Default Re: Did Steelers make a rash decision to sign Antonio Brown?

In no way is Brown making anywhere near Brandon Marshall money. His contract since it was an extension that included his last year is actually a reasonable amount of money to pay a 1,000 yard+ receiver who would have had those numbers again if not for injury. He is an incredible hard worker and will only get even better. His hands to make the catch are phenomenal . Besides where would they be now without his signing. Wallace gone, and Brown restricted and possibly leaving after the year? Brown's money would have only been even higher had they waited.

The guy had like 3 returns for TDs called back this year and he was the best receiver on the team.

I think it's one of the best moves they have ever made breaking protocol and signing someone when they were only a RFA. They may try to do the same with E Sanders but for not nearly as much.
