STEELERS SPLASH THE CASH

The Pittsburgh Steelers got the bulk of their offseason questions answered today, with the news breaking that they had made decisions on their two biggest free agents.

First, they decided to franchise tag LeVeon Bell, who has been one of the top runners in the league. It will allow them to work on a longer deal to keep the back, and give them leverage going forward.

And second, they finally paid Antonio Brown. The league’s craftiest receiver got the richest deal for a receiver, scoring $68 million over four years.

The deal has been due for Brown, who is locked up now for the next five years with the team, and it’s apparent that they have their mind on another title before Big Ben hangs it up.
