Mayock to Antonio Brown: Time ‘to be all-in or all-out’
Antonio Brown uncared for prepare again, and it was thanks to his helmet, again.
Perfect 24 hours after taking portion in the Raiders’ walkthrough, the massive receiver did no longer lend a hand Oakland’s workout in Napa, California. General manager Mike Mayock delivered a stern message afterward — which the group issued itself on Twitter — concerning Brown’s absence.
“You all know that A.B. is no longer here these days,” Mayock said. “So, here is the underside line. He’s upset about the helmet enviornment. Now we have supported that, we fancy that. OK? But at this point we have heavenly great exhausted all avenues of relief. So from our point of view, it’s miles time for him to be all-in or all-out. OK? So we’re hoping he is help soon. We got 89 guys busting their tails. We’re in fact thinking about the build this franchise is going, and we hope A.B.’s going to be a large portion of it, starting Week 1 against Denver. Pause of yarn No questions. OK? Perfect wanted you guys to know the build we had been.”
It is one other about-face in a saga that’s been stuffed with them. Brown was some distance flung from the group for nearly all of camp thanks to his desire to use his old helmet model that’s no longer correct in the NFL. The All-Pro wideout has moreover been hampered by frostbitten toes after no longer wearing factual shoes whereas the utilization of a cryogenic chamber.
A day after his criticism to use the old helmet was denied, Brown returned to Napa final Tuesday.
“Whereas I disagree with the arbitrator’s resolution, I’m working on getting help to corpulent effectively being and looking ahead to rejoining my teammates on the self-discipline,” he wrote on Twitter final week. “I’m thinking about this season fancy the general issues about my toes!”
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that Brown was “very stop to practising,” as he accompanied his recent group to Arizona for its preseason sport against the Cardinals. He was easy with them as of Saturday. Sunday, because it has normally been, was a particular yarn, this time with his current manager apparently issuing an ultimatum to the player he traded for factual just a few months help and subsequently signed to a $50 million deal: Be here or be gone.
