The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced a restructure of Antonio Brown’s contract to give the receiver much more money for the upcoming season. They also announced their intentions to sign him to a long-term deal before the end of the season.

The Steelers added an additional $4 million to Brown’s pay, all as a signing bonus. The payday is well deserved, as Brown has arguably been the best receiver in the NFL for the last two seasons, and this is the second season they’ve rewarded him for it.

The Steelers are smart to sign Brown for as long as they can, especially with them losing stud receiver Martavious Bryant to a yea- long suspension. Brown will be called on to take a bigger role – and he’s getting a way bigger paycheck to do it.
