Antonio Brown News
Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said he's not planning on playing wide receiver Antonio Brown at all in the preseason. It's Brown's first season with the Raiders, but it doesn't sound like Gruden is worried about him gaining any chemistry with quarterback Derek Carr in preseason games. The 30-year-old wideout should be just fine and has been one of the best wideouts in the league for a while now, recording six straight 1,000-yard seasons. He's also caught double-digit touchdowns in four of the last five seasons. While his production could suffer away from Pittsburgh and Big Ben, Brown should remain an elite WR1 for fantasy purposes.
The Raiders have acquired wide receiver Antonio Brown from the Steelers. In exchange, Pittsburgh will receive two 2019 draft picks, reportedly in the third and fifth rounds. The 30-year-old is also expected to receive a significant increase in guaranteed cash which includes performance incentives that could allow him to make over $54 million throughout the next three seasons. Brown, who has spent the past nine seasons in Pittsburgh, is still considered one of the league's top receivers, finishing with 15 touchdown receptions in 2018-19, good for first in the league, in addition to 104 receptions on 168 targets. He will undoubtedly be the top option for quarterback Derek Carr for a Raiders team that struggled at times on the offensive end last season. Subsequently, he will also be one of the first wideouts off the board in fantasy drafts this fall, despite the change in scenery.
The Buffalo Bills are now saying they are out on trade talks for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown after they were in intense talks for the star wideout on Thursday night, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Bills general manager Brandon Beane said the team has moved on from Brown and is focused on free agency. Brown would not commit to showing up in Buffalo and the Bills decided the drama wasn't worth it. While Brown has six straight seasons of 100-plus catches and 1,000-plus receiving yards, moving to Buffalo would've been bad for business. He's been an elite WR1, but you have to wonder if his production will dip significantly away from Pittsburgh.
The Buffalo Bills are closing in on a trade to acquire Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, a source close to the situation told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The two sides aren't ready to disclose the compensation, however. Pittsburgh has said they won't give Brown, one of the best receivers in the game, away for pennies. With Robert Foster and Zay Jones currently atop the receiving depth chart in Buffalo, adding Brown would be a monumental upgrade at the position. A no-doubt WR1 worth a first-round selection the last six seasons, the move to Buffalo to be paired with young quarterback Josh Allen won't be great news for Brown's fantasy value, however.
The Pittsburgh Steelers could trade wide receiver Antonio Brown soon, sources informed of the situation told NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport. The Steelers ideally want to move Brown before March 17 when Brown's $2.5 million roster bonus is due. Pittsburgh insists that they won't just give Brown away, however, despite the fact that he became a locker-room problem in recent seasons. The Steelers are telling interested teams to make their best offers for Brown. Three new teams have jumped into the mix of late, while the Jets and Cardinals are out of the competition. The Raiders have been constantly linked to Brown. The embattled wideout remains one of the best receivers in the game, but his numbers could easily dip with a new team.
