Re: Did Steelers make a rash decision to sign Antonio Brown?
Antonio Brown came off a season doing something that no PLAYER in the history of the NFL had done. Have a 1000 yards receiving and 1000 yards returning in the same season. Made THE clutch catch of the year in 2010-11 for the Steelers in the B-More playoff game to come back from a 14 point deficit.
He was paid for performance plus the future. He had a high ankle sprain this year that derailed his entire season. High Ankle sprains are sometimes worse then a sprained knee. Especially for a guy who's entire game is predicated on quick stops and go.
