Raiders Players Reacts to the Start of Training Camp [LOOK]
Even though the Raiders are coming off a down year, the team is incredibly excited to prove the doubters wrong in 2019. Many players on the team don’t seem to be able to contain their excitement, including Antonio Brown.
Brown also took an interesting mode of transportation for his arrival in Napa.
Looks like he already got rid of the gold mustache after bringing it back for a short while. An engaged and happy Brown is going to mean really good things for the Raiders. Another new Raiders WR expressed his excitement on Twitter.
Tyrell Williams and Antonio Brown should light up training camp together. Second year DT Maurice Hurst took to Instagram to show his excitement.

Terry Bradshaw Goes After Antonio Brown
There seems to be no love lost between two former Pittsburgh Steelers Antonio Brown and Terry Bradshaw. The legendary QB for the Steelers took to The Jim Rome Podcast to rip on the superstar wideout.
“I cannot stand divas,” Bradshaw said on The Jim Rome Podcast when asked about his reaction to the Antonio Brown drama. “Can’t stand them. I don’t want to play with them. I don’t want anything to do with them. This game is too hard without me having to babysit and force plays to a guy just to keep him happy. You know, if he cares about the football team, he’ll shut up. He will keep his mouth shut and play the game. OK? That’s my thinking.”
Antonio Brown has definitely proved to be high maintenance in the past, but his “diva” behavior seems to be behind him for the time being. Brown already has a better relationship with Derek Carr than he did with Ben Roethlisberger, so that should keep Brown happier. Obviously, time will tell if he can keep away from making negative headlines, but for the time being, the Raiders are more than happy to have him.
