According to multiple outlets, the Raiders have officially released Antonio Brown.

After a week that involved several twists and turns, the Raiders granted Antonio Brown's request and released the receiver on Saturday.

Raiders took away the guaranteed money in Brown's deal and fined him more than $200,000 on Friday. Brown reacted about as well as you would expect, asking the Raiders for his release on Instagram on Saturday morning. 

After driving his way out of Pittsburgh, Oakland acquired his services for 2019 third and fifth round picks. He then negotiated a new deal that was set to pay him $50.13 million over the next three years with $30.13 million guaranteed. Of course, that money Brown will never see.

Brown immediately becomes a free agent, able to sign with any team. The next question becomes whether any other team will want him after all this went on.
