Concussed.

 

AB quit on Steelers.  He wanted out of there.  Why would the Raiders think he would not want to play for them?

Why would a team think "if he's willing to quit on one team why wouldn't he quit on us?" is that what you're asking?

 

Morse got a concussion trying to do his job, AB gave himself frostbite and then didn't want to play without his old helmet.

 

I'm thinking we got the better deal on this one.

Maybe because he just quit on a better Franchise, GM, Coach, QB & supporting cast? Why wouldn't he do it again with much, much less?

It was actually not frostbite. Closer to trench foot. 

 

Trench foot is a medical condition caused by prolonged exposure of the feet to damp, unsanitary, and cold conditions. It is one of many immersion foot syndromes. The use of the word trench in the name of this condition is a reference to trench warfare, mainly associated with World War I.

Minor frostbite can cause the symptoms we all (unfortunately) saw on the bottom of his feet as well. No necrosis, but the blistering seen is common. 

 

But - you may be on to something as well. I’m not familiar with high-end, expensive cryo therapy he supposedly engaged in. It could be a combination of both.

Odd behavior and a lack of commitment from "Mr. Big Chest" quitter wasn't predictable?

 

And maybe he doesn't want to end up like Morse.  Fine, then retire and pay the money back.  At least Morse is still trying to be like Morse...

If he doesn't want to end up like Morse why is he choosing helmets that keep failing tests?

Mayock to Antonio Brown: Time 'to be all-in or all-out'

Antonio Brown missed practice again, and it was because of his helmet, again.

Just 24 hours after participating in the Raiders' walkthrough, the wide receiver did not attend Oakland's workout in Napa, California. General manager Mike Mayock delivered a stern message afterward -- which the team issued itself on Twitter -- regarding Brown's absence.

"You all know that A.B. is not here today," Mayock said. "So, here's the bottom line. He's upset about the helmet issue. We have supported that, we appreciate that. OK? But at this point we've pretty much exhausted all avenues of relief. So from our perspective, it's time for him to be all-in or all-out. OK? So we're hoping he's back soon. We got 89 guys busting their tails. We are really excited about where this franchise is going, and we hope A.B.'s going to be a big part of it, starting Week 1 against Denver. End of story No questions. OK? Just wanted you guys to know where we were."

Thank god we avoided this clown 

 

I actually like the guy now. It was a done deal to Buffalo then he opened his mouth. He saved Buffalo a lot of money & problems.

We dodged a bullet here. I don't care if he has a 1000 yard season, not worth the headache.

What if AB plays and Morse doesn't?

Both of you need to go back and review the saga of the Steelers and AB at the end.

 

Also, it should be obvious that other teams, including the Bills, would have signed him (for a certain price)--and therefore were not concerned he would "quit" on them too....

 

Bell quit on the Steelers as well.

AB is a great player but also exhausting, and addicted to attention. He never escaped the toddler years.

Hard to imagine that AB's antics are already wearing thin HAHAHA

 

I hated the idea of the Bills trading for him, and it looks like AB refusing to come here or whatever happened was a BLESSING!!!!! 

 

I love that the Raiders are spiraling out of control, and I look forward to the next chapter in this saga....

 

I almost expect Brown to demand a trade or release because he doesn't like the way Mayock is talking about him HAHAHAHA sounds like something this drama queen would do!

Yeah, everyone is familiar with his saga on the Steelers. And he had few suitors as a result. The Bills were likely only offering a small amount of guaranteed money just in case he pulled what he did with the Steelers/what he’s pulling with the Raiders now.

Bell quit on the Steelers as well  

 

And he’s the Jets’ problem. Like Brown and the Raiders, better them than us.

So nice, you had to say it twice.

 

Anyway, AB's price is what held up any chance he would become a Bill.  Factoring in some sort of "agita index" into the price is something you made up and likely did not happen.  Bottom line, for the preferred price, Beane wanted AB on this roster---warts and all.

 

I mentioned Bell because, a year before AB quit on the same team, he walked away from "a better team/coach/roster".   The same team, in fact...
