Ex-New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown argues with another NFL player on social media, this time against Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield and told him that he & # 39; beat quick & # 39; would be in a fight.
The verbal sparring competition began Friday, when Mayfield, 24, went to Instagram to post a review in which he was interviewed after an Oklahoma University competition. He subtitled the photo: & # 39; Just a little substandard Walk On … Keep that same energy. & # 39;
Mayfield, who is 6 & # 39; 1 "tall, was a walk-on freshman quarterback at Texas Tech, before moving to Oklahoma University, where he was going to win the Heisman Trophy as a senior in 2017.

Mayfield posted this throwback photo of himself on social media and promoted a fan to tell him to stop placing images with captions that sound like Brown
Mayfield responded to the fan with this sarcastic comment, referring to headlines made by Brown in recent months, including accidental freezing on his feet during cryotherapy
A fan, using Antonio Brown & # 39; s & # 39; AB & # 39; sobriquet, in response to the Mayfield caption, wrote: & # 39; Win soccer matches. That speaks louder than these messages in AB-like style & # 39 ;, referring to Brown's tendency to make seemingly stubborn statements in photo captions and tweets.
Mayfield replied: & # 39; You are right. Let me call my teammates and put a helmet on my helmet and then freeze my feet. & # 39;
The quarterback referred to several recent Brown newspaper headlines, including freezing at his feet during cryotherapy and a bosom about not being allowed to use a particular helmet while he was signed with the Oakland Raiders in the summer.
In response to Mayfield & # 39; s excavation, Brown, 31, tweet Saturday: & # 39; Sorry, Chico continues to roll straight on, you have not done anything in this competition, the only place on the internet you would ever have about me to talk. You know that you are beaten quickly, you swallow a modest cake. & # 39;
Brown then deleted the tweet New York Post reported it, replacing it with another reading: & # 39; Must never have been drawn up for Lamar Jackson what a big scam & # 39; and a link to an article about Mayfield & # 39; s DUI 2017.
Brown was not happy with Mayfield's comment, so he went to Twitter with his own comment
Brown posted this tweet and slammed Mayfield, which he then removed on Saturday morning
As part of a plea bargain, Mayfield pleaded guilty to felony allegations of public intoxication, disorderly conduct and fleeing the scene in an Arkansas court in June 2017 and was sentenced to pay $ 480 in fines and $ 483.20 in refund, according to Bleacher report. Despite this, the Browns selected him as the first overall choice in the 2018 NFL draft.
Mayfield does not seem to have responded to Brown's messages on social media.
Brown & # 39; s social media sparring with NFL players and league bigwigs allegedly put him in trouble with teams that might still be interested in hiring him, despite his accusations against him that were against him in mid-September submitted.
Mike Freeman from Bleacher Report tweeted Saturday morning & # 39; A team officer interested in Antonio Brown echoes something that I have repeatedly heard: "The competition uses what he does on Twitter as additional evidence that he got out of hand and should be suspended."
In recent days, Brown got into a Twitter fight with Rams safety Eric Weddle.
He has also written and subsequently deleted a tweet referring to the arrest of Patriots owner Robert Kraft in February for crimes for prostitution. & # 39; Kraft got entangled in the salon's AB speculations, and clearly shot different people off different strokes, & # 39; Brown wrote on September 22, accompanied by a picture of himself and one of his accusers, Britney Taylor.
Brown was cut by the Patriots on September 20, after being signed by them on September 7 – the same day he was cut by the Raiders after a controversial preseason with the Oakland team.
Although the Oakland Raiders may have finished with Antonio Brown, it seems that he is not finished with them yet.
ESPN reported Friday that Brown is working on a & # 39; potential complaint & # 39; against the Raiders, trying to recoup some of the $ 30 million in guaranteed money that was canceled when the team released him earlier this month.
According to the report, the NFL Players Association is also investigating how Brown can get money back.

Referring to a source, Fowler said that among the money Brown wants back, three fines have been imposed by the Raiders, his week 1 salary, his base salaries for this and the following season totaling $ 29 million and a signing bonus of $ 1 million.
