Raiders hit ‘snooze’ button on Antonio Brown; he’ll play on MNF against Broncos

New, comments

The Oakland Raiders might as well rename themselves to the Oakland Antonio Browns at this point.

These are the Days of our Lives, staring Antonio Brown and the Oakland Raiders. With $30 million at stake, Brown apologized and Jon Gruden let bygones be bygones. In the process, Mike Mayock is literally looking like a guy with no respect and no say in any decision. Good times!

Sometimes when its too early to wake up, you just have to hit that snooze button a few times.

Then you end up late for work and fired.

After missing most of preseason and racking up fines - which I assume are going away now to placate their VIP player - the Raiders have welcomed Brown back into the fold and will play against the Denver Broncos.

This might change things a little, but with all those reps skipped, it would be hard to see Brown have a big game against a defense of Denver’s caliber. There could be some extra motivation from Brown, so we’ll just have to see how it works out.

Until the next circus event arrives in Oakland, its game on between the Raiders and Broncos.
