Chiefs’ Jeff Allen has strong reaction to Antonio Brown’s trade to Raiders
Somebody’s mad as hell! Antonio Brown and his signing with the Oakland Raiders has delighted most people, but Jeff Allen isn’t most people.
AB just disrupted a system that’s designed for us to contractually lose in. If you hate it then hate what the other side does everyday

While a full outpouring of support has seemed to emerge for Brown’s move out West to the Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs guard Jeff Allen seemed to be less than supportive. Or, perhaps he was just grateful that the Chiefs didn’t have to deal with Brown and his very dramatic lifestyle.
Allen isn’t the only one who has thrown shade at Brown and his move to the Raiders.
According to Fox Sports, DeAngelo Hall has said that it will take a “special team” to put up with Antonio Brown.
For the most part, however, everyone seems to be supportive of the fact that Brown is now a Raider instead of a Steeler, since it marks the conclusion of a rather tumultuous time for all involved.
After allegedly getting into an argument with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, then skipping practices leading up to the Week 17 game against the Cincinnati Bengals last season, Brown was benched for that game. Following the season, reports surfaced indicating Brown’s dissatisfaction with his role on the Steelers, and he eventually requested a trade. Just after midnight on Sunday, March 10, the Steelers agreed to a trade that will send Brown to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a third- and fifth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
It looks like this Antonio Brown trade — despite Jeff Allen’s protestations — is working out well for all involved, including Brown himself. Good for him for finally finding his place.
