ALAMEDA — Jon Gruden got angry for a moment during Antonio Brown’s introductory press conference.
Brown, 31, is a seven-time Pro Bowler who has gained at least 1,200 receiving yards and caught at least eight touchdown passes six seasons in a row. The Raiders acquired him in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for a third-round pick and a fifth-round pick, a shrewd deal for the Raiders.
A reporter had asked Gruden if he plans to adjust his conservative passing game, which emphasizes short throws, to accommodate Brown, an explosive wide receiver down the field. But the reporter prefaced the question by mentioning former Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper, whom the team traded last October. Gruden didn’t like hearing about Cooper.
