Antonio Brown is apparently ready to play football again.
Brown released this movie trailer-esque video on his YouTube channel Friday night, featuring a phone call with the Raiders' coach, Jon Gruden.
There's a language warning on this one:
Gruden asks Brown, "Do you want to be a Raider or not?"
"Man, I've been trying to be a Raider since day one," Brown answered. "I've been f------ working my ass off harder than anyone. I don't know why it's a question of me being a Raider. It's like, do you guys want ME to be a Raider?"
"Please just stop this s--- and just play football," Gruden responded. "How hard is that?"
Brown goes on to say that there "ain't no more games."
"With all these false narratives antagonizing me, it’s time for me to control my own narrative," Brown said in the video's description. "Show the world I’m not the bad guy. Show the world you can free yourself from the lies and become your own person. I am not just AB the football player, I am Antonio Brown, the person, who paved a way for himself to be in charge of his own life. Free me!"
It's worth noting that California has a two-party consent law when it comes to recording, meaning all parties to the conversation must consent to being recorded. Either Brown had Gruden's consent to record their conversation, or he broke the law.
