At this point and time, not many fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers would be considered fans of Drew Rosenhaus.

Rosenhaus is the agent for Antonio Brown, and helped orchestrate not just his departure from the Steelers, but also getting a new contract with Oakland making him the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL.

While the Steelers received just 3rd and 5th round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft from Oakland, Brown received a new home and a contract with over $30 million in guaranteed money.

Rosenhaus joined the NFL Network Sunday and talked about the trade, how it happened, and how he feels the deal was good a good one for both sides.

Steelers fans will read this and chuckle to themselves when Rosenhaus calls the deal a win for everyone involved, but at the same time he has to be beaming with pride after he orchestrated such a deal for his client.

The Steelers now have 10 total draft picks in the upcoming selection process, and fans of the black-and-gold are just hoping the team is able to turn those 3rd and 5th round draft picks into something which can have an immediate impact on the 2019 roster and help ease the pain they are currently feeling.
