Antonio Brown has had enough with the Oakland Raiders. He has asked for his release from the team in an Instagram post.

”And that’s fine,” Brown said in the post. “I have worked my whole life to prove that the system is blind to see talent like mines. Now that everyone sees it, they want me to conform to that same system that has failed me all those years.

”I’m not mad at anyone. I’m just asking for the freedom to prove them all wrong. Release me @Raiders #NOMore #NoMoreFake #theyputblindersonahorseforareason.”

He was hit with a $215,073.53 fine for conduct detrimental to the team on Sept. 4, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. This voided Brown’s $29.125 million in guaranteed money.

In addition, the Raiders reportedly sent him an email saying he would not get “termination” pay if he is released. With this move, don’t expect the disgruntled wide receiver to play on Monday Night Football against the Denver Broncos.

One day ago, it appeared like Brown was welcomed back by the Raiders. He reportedly apologized to his teammates in a team meeting.

This led Jon Gruden to say that Brown would play against the Broncos.

In a secret recording in Brown’s YouTube video released on Friday night, Gruden asked Brown to cut it out. He also said to Brown, “Do you want to be a Raider?”

Brown replied and asked, “Do you want me to be a Raider?”

This saga has been going on for two months. With all of the drama that Brown has caused since he last played in the NFL, it’s very unlikely some team may take on this headache again despite his high-level talent.
