Hard to believe, but Antonio Brown’s jersey from his record breaking 2011 season has been sent to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
According to the Hall of Fame, Brown toured the museum with Pittsburgh’s draft picks and free agents. He offered to send the jersey he wore when he became the first player in NFL history to surpass 1,000 receiving yards and 1,000 return yards.
His jersey is in the Pro Football Today Gallery in Canton, Ohio.
Brown set the record on New Year’s Day against the Cleveland Browns. He needed just 11 receiving yards. With six minutes remaining in the first half, Brown returned a kick 23 yards to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark.
