Report: Raiders plan to suspend WR Antonio Brown

The drama surrounding Antonio Brown does not appear to have an end.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Brown and General Manager Mike Mayock “got into it” on Wednesday and the team is planning to suspend Brown as a result.

Fantasy Impact: 

Brown apparently posted a letter to social media from Mayock informing Brown he would be fined for missing a practice and a walkthrough last month. While things had been good between Brown and the team since then, posting this letter touched off another chapter of the feud, according to reports.

Right now, no one seems to know if the suspension is one game, multiple games or just part of Week 1's contest ... or even if ends up not being true. We'll continue to monitor, but this is potentially turning ugly again for Brown's fantasy owners. Williams would see a bump in value for Week 1 if Brown is in fact out, with Renfrow and Nelson also moving up.

Schefter has since added there are those around the league who feel the team will try to suspend Brown with the idea of voiding his $30.125 million of guaranteed money in his contract, which would quickly end his time in Oakland.
