Antonio Brown has restructured his contract.
As have Heath Miller and Shaun Suisham, clearing $6 million in cap space for the ever-needy Steelers. Brown has agreed to convert $2 million of his $8.25 million 2016 salary into a signing bonus that can be prorated over the next two years. Looking ahead, Brown might seriously consider a holdout next summer if the Steelers don't extend his team-friendly deal heading into his walk year. Sep 1 - 1:58 PM

Date:

Antonio Brown was held without a catch in Saturday's preseason game.

The Steelers only played Brown for one series. He'll likely be rested for the preseason finale. Brown should be drafted as a top-three wideout.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert says the team has no plans to renegotiate Antonio Brown's contract.

The sides met last Friday to discuss sweetening the six-year, $43.04 million deal Brown signed before the 2012 season, but Colbert says the meeting was merely a courtesy. "It was something that was here before I got here and I am sure it will continue after I am gone," Colbert said of the team's policy not to re-open old deals. "It is something that we believe in and it works for us, so I don't see it changing." It's understandable the Steelers want to stick with a bargain deal, they just have to hope it doesn't disenchant one of their best players.

The Steelers and the agent for Antonio Brown are scheduled to meet Friday to discuss a reworked contract.

Brown signed a six-year, $43 million contract prior to the 2012 season. He's clearly outperformed that money, racking up 305 catches for 3,984 yards with 26 touchdowns over the last three years. Although the Steelers have a longstanding policy of not reworking contracts that have more than one year left, it appears they're going to make an exception for Brown. Market value is roughly $14 million in average annual salary for arguably the least-coverable wideout in the AFC.

Antonio Brown is riding a 33-game streak with at least five catches and 50 yards.

Ben Roethlisberger is well aware of this record streak, as we've seen him force-feed Brown the ball late in games if there's any doubt. It means the unstoppable Brown has a 5-50-0 weekly floor, making him one of the safest players in both season-long and DFS leagues. Brown has 239 catches for 3,197 yards with 21 receiving TDs since Mike Wallace left Pittsburgh following the 2012 season.

Antonio Brown reported for Steelers training camp on time, as expected.

Brown made some waves back in April when he reportedly mulled a holdout and missed a couple voluntary workouts. He's since gained some perspective despite watching Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas net $70M deals. "Holdouts never go well. Just look at history. It always ends badly," Brown said Saturday. "It wouldn't be the best decision. I make a lot of money. I pull up to camp in Rolls-Royces." Brown will make $6M in base salary this season.

Antonio Brown reported to the Steelers facility Monday and is participating in voluntary workouts.

Brown didn't show up as the offseason program opened last week, sparking reports that he wants a new contract and was mulling a holdout. If that were true, Brown has apparently reconsidered digging his heels in. He likely knew he had little leverage as he's just three years into a six-year, $43 million deal. The Steelers have a staunch history of not renegotiating deals with more than one year left, even for players like Brown that led the NFL in both receptions and receiving yards last year. Agent Drew Rosenhaus will continue to try to get his client more money, but it's simply not going to happen.

Antonio Brown tweeted Wednesday that he isn't at voluntary workouts because he's spending time with his newborn baby.

Seems like a valid enough reason. "Just enjoying my new born Ali can not wait to get back with my teammates!," the tweet reads. While Brown may want a new contract, we don't see the Steelers caving in and giving him one.
Apr 22 - 12:35 PM

The Steelers have a longstanding policy of not negotiating new contracts until a player is in the final year of his current contract.

Exceptions have only been made for quarterbacks, who are often extended with two years left. Antonio Brown, digging in for a raise, has three years left on his current contract. Most seem to think the franchise won't cave even though Brown, who led the NFL in receptions last year, is the team's most valuable player after Ben Roethlisberger. This one could very well drag out for a while.
Apr 21 - 8:36 AM

Sources tell FOX Sports Antonio Brown is seeking a new contract and is mulling a holdout.

Brown signed a six-year, $43.04 million contract in July of 2012. Since, he's been the most productive wideout in the league, racking up 305 catches for 3,984 yards with 26 touchdowns. But his average annual salary of $8.39 million ranks 13th among receivers, so Brown won't attend offseason workouts and is also considering a holdout from both mandatory minicamps and training camp. Brown is absolutely invaluable to the Steelers, and he'll likely get a raise if he really digs his heels in. It's now a question of how long the saga will drag out.
Apr 20 - 10:47 AM

Antonio Brown caught nine passes for 117 yards in the Steelers' Wild Card loss to the Ravens.

It should have been a bigger game for Brown, who finished with 14 targets. He couldn't come down with a 29-yard touchdown in the first half, and had a 45-yard touchdown overturned in the fourth quarter. Brown's 129 catches this season were the second-most in NFL history and he led the league with 1,698 yards and 14 touchdowns. He'll be a top-three receiver in 2015 fantasy drafts.
Jan 4 - 12:33 AM

Antonio Brown caught seven passes for 128 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 17 win over the Bengals.

He also returned a 71-yard punt for a touchdown. Brown was targeted a team-high 13 times. His 129 catches this season are the second-most in NFL history. He also led the league with 1,698 yards and 14 touchdowns. Brown will have a matchup with Ravens CB Lardarius Webb for the first round of the playoffs.

Antonio Brown caught 7-of-9 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Week 16 win over the Chiefs.

One of Brown's missed connections was a drop in the end zone. Nevertheless, it was a good day against one of the league's better secondaries. Brown enters Pittsburgh's climatic Week 17 showdown with the Bengals the owner of an eye-popping 122/1,570/12 receiving line. He's one of the best players in football.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 05:06:00 PM

Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 123 yards in the Steelers' Week 15 win over the Falcons.

He caught all 10 passes that came his direction. Brown's best grab was a toe-tapping grab just before halftime that set the offense up at the one-yard line. Le'Veon Bell pounded in the touchdown on the next play. Brown has proven time and again that even the best corners in the league can't hang with him. Desmond Trufant was the latest victim. Brown now has at least five catches and 50 yards in 30 straight games. Watch him work next week against the Chiefs at home.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 04:34:00 PM

Antonio Brown caught nine passes for 117 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win at Cincy.

Just another day at the office for Brown. Matched up with Terence Newman for much of the day, he worked the intermediate timing patterns to perfection, showing unmistakably elite chemistry with Ben Roethlisberger. Brown now has at least eight catches in seven straight games and is up to 105 on the season with three games left. He'll be in the conversation for No. 1 overall WR in Week 15 at Atlanta.
