Steelers receivers coach Richard Mann said Antonio Brown looks "smoother" this season.
It doesn't sound like Brown has gotten complacent as he comes off a sparkling 110-1,499-8 season. "He doesn't really look like the same guy. He's made a transition," Mann said. "He's very confident. He's matured. He understands the concepts." Brown is going to be featured heavily once again this season, especially with Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery gone. Another 100 catches is well within reach. Jul 14 - 8:11 AM

Antonio Brown has fired his representation from Roc Nation, and is planning to return to Rosenhaus Sports.

It's a slow news day. Brown joined on with Jay-Z's Roc Nation not too long ago when it was the flashy, fun thing to do. Now, Roc Nation has lost its luster. Brown is entering year three of a six-year, $43 million deal. He finished second in the NFL with his 101 grabs and 1,499 receiving yards. Brown is a locked-in WR1.
Jul 11 - 12:43 PM

Antonio Brown's restructured contract with the Steelers converted $5.27 million of his scheduled $6 million salary into a signing bonus.

They Steelers are "kicking the can" down the road. Brown's future salary cap numbers increase by $1.3 million in years 2015-2017, but his number drops by $3.9 million in 2014. Brown, 26 in July, turned in a breakout 2013 campaign as Pittsburgh's go-to receiver. The former punt returner ranked second in the NFL in catches (101) and receiving yards (1,499), scoring eight touchdowns.
Mar 9 - 4:02 PM

The Steelers have worked out a restructured contract with Antonio Brown.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the move will free up $4 million in cap space. It's the Steelers latest attempt to get into cap compliance after extending Heath Miller and Troy Polamalu earlier this week. Brown was set for a $6 million base salary and is signed through 2017.
Mar 7 - 6:57 PM

Antonio Brown caught nine passes for 87 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 17 win over the Browns.

With the effort, Brown becomes the first player in league history to post at least five catches for 50 yards in all 16 games. His 1,499 receiving yards should end up second in the league. It's everything the Steelers were hoping for and more when they chose Brown over Mike Wallace. Capable of getting open at will over the middle of the field, Brown can also beat No. 1 cornerbacks deep. (Just ask Joe Haden.) Going on 26, Brown will be a WR1 for 2014.

Antonio Brown caught six passes for 105 yards in Week 16 at Green Bay.

Brown dominated targets with 13 of them. The next closest teammate was Heath Miller, who saw four passes come his way. It was Brown's fifth 100-yard game of the season, and he's topped 80 yards receiving nine times in 2013. The Packers secondary gives up a lot of yards, but Brown lost out on end-zone looks to Emmanuel Sanders and Matt Spaeth for touchdowns. Brown gets Joe Haden and the Browns to close out the season next Sunday.

Antonio Brown had five catches for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 15 win over the Bengals.

He added a second touchdown on a 67-yard punt return. Brown set the tone for the Steelers' win early, getting both of his scores in the first quarter. He continues to be one of the most reliable receivers in the league and has caught at least five passes in every game this season. Brown ranks behind only Andre Johnson and Pierre Garcon with 96 receptions. He'll be an obvious WR1 against the Packers in Week 16.

Antonio Brown's Week 14 stats have been finalized at five catches for 138 yards and one touchdown.

There was some controversy over Brown's stats because of the game-ending lateral play he was involved in. It turns out that his yardage from the play will stand, even though it looked like he received an illegal forward pass. Brown now has three 100-yard games in his last five outings as he preps for a matchup with the Leon Hall-less Bengals this week.

Antonio Brown caught five passes for 138 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Dolphins.

Brown continues to be a total freak with the ball in his hands. His big play in this one was a 43-yard touchdown that came on a simple shallow cross that he burst around/past a series of defenders on his way to the house. He added 55 yards on a last-second, wild lateral play in which at least five Steelers touched the ball. Perhaps fantasy's most underrated WR1, Brown now has 89 catches, 1,240 yards and seven touchdowns with three games remaining. He's a good bet to shred the Leon Hall-less Bengals in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 06:58:00 PM

Antonio Brown caught five passes for 59 yards in Week 13 against the Ravens.

Brown was targeted eight times on the night, finishing fourth on the team behind Heath Miller, Emmanuel Sanders, and Le'Veon Bell. Brown saw a ton of Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith in this one, and Smith has turned a corner in 2013. He's playing more physical. It's the first time Brown has been held under 71 yards receiving in the past six weeks. He'll be back on the WR1/2 radar next week against the Dolphins.
Fri, Nov 29, 2013 12:18:00 AM

Antonio Brown had six catches for 92 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Browns.

Brown was shadowed by Joe Haden all game, but beat him deep for a 41-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He had a team-high 10 targets and is one of the few receivers to get in the end-zone against Haden this season. Brown has 29 catches for 343 yards and three touchdowns over his last three games and will remain a WR1 in Week 13 against the Ravens.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 06:06:00 PM

Antonio Brown caught seven passes for 147 yards and two touchdowns in Pittsburgh's Week 11 win over the Lions.

Brown caught both of his scores in the first quarter, doing major work after the catch on both grabs. Brown capped the Steelers' opening drive by catching a quick out, shedding two tackles and racing to the house for a 34-yard touchdown. He scored a 47-yarder in similar fashion two and a half minutes later. Now up to 74/952/5 on the season, Brown is a legitimate WR1, and making the Steelers look smart for choosing him over Mike Wallace.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 05:25:00 PM

Antonio Brown caught six balls for 104 yards in the Steelers' Week 10 win over the Bills.

Brown was absolutely sensational in this game, also making a consistent impact on special teams and tilting field position with game-changing punt returns. Brown is probably never going to be a high-scoring wide receiver in terms of touchdowns, but he's an every-week WR2 in standard settings and borderline WR1 in PPR. Fire him up against the Lions in Week 11.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 04:19:00 PM

Antonio Brown was benched at the tail end of Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Brown missed an assignment that led to an interception. So even though the 2-6 Steelers were making mistakes all over the field, coach Mike Tomlin made an example of the NFL's leader in receptions. Regardless, it's already water under the bridge as Tomlin confirmed Brown will start Sunday's game against the Bills. Brown is a legit candidate to catch 120 balls this season and a borderline WR1 in Week 10.
Tue, Nov 5, 2013 12:28:00 PM

Antonio Brown caught five passes for 71 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 9 loss at New England.

Proving he's a complete receiver, Brown just ran straight past the secondary for a 27-yard touchdown on a go route in the second quarter. Of course, he also got his screens and dump-offs that the Steelers run to get their best YAC guy in space. Through eight games, Brown is on pace for a monstrous 122 catches, 1,402 yards and six touchdowns. Given the way Todd Haley is using him, it's a sustainable rate. Brown gets the Bills in Week 10.
