Kyle’s update 2:05: Welp. Brown is a Pat.

What a wild ride. The Oakland Raiders released WR Antonio Brown Saturday morning. This came after the team fined Brown $215,000 for detrimental conduct, which voided Brown’s $30 million in guarantees. Brown reportedly cursed at GM Mike Mayock, and punted a football saying, “fine me for that.” Oakland did just that. On Friday, all was well. Jon Gruden said Brown was going to play on Monday Night. Brown issued an emotional apology in front of teammates. Brown even released this incredibly well-produced video saying he wants to be a Raider.

Oh, how things can change. Brown requested his release this morning and was granted his wish. Brown isn’t subject to waivers and is free to sign with any team he pleases. Plenty of people are connecting Brown to the New England Patriots, who always seem to give veteran star players that were castoffs another chance.

I wouldn’t rule out Seattle. They need wide receiver help and have the cap space to do it. There is another team in the Bay Area that has cap space, could always use more firepower, and showed interest in Brown this past offseason. Would you be okay with Brown signing with the Seahawks? Would you be interested in Brown, despite the circus? I would. Brown would help the 49ers, but it also keeps Brown away from other contenders.

Richard Sherman and George Kittle lobbied for Brown this past March.

I’m a fan of chaos, so sign me up.
