The Denver Broncos won't have to face Antonio Brown on Monday when they match up with the Raiders, but now Brown is expected to suit up in a Patriots uniform.

Adam Schefter Tweeted the following Saturday afternoon:

Brown didn't leave the Raiders on good terms. He was upset about his latest team fine over an outburst at practice at general manager Mike Mayock. That fine allowed the Raiders to void more than $29 million in guarantees over the next two years in Brown's contract.

Oakland instead decided to cut ties entirely. The Raiders had been counting heavily Brown after trading a third and fifth-round pick to Pittsburgh for the game's most prolific receiver in March. They also gave him a new three-year contract worth $50.1 million that now is void following the release.