Several reports in recent days also said that Brown would file a complaint against the New England Patriots, who signed Brown after being released by the Raiders, and then cut him after just one game.
Yahoo Sports reported Friday that five league sources agreed that Brown is likely to win a complaint about the $ 9 million signing bonus that the Patriots are refusing to pay him. According to those sources, Brown has not been released for any behavior described in the collective labor agreement that might invalidate a team's bonuses.
A week before Brown was cut up by New England, his former trainer filed a civil case in which he was accused of three incidents of sexual violence or rape over a two-year period from 2017 to 2018.
When the day before Brown was cut off, Sports Illustrated reported that a second woman who claimed Brown had made unwanted sexual advances towards her the NFL Brown her & # 39; intimidating and threatening & # 39; had sent texts.
According to the Yahoo report on Friday, by playing Brown in a game after learning the civil case, the Patriots will have a difficult time claiming the case as a reason to cancel his bonuses.
League sources, however, said that Kraft would fight to the bitter end to prevent Brown from paying another penny after the online insults.
After all, it was said and done in arbitration, but the Patriots may have no choice but to pay Brown the signing bonus, five experts said Yahoo Sports.
The key to the dispute lies in the collective labor agreement of the competition, which lists four specific reasons why a player would lose a signing bonus. Those reasons are:
League sources say that whatever the Patriots put into their contract with Brown, these four conditions are the only one that allows the CBA to lose a signing bonus.
The lawsuit in which Brown was accused of rape was filed by federal court 28-year-old Britney Taylor just three days after the Patriots signed him on September 7, hours after the Oakland Raiders cut Brown off a three-year deal for $ 30 million.
The Patriots could possibly have terminated their contract with Brown by stating that he had withheld information about the civil proceedings during negotiations – but the team ignored that claim when they allowed Brown to play against the dolphins on September 15, competition sources say . .
The Patriots paid Brown $ 158,333 for that match – which could ultimately undermine the team's attempt to invalidate the guaranteed signing bonus.
& # 39; If they had cut (Brown) as soon as they became aware of the civil proceedings, then there is the argument of the (withheld) violation undermining the entire agreement & # 39 ;, a division source told Yahoo Sports.
& # 39; But they kept him in the selection after the lawsuit was filed. They played him in a game. They even paid him checks for (two weeks) work. If the civil proceedings were a real dealbreaker, the Patriots could have shown it by breaking the deal. Their actions appeal to their intention and their intention was shown when they continued to pay him after the civil proceedings. & # 39;
Nevertheless, nearby observers expect Kraft to fight the bonus payment at every step of arbitration, and say Brown would not expect to see the money earlier than late in 2020.
& # 39; This is just hatred. They fight (Brown) completely out of anger and shame in ownership, & a source told Yahoo.
Some believe that Kraft refuses to pay Brown, regardless of what judgment is given in arbitration.
After his release from the Patriots, Brown initially went to Twitter to announce his retirement from the NFL, but quickly changed course and said he hoped to play again.
& # 39; I'm still the best why quit now, & # 39; Brown wrote on Thursday.
The 31-year-old free agent also boasted, somewhat ambiguously: & # 39; The game needs me, I'm like test answers. & # 39;
Brown is currently an unlimited free agent and is being investigated by the NFL, which has not yet reached a conclusion in its investigation.
Drew Rosenhaus, Brown's agent, believes his client will be back in the NFL if and when the competition clears him from any misconduct.
& # 39; I believe Antonio wants to continue his career in the NFL, & # 39; said Rosenhaus on the podcast of retired NFL veteran Warren Sapp.
& # 39; It is my hope, it is Antonio's hope that he will play back as soon as possible, & # 39; Rosenhaus added.
In 10 NFL seasons (the first nine with the Pittsburgh Steelers), Brown caught 841 passes for 11,263 yards and 75 touchdowns. He is a seven-fold Pro Bowl selection and four-fold All-Pro.
