Raiders release Brown after tumultuous tenure

The Oakland Raiders have announced they've released wide receiver

The move comes after Brown in an Instagram post earlier Saturday asked to be released by the team.

And that's fine ! I have worked my whole life to prove that the system is blind to see talent like mines.Now that everyone sees it, they want me to conform to that same system that has failed me all those years. "I'm not mad at anyone. I'm just asking for the freedom to prove them all wrong." Release me @raiders #NOMore #theyputblindersonahorseforareason #NoMoreFake

Brown told ESPN's Jeff Darlington in an email Saturday that there is "no way" he plays for the Raiders.
