That was the case once again on Thursday after reports broke that the Raiders were thinking about suspending Brown due to an altercation that almost got physical between Brown and Raiders' general manager Mike Mayock.

ESPN first reported the news of a potential discipline. Once activated in late July, Brown repeatedly expressed frustration with his inability to wear his old helmet due to the model being deemed unsafe league-wide with Brown even threatening to retire over it.

"Our goal is to salvage this relationship", Rosenhaus said on NFL Network, via NFL Media's Ian Rapoport. According to reports, AB told Mayock that he would hit him in the face and then punted a ball, telling the GM to fine him for that. On Wednesday, Brown shared a photo of the letter informing him of the fines on his Instagram story and criticized the Raiders over it.

Brown wasn't pleased with the letter, judging by his response.

Chinese officials say they've been told six tourists were killed, although police have yet to confirm a number. About five other bystanders were helping, before first responders arrived, Mr Basnet said.

The pass-catcher was fined $13,950 for missing Oakland's walk-through on August 22 and $40,000 for missing a training-camp practice on August 18. 'When your own team want to hate but there's no stopping me now devil is a lie, ' he wrote in the caption.

After losing a pair of grievances, Brown settled on a model made by Xenith, and announced the decision Wednesday on Instagram, with the words: 'Helmet drama over'.

Brown has been a constant headache for the Raiders since he arrived in Oakland as part of a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers in March. He appeared in 130 games with Pittsburgh from 2010-18, catching 837 passes for 11,207 yards and 74 touchdowns.
