Captains back Raiders organization on Antonio Brown

If you’re wondering how the Raiders’ locker room is holding up throughout this Antonio Brown-Mike Mayock saga, look no further than David Carr.

That’s right, not Derek — David.

The ex-Fresno State star taken with the Texans’ first-ever pick in 2002 spilled the beans on what the Raiders’ captains told head coach Jon Gruden about the situation.

A reminder of what this is all about: Wednesday morning at practice, Brown and Mike Mayock got into an argument that reportedly started over the star receiver taking his team-issued $53,000 in fines public on Instagram and finished with him threatening to hit the general manager.

“You find yourself in a situation where, as a player, as a team, you go in as the captains did (Wednesday), and talk to Jon Gruden and say whatever you decide to do, because it was so bad, because of what happened to Mike Mayock and what happened on the field was so bad — they’re fine with whatever (the Raiders) decide.”

Who might be David Carr’s source inside a Raiders’ captains meeting? I guess we’ll never know.

Only in the “Do Your Job”, Military Lite NFL do we need a captains meeting to reaffirm loyalty to the almighty organization, which was already holding all the cards and had public sentiment on its side anyway. Surely the captains got a pat on the head before being sent back to the locker room.

Of course, those who’ve lived under a rock for the last month, David Carr has you covered here, save for the frozen feet.
