"Give it to me," he said. Antonio Brown.
And the Oakland Raiders did, abruptly halting the strangest NFL off-season saga, sooner than the star's big receiver was likely to buy a critical pass in dark and silver.
The Raiders keep the group's WR Antonio Brown released at this time.

Brown requested that the Raiders start it in an Instagram post on Saturday morning.
"Now I'm not mad at anyone. I'm valid asking for the freedom to contaminate them all recently," he said.
It marked the culmination of a relief that consumed the group and much of the football world.
After an alleged fight with total supervisor Mike Mayock earlier this week, the Raiders indicated that they were preparing to throb and undoubtedly set aside the star.
But Brown apologized on Friday, with colleagues saying they authorized him.
"We had a group assembly that Antonio reached the group," said quarterback Derek Carr. “We were up there with him, just a few captains. We communicated when this used to be done, and we were all enraged to pass on. "
Coach Jon Gruden has asked Brown to appear apparently to originate in Monday's opening game against the Denver Broncos.
However, the drama didn't stop there.
Brown then posted a video on YouTube on Friday this included the audio of what appeared to be a dialogue between him and Gruden, and which urged that everyone used to be perhaps now not so pleasant now in Oakland, because the Raiders were looking to perform.
Then came Saturday's closing climb and the news that Brown used to disappear.
The Raiders obtained Brown from Pittsburgh Steelers in March for third and fifth spherical picks, giving him a branded contract and a strong boost in technique.
He was welcome in Pittsburgh, however, the Raiders were carefully relying on Brown to unleash an offense that used to be lackluster a year ago after Gruden resumed training at the advertiser booth.
He introduced himself carefully in this year's edition of the phrase "Beat Exhaustion," which used to focus on the Raiders' training ground.
Drama about Brown's reluctance to wear an NFL-required helmet and his absence from the group after suffering a foot ruin during cryotherapy greatly worried the sequence.
The video he posted on YouTube last Friday had an extra homely feel.
It ends with Brown saying, "I'm more than good at a football player, man. I'm a firm person in particular. It's not about football. I know I'm in a position to create that. I say that to you all the days. Here's my life. There are no extra games. "
Now not for the Raiders anyway.
