Antonio Brown posts video celebrating release from Raiders

Getty Images

Antonio Brown was thrilled to be released by the Raiders.

At least, that’s how he acted in a video he posted to YouTube shortly after the release became official.

In the video, Brown is shown looking at his phone, seeing the news that the Raiders have released him, and then yelling, “Free!” Brown then runs outside screaming and celebrating, repeating, “Let’s go!” and “Free!”

Brown then called his grandmother and said, “They freed me, Grandma!”

It’s unclear whether Brown knew at the time that he’d have interest from the Patriots, but just hours later he agreed to terms with New England, where he’s likely to make his debut in Week Two.

  1. To AB – PLEASE, PLEASE, you be you in New England! Don’t change who you are for anyone, ever, especially some old coach! If he doesn’t want to let you be who you are, you just let him know what you’re all about, the way you let people know what you’re all about. JUST BE YOU BABY! (and I do mean baby…)

  2. Be interesting to see the contract terms. New England isn’t exactly famous for tolerating a lot of social media nonsense, can the NFLPA allow that type of language to be included in a contract?

  3. Brown is shown looking at his phone, seeing the news that the Raiders have released him, and then yelling, “Free!”

    What a coincidence. I’m sure the Raiders (coaches and players) felt the same way.

  4. Don’t seem possible but if Belichick puts that genie back in the bottle he moves beyond goat.

  5. footballpat….make all the excuses you want, he’s been a cancer. He may still get suspended. I hope he does. Your team signed murderers, so give it a rest

  6. I was cheering for this guy to turn things around with the Raiders. Threatening the GM, and then being enraged that he was treated like one of his teammates and held accountable for it, makes think the guy is a self-entitled a-hole.

    If Belichick hadn’t signed him, I’m sure his friend the (alleged) coach of the Detroit Lions would have. Based on Randy Moss flaming out in New England, Brown might not last the season. It kinda depends on how much nonsense Belichick will tolerate if he believes Brown will help them win the Super Bowl.

    The big question is whether New England contacted him before he was released by the Raiders.

  7. In BB I trust but this one shocks me.

    We’ll see if the “everyone gets a clean slate and it’s all about football here or your gone” principle works on a man child.

    To all you haters. At least he’s not a
    wife beater and a child abuser like the guys your team signs.

    —————

    But only a select few franchises have had actual murderers on their roster. Well played.

  9. The funny thing is that we hear how wonderful run the Patriots organization is let’s just keep in mind that the only reason they cut Hernandez is because he was being led in handcuffs. This latest stint just proves that NFL teams put wins over integrity any day of the week.

  10. If he straightens up for the Patriots then you will know AB had planned this …not sure anything can be done but I don’t care either way I’ll just be cheering on my redskins good or bad but at least they didn’t sign AB .. Things are looking up

  11. Now there’s a profile in disgusting privilege. Guy quits on his former team, forces a trade, goes absolutely bananas but the new team is willing to tolerate all of it if he’ll just do his job. And he can’t even do it.

    And now he’s celebrating being “freed” from the opportunity to earn $100 million from a team that wanted him and was willing to put up with loads of BS along the way.

  12. The internet is blowing up Antonio Brown joining the Patriots but didn’t say anything when Tyrick Hill got a 3 year extension paying him 18 million a year with 30 million guarantee.Me personally I rather deal with a nut job then a child abuser.

