Business is indeed boomin’ for Antonio Brown these days.
Widely recognized as the current “Best WR in the Game,” Brown has been asking to get paid for his production. The Steelers have finally obliged.
The Steelers gave AB $4 M more for 2016, advance from 2017 salary. Now at $10.25 this year. Then, sign him in '17 to new deal. Works

Brown is arguably the most important player on the team, but generally that honor goes to his QB Ben Roethlisberger.
Brown’s numbers have been stellar:
He absolutely deserves compensated, and to move on from being the best bargain in the business. With Martavis Bryant on the shelf and question marks everywhere else, Brown is in position to add incredible stability (and production) to a sorely needed position for the Steelers.
Brown changes games. Now he’s on his way to getting paid like it.
