Antonio Brown wants his money.

Having previously endured six weeks of freaky behavior (to put it nicely) out of Brown, the Raiders obliged nearly immediately when Brown requested his release and watched their star receiver sign with the Patriots just hours later.

The workout comes days after the NFL Player's Association reportedly filed a grievance on his behalf, seeking $40 million from the Patriots and Raiders in unpaid salary, fines and unpaid guarantees. He signed immediately with the Patriots, who cut ties with him after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced.

Brown's appeal likely won't be heard by an arbitrator until spring, and he's facing "a major uphill battle" to win his case, added Rapoport.

New Hampshire reports 1st vaping-related lung injury
As of October 1, the CDC reports there have been 18 deaths in 15 states involving lung injuries associated with vaping. MA health officials are reporting the state's first death from a vaping-related lung injury.

From the Raiders, Brown wants a week's salary of $860,294, about $215,000 in fines, contract guarantees of $29 million and a $1 million signing bonus, Rapoport outlined.

Then, with the Patriots, there's the unpaid Week 1 salary of $64,062, the rest of the $1.025 million that was his guaranteed base salary, and a $9 million signing bonus that was never paid.

The grievances officially were filed Friday afternoon. He also texted intimidating messages to the accusers.

Brown was released by the Patriots after being named the subject of an National Football League investigation for rape and sexual assault.
