Report: Antonio Brown Looking For $18-20 Million Annually On New Deal

Why haven’t the Raiders traded for Antonio Brown yet?

According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, it’s not a matter of trade equity, but more a matter of Brown’s contract – or more accurately, the contract that he wants.

La Canfora says that once the disgruntled wide receiver is traded, Brown is believed to want between $18 and $20 million annually on a new deal. The Raiders, to this point, have obviously balked at the notion of throwing that kind of money at Brown and there’s no telling which side is prepared to dig in longer.

Brown’s current deal is already the second most lucrative contract of any wide receiver in the league with an average of $17 million per year. Only Odell Beckham Jr. ($18M/year) has a contract paying out more per year and Beckham Jr. is four years younger than Brown.

One thing we’ve learned about Jon Gruden is that he isn’t the most patient when it comes to dealing with these kinds of affairs. If the matter drags on long enough, Brown could find himself in search of a new trade partner willing to pay him $19 million per year instead of $17 million per year.

  1. Just say no. We don’t need a primadona. Great receiver, but great teammate and leader. No. Draft a WR and save.

  2. I say go for it he is a proven WR, and that’s what we need. Give him 76 mil for 4 years. We have the money but not the player. He is better than Cooper will ever be, Coop droped to many passes. Plus he is great under presser.

  3. Here the actual top five of the greatest online sports betting sites that you can go.
    After that, it’s all as up to the Random Number Generator (RNG) within the machine.