  13. Quick analysis:

    1. The pats have no tight end threat and no proven outside threat that can be counted on to create separation — #11’s skillset is in the horizontal game, not the vertical.
    2. With the o-line weakened by Andrew’s injury, TB12 is going to need more protection and more separation from his WR’s to unload quickly – as if he didn’t need to unload quickly enough. Sorry, but while Thomas’s comments about the Pats’ o-line don’t really apply literally to the fine linemen in NE, Brady’s release time makes his o-line’s job easier and their protection stats nicer. It’s sour grapes for Thomas, he never had such a qb.
    3. So adding in AB is not just lumping in another big weapon – it’s about adding a dimension to hide weaknesses that leave TB12 vulnerable to a serious front four, and there are a lot of them in the AFC on the schedule—Josh and BB are always looking at the schedule to see what they need in personnel.
    4. The comments about AB vs. Hill and such are accurate. AB is a pain in the butt, but he doesn’t beat up women or mess up with drugs. He’s just a mouthy diva and a bad teammate –kinda sez something that that distinction makes him a cut above other high-profile-for-the-wrong-reasons characters. Nevertheless, keep him on a short leash and he adds a dimension that the Pats’ offense needs to be fully rounded up. Now who do you cover, and how many can you send in against the best qb against the blitz in history?
    5. Gotta love Arians – “All the drama is in the receivers’ room.”
    6. I’m betting DR told his client he was playing for his career, and if he ever wanted to see a real “big chest”, he has to tamp down the butthole diva for five months.

  14. “Freed”? The organization gave up valuable draft picks to acquire you, then handed you the contract you wanted for tens of millions of dollars, and all they asked was that you act like a competent professional. “FREED”, F.O.H.

  15. AB is no different than Paul George. Both left two teams and both did it to a team that they still had years left on the deal they signed. May not like how AB goes about his business, but he seems pretty calculated so far, ie helmet endorsement.

  16. He’s an ass and hate the signing. We Pats fans always say in Bill w trust, but this one has me scratching my head.

    to anyone who claims this was planned with the Pats you’re nuts. Brown just gave up 21 million dollars going from 30 million guaranteed to 9. Nobody gives up 21 million like that.

  17. I cannot see how this can possibly work out. die hard patriots fan and realist. still shocked this happened. thought for sure he would be a Bengal.

    will be great if he can drink the kool aid, I just don’t see how that is possible.

  19. BB walks into the WR meeting:

    Alright, listen up. I don’t want any problems from this room, ok? No “I’m not getting enough passes thrown to me, no taking plays off, no BS on or off the field. Keep your personal life out of the media. No drugs, no throwing furniture out the window, nothing.

    One issue, and you’re done, alright? You understand me?

  20. He is certifiable. You will hear more about this moron, but it probably will not be good. His “people”, if caring about his well being, should realize he needs help.

    Geez. Talk about not letting facts get in the way of hating. Who exactly was the “murderer” the Patriots signed? You may be confusing him with Aaron Hernandez, who was releases within hours of first being arrested. And are you seriously comparing AB to that?

    But do keep on living in your own losing world.

    AB – “Got it coach, just give me a second while I post this video of you to You Tube. What did you say again?”

  23. I hate to say this but karma will catch up to him! He has an attitude of TO and this guy better not be voted in at the HOF OF PRO FOOTBALL!

  24. I cant believe Brady is on board with this.

    Is the NFL watching this clown show?

    Is there a pool going for how long this relationship lasts? 2 games, 3 games before another temper tantrum?

  25. Well as a Patriots fan I hate the move dont want him on my team. I also thought Bill would never deal with such a cancer boy I could not be more wrong!

    So you’re apparently saying you don’t care about character, with a strange comment signed by players with character issues, but simultaneously, you want to rip other franchises for their character issues. Not a hint of hypocrisy anywhere in there.

  27. With the way AB likes to be on social media and the way the new Cards HC said he’s giving players 20mi per hour for social media time I figured they were a sure fit for AB!

  28. “..It’s unclear whether Brown knew at the time that he’d have interest from the Patriots, but just hours later he agreed to terms with New England…”

    You’re far from the only ones wondering about this.
    That deal was done so fast it’s almost as if it was drawn up two weeks ago.

