Default Antonio Brown...Overpaid?

This thread was on at least two other Steelers forums...did the Steelers overpay Antonio Brown? I personally believe the idea is absurd. What about you?

No brainer. But I did just see that the ESPN "All AFC North" team picked Wallace over Brown. Must be the same people coming up with that.

The only player on our team that is over paid would be Wallace. I personally hope they ditch him next year. He became a victim of his own ego!

His speed alone is worth a lot, and at 2 million, I fail to see how he's overpaid. If he receives a big deal without playoff performances to show for, i'll agree.

Antonio Brown is definitely worth the money in his contract.

I actually personally think Wallace has been completely underpaid for his entire tenure with the Steelers. Seeing him outrun everyone on the Giant's defense this past week tells me that we should do everything we can to re-sign him.

Although probably not overpaid per NFL pay scale, he is not even projecting a 1000 yards for the season at this point.

I know the love runs deep the board for these receivers, but as Sunday showed, without Brown, Sanders and Crotch did just fine and put up the standard 6 receptions 69 yards and 1 td production we have been seeing throughout the year from any of the wideouts.

I feel the 100 million dollar QB ( that spreads the ball around) and the system we run today ( aka dink and dunk ) has less need for 10 million dollar a year wideouts than in years past.

I agree...2 mill is not much at all.

I'm not even a big Wallace fan. He is well worth that.
