . . he was a part of everything we did today.”

The Raiders have been waiting quite a while for Brown to be part of anything they were doing, so Saturday’s development on the heels of warming up with the team before Thursday’s game feels like some light at the end of the tunnel.

  1. Too funny. A walk through is not really a milestone on the way to recovery for a wide receiver with frostbitten feet. Maybe a grandma on her new hip.

  2. nothing he does will ever be good enough now that he is on the raiders. they could win 5 super bowls in a row and accord to the media gruden still hates carr and brown will blow up any day ruining the entire franchise for ever.

  3. I have yet to hear one negative comment, even if it is he showed up late to a meeting, or what a stupid thing to do to file a grievance over a helmet. We already know he doesn’t pay attention at meetings from prior anonymous reports.

    The raiders are afraid, very afraid, of AB going nuclear on them. Everyone is walking on egg shells. Brown can do no wrong no matter what wrong he does.

  4. He was running routes in pre game last night. It looked like he could have played. He was doing much more than a walk through on the field in Arizona.

  5. Imagine what the NFL will be like in 20 years. Now go out and enjoy the next few years as if they were your last. Because they are.

  6. All these remarks about the finest receiver in the game. So he’s a prima. He’s also a winner.

  7. Steelers fans are almost out of time to pretend they’re not going to miss AB.

    He opened up everything, everything that’s now going to be closed.

    Have fun looking up at the Browns.

  8. Until the first missed route at which point the meltdown happens.. this guy is T.O 2.0 and he’ll be out of football sooner rather than later and wondering where it all went

    A winner? What exactly has he won. He’s been to 1 Super Bowl and LOST. And his stats for that game – 1 rec for 1 yard. Ya sounds like a winner to me. Did he get MVP for that performance?

    Really? What exactly has he “won”?

  11. How many starters are actually seeing time in (the first couple of) preseason games? And how much money are the players paid to play in these preseason games?
    Enough said.

    I’m far from the grammar police, but is spelled “whiner”.
