Following news of the deal, Brown released a picture of himself in a Raiders uniform. Brown has led the NFL in touchdown catches and receiving yards since 2010. The seven-time Pro Bowler’s final season in Pittsburgh was tumultuous due to highly-publicized feuds with QB Ben Roethlisberger and head coach Mike Tomlin.
Brown was benched for the team’s season finale, a game Pittsburgh needed to win to make the playoffs. The Steelers ended up losing, leading Brown to demand a trade soon afterwards. Pittsburgh will receive a third and fifth round pick from the Raiders in the upcoming NFL Draft.
