Antonio Brown is set to join 2019 Super Bowl champions the New England Patriots after he was released by the Oakland Raiders, according to reports.
Brown was released on Saturday, with Raiders head coach Jon Gruden saying the team had "exhausted everything" to keep the wide receiver, who had joined from the
Pittsburgh Steelers on a three-year deal reportedly worth more than $50million per season.
Reports now claim the 31-year-old will link up with the Patriots, signing a one-year, $15m contract, with Brown then seemingly confirming the move on his official Twitter account.
Brown's spell at Oakland took a turn for the worse last week after a reported incident between the receiver and general manager Mike Mayock.
On Wednesday, Brown aired his frustration against the Raiders for fining him for missing practice time and a walk-through.
The situation then escalated from there as it was reported Brown got into a verbal altercation with Mayock, which ultimately resulted in another fine.
Brown apologised to his team on Friday, and Gruden claimed he would play in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos.
However, Brown’s latest social media post proved the final straw.
"You are gonna p*** a lot of people off when you start doing what's best for you," Brown posted to Instagram.
"And that's fine!" it continued. "I have worked my whole life to prove that the system is blind to see talent like mines (sic). Now that everyone sees it, they want me to conform to that same system that has failed me all those years 'I'm not mad at anyone. I'm just asking for the freedom to prove them all wrong.' Release me. @raiders #NOMore."
The Patriots will face the Steelers, who selected Brown out of the 2010 draft, on Sunday.
Brown, however, cannot face his former team without the switch becoming official, which will likely happen on Monday.
