Reports are he called his GM a “cracker” to go along with threatening to punch him in the face https://www.yahoo.co...-155206535.html
And now the Raiders are considering not suspending him

That need to suspend him and go after the guarantees.

Is this still because he couldn't wear his 10 year old helmet?

Um, a number of "crackers" were people of color.  A cracker was a cattle herder who cracked a whip to move the animals.

outside of ga and fl it has become a racial slur starting in the 60s with Malcolm x. It think the first use was the ballots or bullets speech

Are you really thinking that he wasn't calling him a cracker because of his race?   I doubt Brown would call a black man a cracker.

He was fined for missing a practice and a walk through. He posted the letter on Instagram with some weird statement. Mayock wasn’t happy as that stuff should stay in house and they got in an argument where Brown lost it.

He meant it racially.

If they play him Monday and don't suspend him, it's tacit allowance to act however he wants.

Have a nice season Raiderds!  :D

I'm sure they don't mind having arguably the best WR in football.

They're probably not excited that he's a prima donna hothead, tho.

He is one of the best still, I’d argue Julio Jones and Hopkins are better right now. He wanted out of Pitt because they don’t like to guarantee more than 1 season Oakland gave him the money and he kept it up. First the frostbite, then the helmet stuff, skipping practice, posting the fines on social media and now the fight with his GM. Now that it looks like he is getting away with it, he will likely get worse. Not worth the headache as they are not a good team in a tough division.
Davis probably stepped in as he wants to have a decent team on the way to Vegas next season.
