Report: Raiders planning on suspending Antonio Brown after confrontation with GM Mike Mayock

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers have to be sitting back and just chuckling to themselves...

NFL: Preseason-Green Bay Packers at Oakland Raiders Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

I am breaking a promise with myself as I type this story. I had told myself I wouldn’t write any articles pertaining to the two big-name players who officially left the Pittsburgh Steelers this past offseason for different reasons.

Yes, those two players were none other than Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown.

I remained quiet as Brown’s feet became headline news. I didn’t write when Brown filed multiple grievances with the league over his inability to use an out-dated helmet. I also kept to myself as Bell made silly comments in both rap lyrics and to the media about his time in Pittsburgh.

But on Thursday, Brown did something I couldn’t just read and move on. Not this time.

The player the Steelers sent to the Raiders for a 3rd and 5th round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft is facing a potential suspension with the Raiders after getting into a “confrontation” with General Manager Mike Mayock.

This is what we know now:

All of this news must have Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert sitting back and just grinning from ear to ear. Not that they are happy this is going on, but that the headache is far away from the 412 area code.

Field Yates of ESPN put it best...

At this point, Steelers fans can use the comment section below to talk about Brown’s situation he finds himself in, and know this article will be updated with any news surrounding this story.
