Antonio Brown files grievances, seeking more than $40M

Recommended Posts

Good Idea, sue your employer while looking for work with the same league.

 

How many nails are there in a coffin?

With AB, the 32 teams probably prefer 3” decking screws, and a screw gun with unlimited batteries.

imho  Brown should get paid by the Patriots  It feels like knowing already what they were getting into the should have to pay the guaranteed money.  Raiders already got screwed giving up picks But I'm probably a little biased given my loathing of Kraft

I'm not sure on the Oakland Raiders guarantees, but he absolutely should be paid by the Cheats.  He signed the contract and played a game, so he is entitled to all the guaranteed money, and his signing bonus, which is a sum of money he was entitled to for SIGNING the contract.  If the Cheats do prevail, it's just another indicator of how the game is fixed in their favor.

It’s a Counter Suit. He needs to recoup the $15M Rosenhaus is suing him for.

Personally, I don’t think NE will end up paying the guarantees.  NE had to take into account the details from Oakland as they wrote the contract language to sign AB.  It would be a colossal business failure to not insulate the organization from additional risk (new victims or continued erratic behavior) or simply the lack of transparency from AB and Rosenhaus to disclose what they knew.  I’d bet money that NE covered their bases here.

I’m stunned by how poorly worded and vague that clause was in his contract with NE*.

Probably some double secret insurance policy that the previous year’s Super Bowl winner is awarded as part of the Lombardi Trophy.  Any legal judgements or fees are covered by the other 31 teams for that following year.  (D’oh!)

The contract was written fine, but the CBA has specific limits when it comes to getting out of guarantees above and beyond the contract.

 

There have been a ton of articles, but it is very likely because of the timing of the cut that even though AB may have invalidated the contract - NE will still have to pay the guaranteed money because of the CBA.  Oakland is probably ok because of ABs actions, but NE is going to end up paying him most of the 20 million he was guaranteed.

Good.  Keep alienating yourself to the entire league.

 

Hope we never see this clown on a football field again.

Read that after what Brown said about Kraft, Kraft stated he'll never pay him.

 

For the sake of argument, assume Brown wins the appeal,  what would happen if NE didn't pay him?  Can the league force them to pay him or garnish the money from the teams revenue sharing check or would Brown have to go to court and sue for the money?   May be something brown would be afraid to do as too much of his life may be exposed to the point he'd be suspended again.

I wouldn't be unhappy if a big ***** of money were to come out of Robert Kraft's pocket.  It would be nice to see it go to a cause a bit more worthy than Antonio Brown, however.

Basically rule that they don't have to pay AB the guaranteed money, but the league requires them to pay it to one of the NFLs Charity (maybe a brain injury CTE cause?) as a penalty for being stupid in signing him....

‘Very interested’ in never signing a nutcase such as AB.
