You don't bite the hand that feeds you. The Oakland Raiders have just RELEASED the star WR -- after a nightmare offseason that culminated in Brown allegedly threatening to attack general manager Mike Mayock.
The Raiders just announced the move moments ago ... so far, no comment from Antonio Brown but ya gotta think he's gonna say something soon. Brown is now technically a free agent and can sign with any team. He would eligible to play as early as Week 2. Adjust your fantasy lineups accordingly.
It seems releasing Brown will save the Raiders from having to pay a penny from the 3 year, $50 MILLION contract they inked with ab this offseason.
