Antonio Brown's grievance against Raiders hindered by text messages

"Brown managed to leave under poor terms with the Raiders and Patriots, including lashing out at owners and others on social media and filing numerous grievances to try to recoup $30 million million in lost salary".

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, as part of discovery, the Raiders turned text messages over indicating that Brown asked owner Mark Davis for his release multiple times.

The Raiders, who acquired Brown in trade from the Steelers in March, obliged him on September 7.

The Raiders released the former Pittsburgh Steelers standout receiver on September 7, and he signed with New England.

This grievance isn't that simple, and Brown could still get what he wants.

Brown also has been named in a civil lawsuit filed by Britney Taylor, his former trainer, in which she says Brown sexually assaulted her twice in 2017 and forcibly raped her in 2018.

Oakland complied with Brown's request on September 7, shortly after the 31-year-old said he wouldn't play because the Raiders voided his guarantees.

"League sources said that numerous teams are keeping a close eye on Antonio Brown, and a return to the NFL after the trade deadline would not come as a surprise".
