Antonio Brown is back in the spotlight yet again and this time around it is an altercation with the general manager of the Oakland Raiders, Mike Maycock. The franchise is reportedly considering a potential suspension for its star running back.

According to ESPN, Brown got into a heated exchange with Maycock on Wednesday, which ended in the running back threatening to hit the general manager. The altercation between the two stemmed from Brown’s decision to post a letter from the franchise that entailed a fine for the player missing training camp.

Maycock was frustrated with his running back for posting the letter but Brown did not stand down and after the heated exchange on the practice field, which was witnessed by other players, punted the football and challenged the general manager to fine him for that. There are some within the Raiders franchise reportedly keen to see the back of Brown and the team could suspend him with the idea of trying to void the $30.125 million guaranteed in his contract for the upcoming season, which will end his career as a Raider.

The Raiders general manager confirmed to reporters that Brown was not in the building on Thursday and the running back was not expected to practice. While it always understood that he will miss their first game of the new NFL season against the Denver Broncos.

"Antonio Brown is not in the building today. He's not going to be practising," Maycock said. "I don't have any more information. When we do, I'll get it to you. That's it for today."

However, despite reports about a potential suspension for the running back, his agent Drew Rosenhaus revealed that they are still talking with the team about resolving the issues between the player and the general manager. There is yet to be any suspension handed to the running back, as they look to mend the relationship again.

"Not a lot is clear yet other than that the Raiders say that A.B. should stay home today," Rosenhaus told NFL Network's Stacey Dales in an interview about Brown's situation. "They're trying to work through their relationship with him. We haven't heard anything about a potential decision yet."

"My hope is there won't be a suspension. I'm not aware of any as of yet. That's their decision. I'm working with them to try and avoid that scenario,” he added.
