It’s official, Antonio Brown has signed with the New England Patriots. The Antonio Brown saga took an interesting turn over the weekend and saw the player, who was expected to start for the Oakland Raiders on Monday Night Football signing with the defending Super Bowl champions after being released by the Raiders on Saturday.

Firstly, Brown asked to be released by the Raiders in an Instagram post earlier Saturday. Oakland had fined him $215,073.53 for conduct detrimental to the New England Patriots. In addition, after he got into an altercation with general manager Mike Mayock he was fined. The move voided the $29.125 million of guaranteed money in Brown’s deal.

“I’ll just tell you that the Patriots are obviously a very solid, strong organization,” said Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus, who also represented now-retired Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, for instance. “They do things the Patriots Way. Everyone is expected to be accountable. They don’t make any exceptions. I’ve discussed this with Antonio. And he wants to be a Patriot. He’s prepared to go there, fit in, work hard, be like every other player on the team, do what’s asked of him, do his job and make it work. He’s honored with the opportunity and he’s looking forward to taking advantage of it.”

“Antonio had a robust free-agent market and certainly had a lot of options,” Rosenhaus said. “But it was hard to compete with New England Patriots and that amazing opportunity, that great franchise, and play with one of the all-time greats, Tom Brady, and Bill Belichick.”

In conclusion, the Patriots are 6-1 favorites to win Super Bowl 2020.
