Brown thanks the contract with the Raiders after leaving the Steelers

 Oakland (USA), .- Receiver Antonio Brown said today, in his first statements after signing with the Oakland Raiders, that although his heart “will always be in Pittsburgh” feels “proud to belong now to a franchise with such a big story. “

After a two-month confrontation with the Steelers, the receiver finally landed in a new place he wanted to reach at the start of the league year.

After signing a three-year contract and $ 30 million in guaranteed money with the Raiders, Brown said he was happy to join a franchise with so much history.

“This is legendary, it’s an honor to be here, I know there are some tremendous players who have been in this building,” Brown said.
“I’m excited to be in the same building as the players who have been great in the past and I’m excited to be here and help the franchise reach a winning level.”

Brown and the Steelers had disagreements during the 2018 season that facilitated Brown’s switch to the Raiders.
In a series of statements that tried to show politeness, Browns said: “Pittsburgh is having a bad day,” because he stopped belonging to the Steelers, while the general manager of the latter, Kevin Colbert, said: “We want the best to Brown, but the movement was for the benefit of the team. “

“Pittsburgh will always be my family,” Brown explained. “Those guys gave me a chance when I was a 21 year old, but it’s time to go, I think it’s all about how people feel and I know I made people feel really good, inspired when they see me go to work, when they see me play, I know Steeler Nation is having a bad day today, “he said.

Minutes later, at the same conference, the Steelers offered a farewell message, saying they had “changed Brown to the Raiders,” said Colbert, adding that they believe “that the compensation will give us four selections in the first 83 and 10. in general in the next NFL Draft, it can benefit our effort to improve our team in 2019 and beyond. “

“Antonio is still one of the best players in the NFL, but we believe that this movement was in the best interest of the Steelers.” (EFE)
