The Oakland Raiders may be ready to forgive and forget. Antonio Brown may not be suspended after all. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the receiver could actually suit up and play Monday night rather than being suspended, as had been reported extensively around the league on Thursday.
This report comes on the heels of Brown issuing “an emotional apology” at a team meeting Friday morning, as reported by Josina Anderson of ESPN.
Brown was in hot water with the organization after threatening to hit general manager Mike Mayock and calling him a derogatory slur over a disagreement about fines issued for missing practices.
Oakland has maintained that it would like to see Brown contribute on the field throughout the summer, even as drama has swirled. Most recently, following the news of the incident with Mayock, Brown unfollowed the Raiders and quarterback Derek Carr on social media.
Now, apparently all is being mended inside Oakland’s locker room. Though, given his recent history in Pittsburgh and now with the Raiders, we’re not holding our breath that this is all over.
