The Raiders voided Brown’s guarantees of $29.125 million by fining him for conduct detrimental to the team after he missed practices and got into a heated exchange with general manager Mike Mayock. Additionally, the Patriots are also withholding the $9 million signing bonus Brown was set to be paid.
