Antonio Brown was been quiet over the last week or so. Too quiet.

The lightning rod receiver finally reappeared in the news when he filed a grievance against the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots, both of whom employed Brown over the last few months and subsequently released him due to either his petulant behavior or his pending sexual assault charges.

Now, Brown is seeking to recoup $40 million in guarantees that were voided upon his release, but AB will have to bide his time until a decision comes, however, as this case will not be heard until the spring.

It's going to be hard to recoup any sort of compensation from Oakland, as Brown's laundry list of embarrassing behavior is enough for any employer to argue they had just cause to let him go.

While his grievance against the Patriots, who did not pay the first installment of his $9 million signing bonus before he was released, will at least have somewhat of a chance in court, Brown is foolish if he is expecting to win any significant sum of money in tis whole affair.

While Brown has been unemployed since the second week of the season, the star wideout continues to make headlines, and he's hoping to secure the big pay day he missed out on due to his antics.
