Antonio Brown wasn't on the market for long.

The seven-time Pro Bowl player became an unrestricted free agent Saturday after the Raiders shockingly released him and hours later, landed with the Patriots.

It was widely speculated that Brown would join New England's receiving corps that already houses Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon and Demaryius Thomas, and multiple reports later confirmed the deal: a reported one-year, $15 million contract.

Brown took to social media to celebrate the move.

"LFG," he tweeted, in part, with a photoshopped picture of him in a Patriots' jersey.

The Brown saga in Oakland took a turn for the worse last week after a reported incident between Brown and general manager Mike Mayock.

It started Wednesday when Brown aired his frustration on Instagram against the Raiders for fining him for missing practice time and a walk-through. The situation then escalated from there as it was reported Brown got into a verbal altercation Mayock, which ultimately resulted in another fine for th

e wideout.

The Raiders first considered suspending Brown for his latest actions, but he apologized to his team Friday and appeared to clear the air. Coach Jon Gruden said the plan was for Brown to play in Week 1 against the Broncos, but that quickly changed when they announced his release Saturday after his latest social media post. 

"You are gonna piss a lot of people off when you start doing what's best for you," Brown's Instagram post began in large type.

"And that's fine!" it continued. "I have worked my whole life to prove that the system is blind to see talent like mines (sic). 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."

The Patriots will face the Steelers, who selected Brown out of the 2010 draft, on Sunday.

Brown, however, cannot face his former team without the transaction becoming official which will likely happen Monday.
