Antonio Brown unfollows Raiders, Derek Carr on Instagram amid drama

Antonio Brown has made a number of curious decisions over the past couple months. That continued Thursday, as Brown apparently unfollowed both the Oakland Raiders and quarterback Derek Carr on Instagram while Brown was feuding with the team.

On Thursday, reports emerged suggesting the Raiders would suspend Brown after the receiver got into an altercation with Raiders general manager Mike Mayock. Brown reportedly told Mayock he would punch Mayock in the face. The 31-year-old Brown had to be restrained from going after Mayock.

After that, Brown took to the Internet to get some payback. How? He unfollowed both the Raiders and Carr on Instagram.

In an odd twist, some noticed that Brown does follow one NFL team on Instagram. No, it’s not the Pittsburgh Steelers — Brown’s former team. It’s the Houston Texans. Brown also follows Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. It doesn’t appear those were new follows, so there’s no reason to think Brown is trying to force his way to Houston or Baltimore.

Brown unfollowing the Raiders is definitely petty, though not unexpected considering the way things have gone. Brown unfollowing Carr is much more surprisingly, especially considering they seemed to interact well together on “Hard Knocks.”

It’s one thing for Brown to be upset with his team, but if he’s already feuding with his quarterback, that could create an even messier situation in the locker room. That is, if the Raiders even keep Brown around.
