Antonio Brown Traded to the Raiders

The Antonio Brown drama with the Pittsburgh Steelers appears to be over, as the wide receiver was traded to the Oakland Raiders for a third and fifth round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Brown was actually the first to post on social media about it, with Pro Football talk confirming it.

With the deal to the Raiders, Brown is getting a new contract. He will still be under contract for three seasons, but will now be the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL making $50.125 million over the life of the contract.

The Raiders have made several moves over the last two seasons with Jon Gruden as head coach. Khalil Mack, Amari Cooper and the draft picks have now turned in to Antonio Brown and plenty of draft picks to work with over the next two seasons. They have four picks in the top 34 of the 2019 NFL Draft.

For the Steelers, trading Brown was a necessity after his not playing in week 17 of last season and all of the comments he made this offseason, many of which were directed at Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers have now traded Brown and Marcus Gilbert this offseason and have acquired three extra draft picks for the 2019 NFL Draft.
