Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown stands on the sideline before an NFL football game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Sunday, Dec. 30, 2018, in Pittsburgh.

The Oakland Raiders have traded a third-and-fifth-round draft pick to the Steelers for disgruntled wide receiver Antonio Brown, according to multiple reports.

ESPN reports Brown will receive a new three-year deal worth up to $54.125 million, with $30.125 million guaranteed. That most certainly means he will be part of the franchise when they relocate to Las Vegas in 2020.

Brown, who many consider one of the game’s best, had 104 receptions for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns last season for Pittsburgh. But he became disenchanted with the franchise, especially with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and demanded to be traded.

That will bring him to Oakland, and then Las Vegas.

Here’s more from ESPN.
