The Raiders acquired Brown in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers back in March, sending a third-round draft pick and a fifth-rounder to the Steelers in exchange. "Napa Valley is obviously known for the hot air balloons", Brown said in the clip.
During his pre-training camp press conference, Gruden laughed at the fact Brown arrived in a hot-air balloon and then indicated he's prepared for the drama that the star brings to a team. I expected a little more than a hot-air balloon.
The 31-year-old said in a video he shared on Twitter, "I thought it'd be exciting to switch it up". Fullback Keith Smith joined Brown on the non-football injury list with a knee injury he suffered working out in the offseason. "We've kind of got to develop our identity".
"When he catches a quick slant and gets vertical and goes - it's rare to see grown men in the National Football League look at each other and just start giggling and laughing, and it happens nearly every day in practice", Mayock said. "So it's up to us to deal with it and I think we're dealing with it in a professional way". Mayock said Smith's is "nowhere near a season-ending injury".
