Steelers and WR Antonio Brown Agree to Four-Year Deal Worth a Reported $68 Million

It’s a done deal for the Steelers and wide out Antonio Brown, as today the star receiver agreed to a reported four-year deal worth about $16 mil per season ($68 million total), making him the highest paid wide out in the game.

The Steelers leading wide out wrapped up last season with 106 catches for over 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns. He’s had five straight seasons with over 1,000 receiving yards, and is held in regard as the best pass catcher in the game.

Brown’s inking wasn’t the only news by the team today, as the club also placed the franchise tag on running back Le’Veon Bell, meaning basically that he’ll be back in 2017 as well.

    The offense is primed for another Super Bowl run barring injury . If Martavis Bryant is reinstated and he manages to keep his self clean the Steelers will have the best offense in the league . It wonr be close . With that said , the focus has to shift to the defense . The Steelers have to find an outside linebacker who can rush the passer . Its a must and the biggest need of the offseason . Free agency or the draft , it has to happen .

    Love AB, but ……. I don’t feel he deserves it, that’s over a million dollars a game. For four years, along with his dumb antics that cost the team yardage at times that cost us winning games.
