AB is once again in the headlines! I know we sound like a broken record on this whole AB saga but have we finally seen the end of it? AB reportedly met with the Raiders today and gave what is being described as an “emotional apology” and the other Raider’s captains stood by AB and showed their support. Now while this may seem genuine don’t put anything past AB at this point. From the trade demands in Pittsburgh, to the helmet fiasco, to threatening his GM, and now this commercial.
There still has to be a lot of buyers remorse from the Raiders and we now know there is going to be an immediate rift between head coach Jon Gruden and general manager Mike Mayock. Reports from yesterday and early this morning were that GM Mayock was ready to cut ties and move on from Brown completely. Having AB on the field is ultimately what’s best for business as he is one of the very best at his position in the league.
Questions are going to loom over the Raiders organization for the foreseeable future. Should they have suspended Brown? I can tell you Raiders fans and Derek Carr are happy he will be on the field.
In another surprising move, AB just posted a video on his IG account about how is more than just a football player. During this video was a conversation he recorded of himself and Jon Gruden.
Jon Gruden was said to be amused by this and just wants his star wideout on the field cathcing balls and scoring touchdowns.
Brown will suit up for the Raiders Monday night against the Broncos.
