Needless to say, most players wouldn’t have the same reaction as Antonio Brown when they get the news they have been released.
Proving that everything in this saga is a plea for attention, Brown posted a video of the moment he found out — apparently via the news on his phone and not a call from the Raiders, which might have ended up on YouTube — that he had been released. Brown ran out of his house screaming in celebration.
There is some explicit language in the video:
The video went right onto his verified YouTube page, right next to the video of his phone call with Jon Gruden from Friday night.
“They freed me grandma!” Brown said into the phone, on the video. “God is the greatest.”
Brown was officially free for about an hour when he was signed by the New England Patriots. While it’s hard to believe Brown somehow masterminded the whole scenario, he obviously landed on his feet. And he was clearly happy to be done with the Raiders.
