So let’s try this again.

After appearing to be headed to the Buffalo Bills this morning, it appears Antonio Brown has a new home…finally.

The Oakland Raiders have traded for the Steelers WR as HC Jon Gruden gets replacement for Amari Cooper.

The nine-year wide out has six-consecutive seasons of at least 100 catches, an NFL record and has amassed 9,145 yards receiving during that span.

Brown, last year had 15 touchdown receptions, a career high.

The Raiders traded away Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys and with it it’s best WR threat.

With the addition of Brown, the Raiders upgrade a receiver core that last year finished 18th in the NFL in receiving yards.

Teams that reportedly had been in the running to acquire Brown were said to be the Raiders, Titans, and Redskins.

According to Adam Schefter, Brown will now receive $50.125 million over the next three years and can earn up to $54.125 million with incentives.

The trade for Brown, once completed, will not become official until the new league year starts next week.
