No matter what, the Steelers must give Antonio Brown the deal he deserves

One of the league's most transcendent talents may force one of the NFL's top franchises to break one of its longstanding rules. Rules were made to be broken. A sixth-round draft pick, for example, isn't supposed to forge as career as a reliable NFL starter, let alone become a transcendent All-Pro talent. New England Patriots QB Tom Brady did it, and he has four Super Bowls and nearly $170 million in career earnings to show for it. Similarly, the Pittsburgh Steelers have WR Antonio Brown, a former sixth-round pick from the unheralded MAC conference who will be seeking his fourth consecutive...

Antonio Brown didn't have to wait for his second contract in 2012

Antonio Brown has two years remaining on his contract and it’s unlikely the Steelers will rip that up and give him a new one. It’s more likely the Steelers will advance him $2 million in salary just as they did last year to appease him and then negotiate a new contract with him next spring.

Jets Marshall Challenges Steelers Brown to a Bet – AB’s Repsonse – “I’ll Gladly Accept”

In case you missed the PR stunt of the day, Jets wide out Brandon Marshall, never afraid to speak his mind, challenged the best wide out of the day – yes Antonio Brown – with the price being one of two luxury cars that each receiver owns. Marshall fired first, “if I have more receiving yards than you, you’ve got to give me the Rolls-Royce.” Funny stuff right? Let’s be real here for a second, Brown is the best wide out in football, end of story. Last season he had 136 catches for 1834 yards and 10 scores. Marshall – […] The post Jets Marshall Challenges Steelers Brown to a Bet...

Jets WR Brandon Marshall Challenges Steelers WR Antonio Brown in Bet Involving Yards

Standing in front of a white Porsche — the new sponsor of the Jets — Brandon Marshall said on an Instagram video he’ll give up the car if Antonio Brown outdistances him in receiving yards, but “if I have more receiving yards than you, you’ve got to give me the Rolls-Royce,” Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com […]

Brandon Marshall puts up Porsche in risky Antonio Brown bet

Brandon Marshall had an outstanding season in 2015. He set all sorts of franchise records with the New York Jets, including the most receiving yards (1,502) and receptions (109). He also became the first player in NFL history to have a 1,000-yard receiving season with four different teams. Yet, for as great of a season...

Jets WR Brandon Marshall bets his Porsche he out performs Steelers WR Antonio Brown in 2016

With the Steelers reporting to training camp, Jets WR Brandon Marshall took to Instagram to make the 2016 season a bit more interesting for he and Antonio Brown. In the past three NFL seasons, there hasn't been a receiver better than Pittsburgh Steelers Antonio Brown. There have been a couple receivers who have shown up on the radar for a season, but no one has been able to hang with the historical precedent Brown has set throughout this time span. As the 2016 officially gets under way for most teams, including the Steelers, New York Jets receiver Brandon Marshall decided to make the...

Pittsburgh Steelers 2016 Training Camp: Top 5 offensive camp battles to watch

With the likes of Ben, Brown and Bell the Steelers offense is a force to be reckoned with. Outside of the killer B's, there is still lots of competition however. Here are the offensive camp battles to watch. The Steelers offense is the best in the league. This is, in my mind, irrefutable. We all know the mainstays of this unit - the killer B's. Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell have little to nothing to prove at training camp, they all have built their reputations as the reliable starters that a team with a seventh Super Bowl victory in their sites needs. This does not mean...

Brown, Steelers will need to compromise again over contract issues

PITTSBURGH -- Antonio Brown is expected to arrive in Latrobe on Thursday for the start of training camp despite wanting a new deal. His numbers reflect that he's one of the best receivers in the NFL, but his contract doesn't.

Report: Steelers WR Antonio Brown won't hold out of training camp, but wants a new contract

As if the Pittsburgh Steelers didn't have enough issues, Antonio Brown is expecting a new contract prior to the 2016 NFL season. Just when you thought the news of Le'Veon Bell's impending 4-game suspension was enough to keep Pittsburgh Steelers fans busy, news broke Wednesday morning from ESPN's Adam Schefter of wide receiver Antonio Brown wanting a new contract before the 2016 season begins. As we all know, the Steelers rarely negotiate contracts with anyone who doesn't take snaps under center without there being just one year on their current contract. Antonio Brown currently has two...

Steelers Training Camp Battle Breakdown: Eli Rogers vs. Demarcus Ayers

It seems like a foregone conclusion that the Steelers want to reduce AB's load by taking him off punt return duties but do they have someone capable of replacing him? Normally I wouldn't get so excited over something like the returner battle, considering whenever it seems the Steelers try to replace Antonio Brown they have almost nobody close to capable fielding punts back there (COUGH Jacoby Jones). The Steelers love what Antonio Brown brings to the table as a punt returner, but they must feel that they should take him off those duties and find someone who specializes in returning so he...
