Antonio Brown caught 8-of-10 targets for 155 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Week 6 win over the Chiefs.
Brown was the only option in the passing game most of the day, and aside from a mistimed route which led to an interception and a poor decision which led to a Chiefs recovery on a free kick, he did not disappoint. His best play came on what should have been another interception with the game in the balance late in the fourth quarter, but Brown was able to hang onto the tipped pass despite a big hit and sprint down the sideline for the score. Brown now has 18 catches for 312 yards and a touchdown over his last two games. He will be the top overall wide receiver next week against the Bengals. Oct 15 - 7:37 PM

Antonio Brown hauled in 10-of-19 targets for 157 yards in the Steelers' Week 5 loss to the Jaguars.

Coming off a disappointing performance, Brown was the only part of the passing game which seemed to work against a tough secondary. He created a 49-yard gain on the first offensive play of the game with a "veteran move" – read push off – against Jalen Ramsey and set up another scoring opportunity with a 23-yard gain at the end of the half. He did his best after the break to keep the Steelers in the game, going up high for a deep grab over the middle and catching a touchdown which was negated by a penalty, but it was not enough for a sputtering offense. Despite the struggling offense and a tough trip to Kansas City up next, Brown will remain a high-end option.

Antonio Brown was held to four catches for 34 yards on nine targets Sunday in the Steelers’ Week 4 win over the Ravens.

The Ravens sold out to contain Brown on Sunday as the Steelers rode Le’Veon Bell to a stress-free victory. Brown still sprinkled in a few moments of brilliance, though there weren’t as many highlights as usual this week. Brown was the intended target on Ben Roethlisberger’s lone interception on a play where he bobbled it into the waiting hands of Eric Weddle. He was originally ruled down by contact but the play was overturned on review. Brown came inches away from scoring in the fourth quarter, setting up a one-yard bunny for Le’Veon Bell’s second touchdown of the afternoon. He gets a tough matchup against the Jags in Week 5, but if anyone can get the better of second-year stud Jalen Ramsey it’s Brown, who entered Sunday leading the league in both receiving yards and catches.
Oct 1 - 5:42 PM

Antonio Brown delivered 10 catches for 110 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets Sunday in the Steelers’ Week 3 loss to the Bears.

Brown was his usual free-wielding self on Sunday, getting open at will, especially in the first half when he logged seven of his 10 catches. That included a seven-yard touchdown strike from Ben Roethlisberger in the second quarter. That was his 51st touchdown reception, which ties him with Lynn Swann for third on the Steelers’ all-time list. On Sunday Brown also became the fastest receiver ever to 650 catches, beating Marvin Harrison’s old mark by three games. AB gets the Ravens on the road in Week 4.
Sep 24 - 5:47 PM

Antonio Brown caught 5-of-11 targets for 62 yards in the Steelers' Week 2 win over the Vikings.

Brown was trailed by Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes much of the day. Brown drew a long DPI penalty against Rhodes on one play where he beat him, but other than that Rhodes won this battle. Brown was stuck on 3-28-0 receiving deep into the fourth quarter before making a couple grabs away from Rhodes. Brown has never had 100 yards in a game against a Mike Zimmer defense. Look for Brown to get back to his usual 100-yard days next week against the Bears.
Sep 17 - 4:52 PM

Antonio Brown caught all 11 of his targets for 182 yards in Sunday’s victory over the Browns.

The NFL’s best wide receiver was the entire offense for the Steelers on Sunday, notching 58 more yards from scrimmage than the rest of the Pittsburgh offense combined. This was the fifth time that Brown has cleared 100-yards receiving against the Browns over their past six meetings. Brown remains a fantasy Gibraltar for lineups heading into a matchup with Xavier Rhodes next Sunday.
Sep 10 - 4:40 PM

Antonio Brown nabbed both of his targets for 28 yards Saturday in the Steelers’ third preseason game.

