Steelers Sign Antonio Brown To 5-Year Extension

In the midst of rocky contract negotiations with Mike Wallace, the Pittsburgh Steelers shored up another important piece of their receiving corps. Per league sources, Antonio Brown has signed a five-year extension worth $42.5 million with the Steelers.

Brown broke out last season, catching 69 passes for 1,108 yards and two touchdowns in his second year in the league. He could take on an even greater role with the team this season, especially if Wallace continues his standoff with the front office.

Brown was a sixth round pick (No. 195 overall) out of Central Michigan in the 2010 NFL Draft. Despite his humble pedigree, Brown now figures to be an important part of Pittsburgh's offense for a very long time.
