Report: Antonio Brown Screams At Raiders GM, Threatens To Hit Him In The Face

OAKLAND (KDKA) -- After tensions with his new team, Antonio Brown is facing a suspension from the Raiders.

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter broke the news on Twitter Thursday afternoon.

"The Next Chapter: Antonio Brown and GM Mike Mayock got into it Wednesday, and the team is now planning to suspend its star wide receiver, league sources tell ESPN."

"Antonio Brown posted the fine letter on social media that Raiders' GM Mike Mayock sent him. It led to an exchange, which is now leading to further discipline. This is not going away anytime soon."

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the Raiders are not planning to have Brown for the opening week of the season.

"It's not clear if it's a suspension or if he'll be merely inactive," he said on Twitter.

In a press conference on Thursday with reports, Mayock said Brown is not going to be practicing Thursday and did not comment on the reports of a suspension.

Brown posted a letter from general manager Mike Mayock on Instagram yesterday outlining thousands of dollars in fines levied on the star wideout for missing practices and a walk-through.
