The year of the 3 year deal! I'm glad he 's on board but what's with all the 3 year deals?

If I'm not mistaken, don't the players become restricted free agents after their 3 years? This would make their new contracts essentially 4 years.

Pouncey, Worilds, Sylvester, Scott, Butler, and Dwyer still left. We're gettin' there, it's been a good 2-3 days :bananadoggywow:

I wish I could be at camp to see Brown returning punts and kickoffs....he had about 3500 return yards in college and might be a pleasant surprise!!!

With all the returner talented players we have on the roster, more than likely yes

That's what i'm thinking. These guys can play ST's AND WR. Tomlin loves him some versatility. And, no, Logan at RB is not a good fit imo. lol

I think the FO typically only does longer deals for earlier round players. 4 + yr deal is better if the guy sticks but I think typically gives out a bigger bonus.

Antonio Brown impresses in OTA's and now get's a deal. These last few days have been great for the signing! I can't wait to watch his return skills at training camp this year!

I would not rush out and buy a Logan jersey if I were you.

I think Brown might be a pleasant surprise for the Steelers. I know they have not put the pads on but everything you hear about him is good. Like everyone else Logan will probably be gone this year.
