Antonio Brown has message for disgruntled NFL stars

Antonio Brown has message for disgruntled NFL stars Antonio Brown recently successfully orchestrated one of the most stunning tantrums in NFL history, and it paid off big time for the Oakland Raiders star. Imposing his will while lashing out at his former team in a number of different ways, he not only got a trade out of Pittsburgh but also landed more immediate money in the process. Many have wondered if Brown will be just the first of many players who utilize chaos and discord to force their way out of situations they are not happy with. Speaking on that very subject, Brown has a message for players who might be interested in following his lead. “Just watch AB. Study AB.

Report: Antonio Brown settles in furniture-throwing incident© Provided by Oath Inc. Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown, center, has reportedly settled with a man who sued him for allegedly throwing furniture from the window of a Florida condo. (AP) Oakland Raiders receiver Antonio Brown has reportedly cleared one legal issue, as TMZ reports he reached a settlement in an alleged furniture-throwing incident.

Lawsuit stemmed from April 2018 event

Brown was sued by Miami real estate developer Ophir Sternberg last year, after an incident in April 2018.

Brown allegedly threw pieces of furniture, including an ottoman and vases, from the window of his upper-level oceanfront condo at The Mansions at Acqualina in Miami’s Sunny Isles Beach.

Report: Raiders expected to pass on QB in first round

Report: Raiders expected to pass on QB in first round The Raiders have three first-round selections. They have worked out top quarterback prospects Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins. The Raiders, though, are not expected to use a first-day choice on a quarterback, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. “Behind the scenes, the option [of drafting a quarterback in the first round] has appeared remote at best. Today, the outcome would be considered a shocking pivot if it develops,” Gehlken writes. Gehlken said it’s “conceivable” the Raiders could use a third-day choice on a quarterback.

Sternberg’s suit claimed that his 22-month-old son and the boy’s grandfather were near the pool when they were nearly hit by the falling objects and that the toddler was “severely traumatized by the incident, crying for hours.”

Sternberg sought over $15,000 in damages.

Brown said it was not him that threw the furniture, and last October his lawyer called the suit a “shakedown attempt.”

Police report: Brown was angry

According to the suit and a police report from officers who responded, Brown was “very agitated” over $80,000 and a handgun that were apparently missing.

When police arrived, they said Brown was yelling, and others with him in the unit were trying to calm him down.

Still facing lawsuit from building owners

The suit with Sternberg might be settled, but the owners of The Mansions at Acqualina have also sued Brown in the alleged incident, for damage to the furniture and apartment unit.

Settles Case with Sexual Battery Accuser Over Playboy Mansion Incident Bill Cosby is lashing out against his insurance company for settling a lawsuit with a model who accused him of sexual battery, and the comedian is pissed that the company settled the case after officials found there was no evidence to support her claims.