  29. Oh well pats fans don’t let this #deflategate you when Ahole, I mean AB throws his tantrums in New England.

  30. Gronk who????

    With targets like Antonio Brown and Josh Gordon – if they can stay out of trouble – plus Edelman, and second tier choices like Phillip Dorsett and DT, plus rookies Jakobi Meyers and N’Keal Harry, the only problem New England’s going to have is hoping Brady’s arm doesn’t fall off throwing so many passes!

    Tom Brady now has the strongest arsenal of receivers he’s ever had in his career. Nevermind a solid group of running backs (Sony Michel, James White, Rex Burkhead)

    Enjoy your retirement, Gronk. I think they’ve got you covered now.

  31. Hypocrites all. You all would be glad to have him on your team versus the mediocre receivers you probably have. He had an attitude problem and wanted to leave his job as many of us have wanted to do at some point. He went about it the wrong way. He didn’t pay a price for that he was getting $15.9 from Oakland this year instead he gets $15 million from the Patriots for one less game.This is what sports is today and not one team is a sacred cow. You have Kyrie quitting on the Celtics. Kawhi Leonard leaving after a championship. Don’t act like your team is holier than thou and just admit you hate New England being perennial winners and getting richer at this point.

    ————————————–
    The Raiders wanted to get rid of him. They had to wait for Brown’s guarantees to be voided. That’s why Mayock didn’t tell Brown he was getting fined, twice, after Brown thought things had been resolved. The Raiders counted on Brown acting the way he did to planted information by unnamed cough Mayock sources. It was so obvious the Raiders were making a record for future actions. The Raiders did what they wanted. The haters want to have it both ways. Vile comments about Brown how no team wants him then when the Pats sign him, something is up.

  35. For those defending Mr. Big Chest, saying at least he didn’t assault anyone, abuse a child, he’s only acting wacky, etc.: are you aware of some of his off-field incidents that rise above just posting weird videos on social media? Off the top of my head:

    1. His child’s mother filed a police report alleging he assualted and injured her. She did not ultimately press charges.
    2. Sued for throwing furniture (couch, ottoman), large vases, etc. off a 14th story balcony nearly hitting a toddler and his grandfather. Lucky he didn’t kill someone.
    Grandfather filed suit, they settled. Lawsuit filed by landlord for unpaid repairs from AB trashing the place.
    3. Reckless driving for going 100+ mph in a 45 mph zone. Lucky he didn’t kill someone.

    Sounds like a real upstanding citizen, right?

  36. Pats fans are just mailing it in trying to defend this one.

    And of course every fan would figure out a way to be happy if their team signed him. But I’d lay low. I wouldn’t come on here a day after calling any franchise who would sign him a joke and try to hype it up.

  37. He’ll either keep up with the BS that got him bounced from Oakland and get bounced outta New England so fast his head will spin, or he’ll behave well, BB will get the best out of him, and the Raiders will look like a joke at the end of all this.

    6 hours later and a good agent would have a proposed deal ready to go. It’s not rocket science the only thing really negotiated is the amount of the guarantee. It shows how much you “football people” really know.

  40. I’ve been a Patriots fan since the 70’s. I’m not a fan of this signing.
    There must be somethings going on behind the scenes because I can’t imagine Belichick putting up with Browns nonsense.

  41. Does anyone else find the narrative by numerous sports reporters pushing the idea of Brown to the pats even before his release suspicions?

  42. “Pats fans are just mailing it in trying to defend this one.”

    If you had read the comments here and on the thread about him signing with the Pats you would see many comments from myself and many other Pats fans who are not defending the signing and don’t like it.

    But hey, guess you’re just mailing it in bashing Pats fans with that comment

  43. Some team will sign AB but it would be nice to see him sit out and be done. I am way past diva NFL players. And they usually are WR’s like TO, OBj, AB, Chad Johnson, Keyshawn players I couldn’t stand.

  44. The Pats HAD to get AB, no choice. Because if they didn’t get him he’d be a JET. That is BB playing chess. He’d rather deal with him and take a shot at it working out.

