Antonio Brown reportedly sought advice from social media consultants on strategies to get released from Oakland Raiders, which transpired over the weekend. Brown caused an uproar on social media that culminated with the wide receiver posting a private conversion with coach Jon Gruden on his YouTube channel.

According to sources, “Antonio Brown, during the week, actually sought advice from social media consultants on how he can accelerate his release from the Raiders. This all started with him releasing the letter from [General Manager] Mike Mayock that he was being fined. He put that out on social media which led to the confrontation.” 

According to ESPN, the Patriots offered Pittsburg a first-round pick for Brown before he was sent to the Raiders, but the offer was rejected. It seems like Brown and the Patriots didn’t give up on the deal and now, the two parties are together after all.
