The latest NFL soap opera star Antonio Brown has surprised us yet again, this time demanding to be released from his $50 million contract with the Oakland Raiders.Antonio spelled it out in an Instagram post on Saturday morning, saying "Release me @Raiders #NOMore."
He also posted a pic of a quote ... "You are gonna piss a lot of people off when you start doing what's best for you."
Here's what triggered the craziness. Late Friday night, the Raiders decided to fine Brown $215k for conduct detrimental to the team over an altercation with GM Mike Mayock on Sept. 4. The way the story goes ... Brown exploded on Mayock, allegedly threatening to sock him in the face while calling him a "cracker." Brown's outrage stemmed from a previous $15k fine for missing team workouts.
