Social media was buzzin’ after the Raiders agreed to terms on a trade with the Steelers for WR Antonio Brown.

The trading of Antonio Brown from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Oakland Raiders has been building for some time. Other teams might have shown some general interest in the All-Pro wide receiver, but it always seemed as if the Raiders were the front runners for Brown’s services — and now they have him.

After sending Pittsburgh a 3rd and 5th round pick, they also agreed to terms on more money for Brown, making him one of the highest paid wide receivers in the league today.

Needless to say, when news hit the wire of Brown’s impending trade, which won’t become official until the new league year begins this week, social media went off. See what current and former players, and of course Brown himself, had to say about the trade via social media.
