The Steelers and Raiders have reached a verbal agreement for Antonio Brown to be traded to Oakland in exchange for a third- and fifth-round pick, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Brown will receive a new three-year deal worth up to $54.125 million from the Raiders, with $30.125 million guaranteed, a source told Schefter. He previously had three years and $38.9 million left on his contract with the Steelers, with none of the money guaranteed.

 

Brown and the Steelers have had a very public divorce, as the All-Pro wide receiver didn’t get along with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and had multiple issues with the front office. But Oakland native and current Portland Trail Blazer Damian Lillard is happy to see him in the black and silver.

 

Brown recorded Hall of Fame-type production in Pittsburgh with 834 receptions, 11,207 yards and 74 touchdown catches in nine years, including an NFL-record six consecutive 100-catch seasons.
