The Oakland Raiders have fined wide receiver Antonio Brown nearly $54,000 for missing the Raiders training camp on August 18, and skipping walk through prior to the team’s pre-season game on August 22. Of course, Brown took issue with the notice he received from Raiders GM Mike Mayock, and he took to social media to vent his frustration.
