Ian Rapoport of NFL Network has reported that the Steelers received third and fifth round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Raiders have pick No. 66 in the third round and pick No. 141 in the fifth round. Mention Steelers Now and save $10! The move comes days after reports of the Buffalo Bills nearly acquiring Brown, before Brown profusely refused to pack his bags and play for the Bills. The trade officially marks the end of one of the most dominant stretches ever by a wide receiver, as the sixth-round pick out of Central Michigan ranks first in the following categories since his emergence in 2011: Targets (1,255), receptions (821), yards (11,040) and touchdowns (74). The very first play of @AB84’s NFL career? A touchdown. (Sept. 19, 2010) @steelers pic.twitter.com/X7AvZWo73U — NFL Throwback (@nflthrowback) March 9, 2019 The rise (and fall) of Brown has been greatly documented in Pittsburgh, as Brown turned from a Steel City legend to a player the fans and organization couldn’t rid themselves of fast enough. Brown and his camp will likely be looking for a new contract, as the All-Pro receiver has no more guaranteed money left on his deal with three years remaining. The Steelers will move forward with JuJu Smith-Schuster as their number one receiver, and will likely look to the NFL Draft or free agency for further help. The Steelers and Brown saw a tremendous run together, yet business will no longer boom for Brown in Pittsburgh as the two will officially go their separate ways. 48shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment Email Related Topics:Antonio BrownfeaturedPittsburgh SteelersTrade Up Next From Sammie Coates to Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster Has Been Ready Don't Miss Steelers Trade OT Marcus Gilbert to Arizona Donnie Druin Continue Reading Advertisement You may like James Washington Continues Strong Preseason Performance Injury Updates: Benny Snell, Anthony Chickillo Evaluated; Devin Bush Absence ‘Precaution’ From the Locker Room: Rudolph Critical of his Play, Hilton Compliments Burns Steelers Overcome Sloppy, Delayed Start to Top Chiefs, 17-7 FINAL: Steelers 17, Kansas City Chiefs 7 Players, Coaches from around NFL Attend Darryl Drake’s Funeral Click to comment Leave a Reply This comment form is under antispam protection This comment form is under antispam protection Subscribe Notify of new follow-up comments new replies to my comments Steelers Now in Your Mailbox!
