The Antonio Brown saga is over in Pittsburgh.  The Steelers traded the talented receiver to the Oakland Raiders for two draft picks in this year’s draft. 

As part of the deal, Brown was given a new contract.  He was given a new 3-year, $50 million deal with $30 million in guaranteed money.


Antonio Brown‘s plan to escape Pittsburgh and get a new contract came to fruition just after midnight early Sunday when the Steelers and the Oakland Raiders agreed to terms on a trade, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

The Steelers will receive a third-round and fifth-round pick in next month’s draft in exchange for one of the defining receivers of his generation. Brown will also get a reworked contract with significant new money and brand new guarantees.

Brown’s new contract is for three years and $50.125M with a maximum value of $54.125M, according to Rapoport. (That’s roughly $12 million more than his old contract called for.) He will receive $30.125M guaranteed, which is $30.125M more than he was due to receive from the Steelers. Brown even managed to first break the news of the deal with a fancy photoshop on Instagram.

Brown got his way.  He’s no longer in Pittsburgh and he just got paid.  The Steelers ended up with more than one draft pick, neither of them was the first-round pick they were reportedly asking for.

Brown celebrated the deal on social media, as did his new quarterback Derek Carr.
