Rosenhaus said that Brown is ready to put all of this behind him, and build a good relationship with the Raiders, and just play football.
Rosenhaus also said that Brown and Jon Gruden have a good relationship, but didn’t seem to want to comment on his relationship with Mike Mayock. Via Bleacher Report.
“I’m not going to get into his relationship with Mike Mayock, but I will say that we’re hopeful that that will be a good one as well. It has been in the past; it can be in the future. Listen, the NFL is a workplace and in workplace environments, not everything is perfect. And Antonio is a new player on this football team and we’re trying to make it a very good relationship across the board.”
The problem for Brown is that it doesn’t seem to be in his control anymore if he will get to play for the Raiders. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported the Raiders are still weighing their options if they want to suspend him and attempt to void the $30.25 million that is guaranteed in his contract.
The Raiders play on Monday night football against the Denver Broncos, so the team doesn’t have long to decide what they want to do. If the team invites him back, it sounds like Brown will join the team and be ready to go.
