Antonio Brown will finally relocate his business and hope to keep it booming in a new uniform.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have agreed to trade their disgruntled perennial all-pro receiver to the Oakland Raiders for a third- and fifth-round draft pick, according to multiple reports. According to NFL Network, Brown will also get a reworked contract that covers three years and pays $50.1 million with $30.1 million guaranteed. 

The move cannot become official until Wednesday, when the NFL’s new league year officially begins at 4 p.m. ET.

So comes an end to Brown’s nine seasons in Pittsburgh, where he was a seven-time Pro Bowler and finishes as the second-most prolific receiver in Steelers history (in terms of catches, yards and touchdowns) behind only Hines Ward.

However, despite a reputation as a tireless worker, Brown had worn out his welcome by the end of the 2018 season, which ended with him deactivated for a must-win game in the regular-season finale.

Since then, Brown said and did plenty in a bid to be liberated from the Steelers but did little to burnish his off-field reputation as a diva in the process.
