The Pittsburgh Steelers gave wide receiver Antonio Brown just what he wanted, and just what he deserved — a huge contract. Now as the league’s highest paid wide receiver there is plenty to celebrate
Despite what many may believe, Brown was vastly underpaid for his work on the football field, and his new contract caught the attention of teammates, as well as opponents around the NFL.
Check out what was said on social media congratulating Brown for hitting the big money!