  45. He knew the Patriots had interest in him for quite some time, that’s why he’s been doing these shenanigans. He immediately celebrated being released because he knew he was going to the #1 team, coach & QB. He wants to win and he wants the spotlight. It’ll be interesting to see how he acts going forward. Overall, it’s just bad for the NFL.

  46. ESPN is reporting that the expected market value of Antonio Brown has now decreased from the average price of a ham sammich (without cheese) to the price of a single McSluggit.

    This clown just doesn’t have any comprehension of reality. The Raiders took his shovel but AB continues to dig his own grave.

    He’s getting his second chance. It’s up to him if he wins or loses.

  54. Why do people think Randy moss didn’t work out in New England? He was an old man and was Key part of one of the best offenses in history (to that date). He worked out just fine and when the Pats were done with him they sent him on their way. AB only needs to behave for about 20 weeks for this to work out for the Pats. If not, they’ll cut him and Robert Kraft can whine about the money wasted, it won’t linger long enough to destroy the team.

  55. So fake and staged, what would be the icing on the cake is if the league steps in and says he suspended for breaking the NFL code of conduct rule when he threatened to beat up the General Manager of an NFL franchise…….???????
    Come on Roger lets see what you got???????

  56. I was wrong about AB being nutz. He is actually a genius. He got what he wanted all along but, it cost him 30 million in guaranteed money. Oops, ya he’s nutz!

    AB was a jerk, no question. But let’s not go overboard and compare him to somebody that committed murder.

  58. So does this mean you people that drafted him in your “fantasy league” are going to drop him or no? He is a Patriots player now and I for one hopes he has a great year. He’s a diva for sure but if you think he will tear the Patriots apart, well you haven’t been watching football for the past 20 years. He whines, complains, crys.. Reminds me of you… But unlike you he is a Patriots player. Get used to it.

    At no point in your rambling, incoherent post were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this thread is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul

  60. I’d like to see the terms of his contract. If he doesn’t cut out the nonsense I’m sure the Pats can get rid of him for cause with AB forfeiting money. I think AB is so nuts that he wants to be the most hated player in the NFL. Well, he’s accomplished that so he may as well shut up and play.

  61. In all seriousness, how do the Patriots sign him that fast? With how the situation in Oakland went nuclear, how does any franchise do a real job of evaluating the situation without even sitting sown with the guy. Brown could not even get there in 6 hours, so at best, they had a video conference. No way that should suffice for a coach supposedly as astute as Belichek. On the flip side, does Risenhaus have time to negotiate a contract with the Patriots, explain it to his client and get alignment on all the legalities of it after he “just list 30 million” in guarantees? I’m not a conspiracy theorist in the least, bit this just feels like it was orchestrated, and if AB is a suddenly a model citizen, no way do I believe that BB just suddenly got him to steer straight. It’s one thing when free agents sign deals within minutes of when free agency opens, and there’s an unwritten understanding that guys are going to be free agents when the clock runs out on their current deal, but for this to happen this fast without some amount of tampering just does not pass the sniff test.

  62. I doubt that AB will be pulling his antics, he’s not playing for a fraud like gruden who is only about his sound bites and ego.
    Belichick on the other hand won’t hesitate to toss AB if he shows any aggravation. As I said in another post, Belichick is the NFL’s answer to General Mattis.

  63. Heck of a coincidence that he just happened have a camera on him for that not-at-all staged moment.

  64. Brown is an idiot first and foremost. He is obviously an incredible talent and I enjoyed watching him play for the black and gold. However, these moronic decisions he has made has been validated and condoned by the Patriots. I’m pretty sure that his scumbag agent D.R. had this in the works for weeks. Piss off the Raiders as much as you want, push them to the brink but don’t worry, we have a plan …. the Pats have said they’ll take you. And the sad thing is, this idiot got away with it. As much respect as I for the Patriots and their incredible success, I have to say that this sends the wrong message to the entire league…. act look a fool, a petulant little boy no less, and get rewarded.

