There is "no way" Antonio Brown plays for the Oakland Raiders, the wide receiver told ESPN's Jeff Darlington in an email Saturday.

Brown told Darlington the team "took away my (contract) guarantees" and added, "no way I play after they took that and made my contract week to week."

The Raiders fined Brown more than $215,000 for conduct detrimental to the team, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Saturday.

By fining Brown, the Raiders voided the $29.125 million worth of guaranteed money in his deal, sources said.

In addition, the Raiders sent Brown a letter that he no longer will be entitled to termination pay in the event that they release him, sources said.

The clown show continues. I feel bad for the Raiders fans, but for the rest of us this is some good daily entertainment.
