    While the news arrives ahead of the Pats’ matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers–AB’s former squad–on Sunday, Brown will not be suiting up just yet as his deal does not officially go into effect until Monday.

    This new development seems to mark the end of a rocky period in time as Brown’s relationship with the Raiders organization hung on by a thread what with a series of bizarre headlines from frostbitten feet to HelmetGate. Things would end with the team opting to release Brown, giving him the opening to join in on what the Patriots have going on this season.
