The Pittsburgh Steelers are a very fortunate franchise. Fortunate to have such tremendous talent on their roster, especially on the offensive side of the football. When you have Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback, Le’Veon Bell at running back, an offensive line among the best in the league and Antonio Brown at wide receiver...business is boomin’!
Brown was recently given a very unique award from the Madden video game series, as he became a member of the illustrious ‘Madden 99 Club’. This club is reserved for players who receive an overall rating of 100. They might not have a 99 rating in all of their characteristics, but overall they are the best of the best.
Some of the players who are also a part of the 99-club would be New England Patriots Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, and the Rams’ Aaron Donald.
Here is the complete list of the elite group:
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady
New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
Denver Broncos LB Von Miller
Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown
Los Angeles Rams DE Aaron Donald
With Brown being added to the 99 club, the Madden series sent him some sweet gear in his honor. Brown took to his verified Twitter page to share the goodies with his fans, and you can check them out below.

If you are a fan of the game, this news is awesome, but if you are not a gamer, at least you can view Brown’s addition to the club, and as the only wide receiver in the group, as validation of him being the best at the position in the game today.
