Le’Veon Bell kept everyone on tenterhooks with his holdout, while there have been whispers of retirement around Big Ben in recent years. Toss in the drama surrounding an increasingly disgruntled Antonio Brown and you have a season that disappointed in a lot of ways for Steelers fans.

As the late season turned into the playoffs and ultimately the off-season, people wondered what would happen with Pittsburgh and one of its biggest stars.

It turns out those reports were premature. Brown’s future was still “up in the air”.

But after two days of swirling rumors, we now know where he’s going…

Welcome to Raider Nation, Antonio Brown!

Joe is an actor who grew up eating, living and breathing sports. He spent many an afternoon on the soccer or baseball field in his youth (and even gave several other sports a shot) before a series of events put him on the path to pursuing a performing career. Subsequently, he's worked almost every other type of job you could imagine while trying to support that endeavor. Whenever he's not working any of those jobs, he can often be found watching, playing or discussing sports in some way. Most of that banter revolves around the Mets, Giants, Rangers or Manchester United. His short term goal is to fully convert his fiance into a rabid sports fan, not someone who leaves the room whenever he turns a game on.