  65. Edelman + Gordon + Thomas + Brown + Meyers + Harry + Dorsett + Sony + White + Harris + Burkhead + Develin.. With Brady deciding… No mercy needed for me.. Your favorite teams on the other hand are going to need all they can get. I just wish I knew all you haters in real life. Enjoy being mathematically eliminated again this year.

    ______________________________________________________________________________

    If it was his plan get released from Pit/Oak all along so that he could choose his next team on his terms, then how is he an idiot? He certainly acted like an idiot, but he achieved exactly what he apparently wanted.

  67. I only care about the product on the field. If he doesn’t produce, he will be cut. Simple as that. It will be an entertaining season for sure. As a non Pats fan, they however always provide the best entertainment. Love it!

  68. I’m sick of hearing about him. Guy acts like a class A you know what, and gets rewarded by being signed by one of the best teams in the NFL….its absurd

  69. Brown had no say in his trade to Oakland. That is equivalent to someone in Moscow being sent to Siberia for the Winter. AB and Rosenhaus orchestrated the release from Oakland then Belichick pounced before anyone else was able to.

    Last March, the Patriots offered Pittsburgh a “first rounder” for Brown and the Steelers thumbed their nose at them. Well, they got something like a 4th and 5th from Oakland which is something. But…………….the Patriots lost nothing and are even in line for a compensatory pick if Brown goes the FA route next year. Tell me Belichick isn’t smart. And he knew how badly Brown wanted to come to NE so things worked out for everyone except the Raiders. I think Tomlin mighta choked on his poached eggs this morning 🙂

    I totally agree with your post, ontariosteelerfan. I am glad you said it so I don’t have to. Brown acted like a five year old before his release, received what he wanted, and then continues to act like a 13 year old girl posting on twitter and facebook all the time. I think the PATS picking this jerk up reflects poorly on the shield. I also see a clear distinction between this move, from a totally classy organization, as compared with some of their other more controversial moves. Corey Dillon was upset with his contract, and the Pats squeezed out more All-pro games from him. Moss stunk it up in Oakland, until he went to the Pats, followed their program to the letter, and excelled when everyone thought he was done. Even though Moss was no angel at the time, he still didn’t pull the crap Antonio pulled. Witnessing Brown’s behavior over this summer was completely disgusting. I was on the verge of boycotting the season. I think Brown will flame out quickly in New England, because his childish antics won’t be tolerated for a single instant. The truth is, Antonio, you aren’t that great, despite your numbers. The great players are professionals. Don’t want to practice? Why? It is in your freaking contract. People that don’t practice have a greater risk of…everyone say it together…INJURY! That is why the pros take conditioning their bodies so seriously. Giving nine million guaranteed to someone that 1) quit on his teammates in Pittsburg 2) quit on his teammates in Oakland, then had a temper tantrum and screamed racist, profane language and verbally threatened the Raiders general manager, shows us all that AB is NOT a professional and could give a rat’s ass about the CBA or the integrity of the shield. Why Goodell hasn’t suspended this loose psycho is beyond me. It is hard to have respect for the NFL shield when I see stuff like this happen. I just wish there were players like Dick Butkus that would drop this crybaby on his head and then kick his ass out of the locker room or stick him headfirst into the trashcan. I hope New England gets bitten on this move. The truth is this: AB is no Corey Dillon, and he is no Randy Moss. I expect him to flame out in NE and then do what he has secretly wanted to do since week seventeen of last season: RETIRE. AB quit back then, and once a quitter starts giving up, he’ll never commit to the game again. Go ahead and retire AB. Most of America will NOT miss your sorry ass. Take your new millions, have pillow parties with twitter and Instagram until your little heart’s is content. Even T.O. thinks you’re an unprofessional nutcase. BB, bounce this guy out of the league. He isn’t worth it.
