Brown balks at team fines

The Associated PressALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Star receiver Antonio Brown said the Oakland Raiders have fined him close to $54,000 for missing a practice and walkthrough.

Brown posted a letter on his Instagram account from GM Mike Mayock on Wednesday saying that he was fined $40,000 for an unexcused absence from practice on Aug. 18 and $13,950 for skipping a walkthrough in Winnipeg on Aug. 22.

Brown has had an eventful first season with Oakland. He missed significant time in training camp with frostbite to his feet suffered in a cryotherapy accident in France, and has been feuding with the NFL over his helmet.
