N.F.L. Players Association Files Grievances on Behalf of Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown is no longer catching passes this season.

Instead, he is trying to win back the roughly $40 million he lost when he was released by the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots in September.

The N.F.L. Players Association filed several grievances on the wide receiver’s behalf late Friday seeking the unpaid salary and guarantees that Brown did not receive from the two teams, according to two people briefed on the filing.

The grievances by Brown, who is now a free agent, will be heard by an arbitrator appointed by the N.F.L. and the players association. It may take months before his cases are heard and decisions are rendered.

NFL Network was first to report the filing, which had been widely anticipated.

After Brown was released by the Patriots, he wrote on Twitter that he did not want to play anymore and that he was angry at team owners who void contracts at will:

“Will not be playing in the @NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at anytime we will see if the @NFLPA hold them accountable sad they can just void guarantees anytime going on 40m 2 months will see if they pay up!”
