NFL off-season: Wide receiver Antonio Brown to join Oakland Raiders from Pittsburgh Steelers in trade move

Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown celebrates his fourth quarter touchdown

Antonio Brown is set to become the best paid wide receiver is the NFL after revealing that he'll be signing for the Oakland Raiders in a trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Raiders will send a third and fifth round pick from this year's draft to Pittsburgh in exchange for Brown, and they'll also hand him an improved contract.

Brown is set to receive a three-year deal worth around $50 million, with over half of that guaranteed money, to sign with the Raiders - and he revealed the new on his social media accounts.

Brown has played all of his NFL career with Pittsburgh and is widely regarded as one of the best receivers of his generation, earning seven Pro Bowls and having a record six straight years with 100 catches and over 1000 receiving yards.

A breakdown in his relationship with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger brought the beginning of the end for Brown in Pittsburgh though, and he missed the last game of the season as he also fell out with team coaches and owners.

Brown's move could become official on March 13 when the new NFL year officially starts.