It was an efficient night for Brown, who was on the field for two drives. He nabbed a 15-yard slant for his first catch and capped his outing with a 13-yard grab in traffic. Coming off a 12-touchdown campaign in 2016, AB has been the first receiver off the board in most fantasy drafts this summer.
Aug 26 - 11:08 PM

Steelers signed WR Antonio Brown to a four-year, $68 million extension through 2021.

Including a $19 million signing bonus, the extension will pay Brown $17 million annually and makes him the NFL's highest-paid wide receiver, passing A.J. Green's $15 million annual average. The top wideout of his generation -- and arguably the best we've seen since Randy Moss -- Brown has 100-plus catches in four straight years and double-digit touchdowns in three straight. Brown turns 29 in July. Because his game relies on route running and not elite athleticism, Brown should age well into his 30s.
Feb 27 - 5:25 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports there has been "significant progress" on long-term contract talks between the Steelers and Antonio Brown.

The goal is to have a new long-term deal hammered out by March 9, the start of the new league year. Brown has one year left on his current deal and will probably become the league's highest-paid receiver on his next contract.
Feb 27 - 12:17 PM

Speaking Thursday, GM Kevin Colbert said he wants contract-year WR Antonio Brown to retire as a Steeler.

"I can say unequivocally we want Antonio Brown to retire as a Steeler," were Colbert's exact words. He went on to confirm that talks have already begun, and are a "priority" for a team also dealing with Le'Veon Bell's free agency. The best receiver in the NFL turns 29 in July.
Feb 16 - 2:00 PM

According to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, "several teams" have inquired on the availability of Antonio Brown, but the Steelers have said "hell no."

It doesn't come as a surprise. Despite all of the off-field "antics" that have been talked about the past month, Brown remains a fixture in Pittsburgh and part of the present and future. President Art Rooney II has already said an extension for Brown is a priority. In an interview with Freeman, however, Brown did admit he has some "growing up to do" as he's about to turn 29.
Feb 8 - 10:26 AM

According to Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Antonio Brown "frequently ran the wrong patterns" when he was frustrated this season.

Cook attributed the lapses to a "lack of focus" but also wondered whether Brown ran the wrong routes intentionally as a way of pouting for not getting enough touches. In the article Cook makes the case for trading Brown, citing his "look-at-me antics," including an incident against the Dolphins when he prevented the Steelers from running their two-minute offense by jogging back to the line of scrimmage. Brown was also frequently flagged for excessive celebration and was criticized by both Mike Tomlin and Ben Roethlisberger for live-streaming Tomlin's post-game speech after beating the Chiefs in the Divisional Round. Despite some of these head-scratching distractions, Brown was still extremely productive this year and has already begun extension talks with the Steelers.
Feb 5 - 10:02 AM

The Steelers have opened extension talks with contract-year WR Antonio Brown.

This was expected after Steelers president Art Rooney II confirmed the team plans to extend Brown this offseason. A source tells ESPN's Jeremy Fowler a deal could get done "well before training camp." Brown is owed $8.71 million in the final year of his contract. He should land in the range of $14M annually.

Speaking Tuesday, Steelers president Art Rooney II said the team anticipates extending contract-year WR Antonio Brown.

The best receiver in the league is due $8.71 million in the final year of his contract. Going on 29, Brown has every incentive to get a deal done this year. Speaking about Brown's supposed "distractions," Rooney deemed them "little annoyances, with the emphasis on little." Brown isn't going anywhere.
Jan 31 - 3:47 PM

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said Antonio Brown's antics are "wearing thin" on coaches and teammates.

It's been a rough couple of weeks for Brown. First, he upset coach Mike Tomlin by live streaming Tomlin's postgame speech after the Divisional Round. A week later, Brown drew criticism from Ben Roethlisberger for "pouting" about not getting the ball enough. High-maintenance receivers are nothing new to the NFL, of course, and Brown's behavior will be easy to overlook if he keeps producing. Entering the last year of his deal, Brown remains likely to land a huge extension. The current negativity surrounding Brown has been pushed by the team and is likely part of contract negotiations.
