    Oh man, Steelers fans are livid. All these rumors of a first round pick had them thinking they were actually getting one.

    I think they completely misplayed it. They could have created more bidding but they wanted to dictate the landing area. I’m not sure why they didn’t contact the Giants about swapping Brown for OBJ?

    Antonio Brown + 2019 1st round+ 2019 1st round + 2020 1st round + 2020 2nd round + 2020 5th round

    That looks pretty good to me, if AB had played on his old contract. It's even still ok.

    I don't think OBJ is still on the block. My read on that was the Giants entertained the idea of trading him before they locked him up long term. They instead gave him the big contract and I assume have no plans on trading him now.

    This is some lose lose deal. The only winner is Brown's bank account (guarantees). He himself might never play a meaningful game again and OAK “patient“ rebuild (10y Gruden contract) and “change of culture“ officially ended. By the time they fix their lines, Brown will be but a memory, taking away 10% of the cap each “rebuild“ year.

    Vegas will like this and it seems this is all that matters about the team to the owners at this point..

    Agree. Brown *****ing about BUF didn't help either. They should have had more teams.

    It depends on the Raider rebuilding plan. You have to have some winning now and in three years that money becomes available to help sign the guys drafted this year...........if they hit on those picks.

    Having everyone on a rookie contract is not good. People should notice how BB works rookies/ prime/ end of career players into a roster that never gets into cap hell.

    Frankly, the Raiders have too many picks. Would not be suprised to see them trade a #1 for more picks this year in a deep defense draft............or trade to get into 2021.

    The same people said the same thing about the Eagles when Chip Kelly dumped "Shady" and "DJax".

    Ya can't win with meatheads.....if you could, Pittsburgh might have done something besides getting humiliated in the 2016 AFCCG.

    Their offensive line is intact. I bet they could replicate our 2018 offense in relative short order and they will not have the meatheads (except Rufusburger) around anymore.

    Their ability to rebuild the defense will be key and it's a deep defense draft.

    I'm not debating the acquisition.

    I'm questioning why he is getting a pay raise.

    My guess is he needed a little "incentive" to go to the Raiduhs

    I'm in the minority but given his contract and age I never thought the Steelers were getting a first rounder. Given the Raider picks are near the top of each round this equates to a low second rounder or what the Patriots gave up for Corey Dillon back in the day. Dillon was younger and his contract even considering for inflation was easier to handle for the team taking him on than Brown's.

    I think with all those picks they already have it's a good deal for the Raiders as well. If you just include the receivers and picks you could look at it as Cooper, a 3rd and a 5th for Brown and a 1st. If Bill pulled that off there would be a vasoline shortage in NE.

    As much as we like to bash what everybody else is doing I think this was a good trade for both teams.

    It's a cultural thing in Pittsburgh. Until Tomlin is gone, and Rooney grows a set it will continue to be a never ending cycle of a melodramatic circus.
