The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the Steelers are unlikely to negotiate an extension with Antonio Brown this summer.
ESPN's Jeremy Fowler — a great reporter — reports the sides have been "in communication," but GM Kevin Colbert keeps claiming Brown won't get special treatment. The Steelers, like most teams, only negotiate with players in their contract years. Brown is signed through 2017. It's unfair for Brown, who is woefully underpaid, but he's not making waves. If Brown's 2016 is anything like his past three seasons, the Steelers might regret letting him get another year expensive. Aug 4 - 4:22 PM

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Steelers have "been in communication" with Antonio Brown's agent about his contract.

Brown has said, correctly, that he deserves a new deal. The Steelers supposedly have a policy against negotiating with non-contract year players who aren't quarterbacks, but Brown is a unique case. He's been historically good the past three seasons and isn't even in the top 10 of receiver pay. Brown is taking the goodwill approach, saying he has no plans to skip any of camp.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Antonio Brown's contract situation "bears watching."

Brown is scheduled to earn a $8.25 million base salary in 2016, which makes him a relative bargain compared to other top receivers like A.J. Green ($13 million) and Julio Jones ($15.9 million). Per Rapsheet, Brown has been closely following DeAndre Hopkins' holdout in Houston. He also noted that Brown is disappointed that the Steelers haven't matched his sense of urgency in negotiations. Brown was optimistic about a new deal when he entered training camp but obviously there hasn't been much progress. AB is still under contract through 2017.

Antonio Brown will not hold out of Steelers camp despite displeasure with his contract.

Brown is still working on the six-year, $43 million deal the Steelers gave him in 2012 after Mike Wallace rejected it. He caught 136 balls last season and collected a $1 million salary. Brown's salary this year is $6.25 million. As Brown is signed through 2017 and Pittsburgh has one of the worst cap situations in the league, an extension will probably be put off until next offseason.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler believes it is possible Antonio Brown catches 150 passes this season.

Marvin Harrison currently holds the NFL record with 143 receptions in 2002, but it is not crazy to think Brown could blow by that mark. Brown caught 136 balls last year, and he managed 9.91 receptions per game while Ben Roethlisberger was healthy, which would have been good enough for 159 catches over a full season. With Martavis Bryant suspended, Brown will be the unquestioned focal point of the offense. If he and Ben stay healthy, he could set some records. Brown is the clear-cut No. 1 fantasy receiver this season.

Antonio Brown (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Broncos.

But, according to Bengals RCB Adam Jones, Brown was "acting" and faking his concussion. Apparently not. Brown was on the field at practice this week, but didn't actually participate at all. He just didn't have enough time to gain clearance. It's a monster loss for the Steelers and a big blow to their chances Sunday. Martavis Bryant and Markus Wheaton will be tasked with more. Darrius Heyward-Bey should play significant snaps as the No. 3 receiver.
Jan 15 - 9:31 AM

Antonio Brown (concussion) remained sidelined Thursday.

Brown's odds of suiting up for Sunday's game against the Broncos are looking long. With Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) expected to be highly limited, the Steelers are going to have a tough time springing the road upset.
Jan 14 - 3:46 PM

Antonio Brown (concussion) has told at least one teammate that he remains "hopeful" of playing in the Divisional Round.

Brown didn't practice on Wednesday and reportedly admitted to experiencing concussion symptoms, but there is still some long-shot hope Brown will be ready to face the Broncos. If Brown can't go, Pittsburgh would trot out Martavis Bryant, Markus Wheaton, and Darrius Heyward-Bey as its three-wide set.

Antonio Brown (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

It puts Brown in the early stages of the concussion protocol. Coach Mike Tomlin said the team is "hopeful" Brown will play in the Divisional Round, but he's in a race to get cleared. Brown's status will be monitored closely throughout the week.
Jan 13 - 4:25 PM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said the team is "hopeful" about Antonio Brown's (concussion) ability to play "but will do what's right."

Brown will be at the Steelers' facility to go through tests Tuesday afternoon. Pittsburgh may be hopeful, but ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports it is "not looking good" for Brown to play against the Broncos. With DeAngelo Williams (foot) also likely to miss and Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) limited at best, the Steelers' offense is likely to struggle against the best defense in the league.
Jan 12 - 12:30 PM

ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports Antonio Brown (concussion) is "not looking good" for the Divisional Round against the Broncos.

DeAngelo Williams (foot) is also "not looking good" for Week 19, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, so RapSheet and Holtzman could possibly be getting word from the same source. Brown was leveled by Bengals WLB Vontaze Burfict on the final fourth-quarter drive and is in the league's concussion protocol. Burfict earned a three-game suspension for the hit on Monday.
Jan 11 - 7:52 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Antonio Brown is in the league's concussion protocol.

Pacman Jones ludicrously claimed Brown was faking his concussion after getting laid low by a savage Vontaze Burfict cheap shot. He isn't, but the early signs have suggested he'll be ready for the Divisional Round. His status will be updated throughout the week.
Jan 11 - 1:42 PM

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac reports Antonio Brown (concussion) "should be able to play" Sunday against the Broncos.

Brown took a vicious hit from Vontaze Burfict with less than 20 seconds remaining in the Steelers' Wild Card win over the Bengals. The play resulted in a personal foul for Burfict as well as another for Adam Jones as Brown was being helped off the field. The two infractions set Pittsburgh up for the game-winning field goal. Brown was placed in the concussion protocol after the game, but he was reportedly laughing and joking with his teammates in the locker room. It is possible he avoided a concussion altogether. Brown's status will be updated throughout the week.
Jan 11 - 9:40 AM

Antonio Brown exited late in the fourth quarter of the Steelers' Wild Card win over the Bengals with a concussion.

Brown took a senseless hit to the head from Vontaze Burfict with less than 20 seconds left in the game. Burfict was called for a personal foul on the play, and Adam Jones earned an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty while Brown was being helped off to set up the game-winning field goal. Brown was electric Saturday night, catching 7-of-12 targets for 119 yards including a 60-yard catch and run to set up the Steelers' only offensive touchdown in the third quarter. Brown has been placed in the concussion protocol, but he was reportedly joking with teammates in the locker room. His status will be monitored closely this week.
Jan 10 - 12:16 AM

Antonio Brown caught 13-of-17 targets for 187 yards and a touchdown Week 17 against the Browns.

It was a fitting end to a record-setting regular season. Brown set the franchise record for receptions and yardage in a game with a 17-for-284 demolition of the Raiders, he became the first player in NFL history to have multiple 16-catch games in a single season, he became the first player in league history to record back-to-back, 125-catch seasons, and he set the record for most catches in a two-year span with 265. His 1,834 receiving yards are the fourth-most in NFL history. The scary thing is his season could have been even bigger had Ben Roethlisberger not sat out four games. Brown should be a force in the playoffs, and he will be a legitimate candidate for the No. 1 overall selection in fantasy drafts next summer.
