Brown's demand to be released was related to the Raiders informing him that they were revoking the guarantees of a large portion of his contract based on his conduct and the language in the deal, according to a person familiar with the situation. Via an Instagram post, AB said "I have worked my whole life to prove that the system is blind to see talent like mines".
The fact remains that the Raiders traded for Brown this offseason and increased his contract for the next three years to $50.125 million, with $30.125 million guaranteed. Simply put, with many fans questioning the Jags' receivers corps adding Brown into the mix would be one of the best upgrades the team could get.
Gruden told reporters earlier Friday he expected Brown to play Monday in the Raiders' opener after Brown apologized to the team for his blowup with Mayock. I don't have any more information for you right now.
Over the past two season, the Raiders have been led in receiving yards by their tight end, and they have a good one in place for 2019 in Darren Waller. If you want a refresher, back in March, the Bills made an attempt to trade for Brown when the Pittsburgh Steelers made him available.
The media naturally asked Gruden about the move and how he feels about Brown. You're a great football player.
Brown's numbers warrant a visit if he's cut by the Raiders.
The Chiefs are also pretty well set on offense, especially at wide receiver. They should just see how this season plays out and try to draft or sign a receiver in the draft although that appears to be easier said than done.

But that would have become a point of contention if the NFLPA had filed a grievance on Brown's behalf.
However, since that point the Raiders' new wide receiver has had one of the more weird summers which included suffering severe frostbite from a cryotherapy treatment, arriving to training camp in a hot air balloon and a fight with the National Football League in regards to the helmet he could wear. Although Brown says he wants to do whatever he can to improve a team, he has come off as a selfish player who has ultimately hindered the team he has been on.
Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus told Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio that he's working to salvage the relationship between his client and the Raiders.
The 31-year-old does not have to clear waivers and is free to sign with any team as an unrestricted free agent, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.
"I'm emotional about it, hope you understand why", Gruden said.
The previous night, just a few hours after Gruden welcomed Brown back to the team, Brown released a YouTube video that contained a recording of a conversation the wide receiver had with Gruden.
