Less than two days after thanking the Patriots about the opportunity they gave him, Antonio Brown struck a very different tone on Sunday morning.

The embattled wide receiver took shots at Robert Kraft and Ben Roethlisberger while saying he was through with playing in the NFL in a series of tweets.

Brown's actions have cost him millions of dollars in the form of guaranteed money from the Raiders and a signing bonus from the Patriots. As Tom E. Curran reported, the first installment of Brown's signing bonus with New England was due Monday.

If his first tweet was pointed at NFL owners as a whole, he zeroed in on Robert Kraft in his next tweet.

Brown brought up Kraft's Orchids of Asia scandal from earlier this year, an incident that the league has not punished the Patriots owner for. Kraft was reportedly "enraged" about Brown's most recent behavior, sending intimidating text messages to one of his accusers.

 

But Brown wasn't content with only taking shots at Kraft. He also targeted his former teammate Ben Roethlisberger and brought up Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe in an attempt to show a double standard in the NFL.

So even though Brown's Patriots tenure is over, it's clear we haven't heard the last from the wide receiver, at least on social media.
