Antonio Brown files grievances, seeking over 40 Million from former NFL Teams

The NFL Players Association has filed grievances against the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots on behalf of unemployed wide receiver Antonio Brown, who is seeking millions from the teams.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Brown is asking for more than $40 million in salary, fines and voided guarantees.

Trouble started after the Raiders released Brown before the season started upon his request. He signed immediately with the Patriots, who later cut ties with him following allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

According to Rapoport, Brown seeks $30 million from the Raiders, including guarantees from 2019 and 2020 totaling $29 million, along with a $1 million signing bonus, $860,294 for a week of salary and $215,000 in fines

In addition, his grievance seeks a $9 million signing bonus from the Patriots, along with $1 million in base salary and $64,062 for a Week 1 check.

The 31-year-old played just one game this season, a Week 2 win for the Patriots against the Miami Dolphins. He is a free agent and currently under investigation by the NFL.

The league is looking into circumstances surrounding a civil lawsuit accusing him of rape and sexual assault
