Antonio Brown appears to reveal Raiders move
Antonio Brown appears to have been traded to the Oakland Raiders after seemingly revealing the move on Instagram.
The disgruntled Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver posted an image on Instagram of himself adorned in Raiders attire and the hashtag "raidernation". It was the first of multiple posts about the Raiders.
Multiple news outlets reported Brown would be joining the Raiders in exchange for third- and fifth-round picks.
According to the report, Brown will receive a new contract, increasing his deal from $38.925million to $50.125m over three years.
Brown, 30, officially requested a trade from the Steelers last month after becoming disgruntled with his role.
The seven-time Pro Bowl was picked by Pittsburgh in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft and has spent each of his nine seasons with the team.
Brown had 1,297 receiving yards and a career-high 15 touchdowns in 15 games last season.
