According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, as part of discovery, the Raiders turned text messages over indicating that Brown asked owner Mark Davis for his release multiple times.

This grievance isn’t that simple, and Brown could still get what he wants. After all, it was the decision to suspend Brown for conduct detrimental to the team that ultimately cost him his Raiders money. That said, it’s clearly something that will work against him. Brown will argue that he wanted to be released because the Raiders weren’t paying up.

No matter how this process goes, it sounds more likely that the Patriots will have to pay Brown his signing bonus, so he stands a chance of getting at least some money out of this process.
