The Oakland Raiders wide receiver used a hot air balloon and landed at the team's training camp Friday, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Brown's landing came two days after Jacksonville Jaguars defensive back Jalen Ramsey arrived at training camp in an armored truck, and a day after Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen made his entrance in a gold-and-black Slingshot.

Since Brown makes his living through the air, the wide receiver believed his entrance was totally appropriate. On Twitter, the Raiders posted, "Float like a butterfly, sting like AB."

"Is he OK? That's all I want to know," Raiders coach Jon Gruden joked at a news conference with general manager Mike Mayock. "I expect a lot more drama from No. 84. I really do.

"The Napa Valley is obviously known for the hot air balloons," Brown said in the video tweeted by the Raiders. "There's a lot at stake. We've got to develop our identity, I think it all starts today with the commitment from guys there, everyone there understanding the reason we're there and why they're putting their hand in the pile, to make the Raiders great again."
