Brown, who was acquired by the Raiders in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers back in March, has been at the centre of much controversy in recent months, including a holdout due to a dispute with the NFL over helmet regulations.
It was reported Brown faced a ban following a confrontation with general manager Mike Mayock, but he issued an apology and was back training with the Raiders on Friday, seemingly putting the myriad issues behind him.
Brown posted a video on his official YouTube page on Friday that appeared to include clips of a conversation with head coach Jon Gruden in which the player says: "I've been trying to be a Raider since day one."
"It's time for me to control my own narrative," he wrote alongside the video. "Show the world I'm not the bad guy."
On Saturday, an Instagram post from Brown suggested his relationship with Oakland had soured once more, asking the team to release him.
