ALAMEDA, Calif. " The Oakland Raiders released disgruntled star receiver on Saturday before he ever played a game for the team. The Raiders made the move just hours after Brown requested his release in the latest turn in a dramatic first summer with the team. Brown was upset about his latest team fine over an outburst at practice at general manager Mike Mayock. That fine allowed the Raiders to void more than $29 million in guarantees over the next two years in Brown's contract. Oakland instead decided to cut ties entirely. The Raiders had been counting heavily Brown after trading a third and fifth-round pick to Pittsburgh for the game's most prolific receiver in March. They also gave him a new three-year contract worth $50.1 million that now is void following the release.
Lot of drama in this one .... I think he is now an unrestricted free-agent, and working on getting some of his money back from the Raiders.
