The NFL's best receiver has finally restructured his long-overdue rookie contract, and gets a pay increase. Antonio Brown has had nothing short of an amazing career thus far for the Steelers, doing just about everything possible at the wide receiver position. He is coming off a 136 catch, 1,800+ yard season, with 10 TD's, all that with playing several games without Big Ben, and no Le'Veon Bell run game to draw some of the defensive attention. AB is an absolute machine, and over the past 5 seasons has been a true workhorse. He catches for short-yardage, beats you with deep balls, and will make catches in traffic that make you wonder what you just saw.
His contract still takes him through 2017, but increased his 2016 pay, from 6.25$ mil to 10.25$ mil. This new deal comes with a promise of a new deal in 2017, and $8.975 signing bonus. The Steelers got Brown easily and cheap for his first 6 seasons, as he was an absolute steal, truly a robbery of federal jail proportions, being picked in the 6th round, the 195th pick in the 2010 draft. The 28-year-old superstar will look to dominate again this year, as the Steelers looked poised to make a good run this season, and when AB is playing well, which is always, it is must watch football. Business is #Boomin for AB84, and I wish I had the first overall fantasy pick so I could draft him.
