The Oakland Raiders have finally cut ties with their seemingly emotionally troubled wide receiver, Antonio Brown. The future Hall of Famer, never played a single regular season snap for the silver and black, but he did cause them an immense about of embarrassment, and for that he should be every Charger fan’s favorite Raider of all time.

Not only did Chargers fans get to enjoy watching the Raiders bend over backward to accommodate the erratic star while he repeatedly spit in their face, we also get to know that we never have to worry about him making it up to them by say scoring multiple touchdowns against the Chargers in week 10. The entire Antonio Brown saga was almost unimaginably insane to follow and I think we can all agree that it is bittersweet to see it come to an end.

The only downside to the way things went is that it looks like the Raiders managed to avoid having to pay him all of that guaranteed money they signed him to back in the Spring. Oh, well. You can’t win them all.
