Brown’s three-year deal increases with this move to the Raiders. It went from $38.925 million to $50.125 million, according to Pro Football Talk.
Schefter also says that with incentives, Brown could potentially receive $54.125 million. It’s now $30.125 million in guaranteed money.
The Steelers are receiving a 2019 third-round draft pick and a 2019 fifth-round draft pick in this proposed deal.
The 30-year-old Miami, Florida native — who will be 31-years-old in July — made 15 starts this season. He had 104 receptions for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns. The 15 touchdowns were a career-high; surpassing his previous record of 13 touchdowns in 2014.
He has had six straight seasons, where he had more than 1,000 receiving yards. He has seven 1,000-plus receiving yardage seasons in his career.
In his final game of the season, he had his best game in a 31-28 loss to the New Orleans Saints, he had 14 receptions for 185 yards and two touchdowns.
