Antonio Brown Sports Team Career

He was drafted in 2010 by Pittsburgh Steelers as a 6th-round pick and amassed more receptions than any other player in the league from his rookie season in 2010 through 2018.

During Antonio Brown’s first season with the Steelers, the team advanced to Super Bowl XLV but lost to the Green Bay Packers. He finished his rookie season with 16 receptions for 167 yards in ten games.

During his second NFL season, he became the first player in NFL history to have more than 1,000 yards receiving and returning in the same year. For his efforts, Brown was selected as a punt returner for the 2012 Pro Bowl.

In 2013, he became the only receiver in NFL history to record five receptions and at least 50 yards in every single game of an NFL season. Although his on-the-field productivity continued over the next several seasons, including leading the league in receptions and receiving yards in 2014, receptions in 2015, receiving yards in 2017, and receiving touchdowns in 2018, Brown’s relationship with the Steelers soured, especially with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and he eventually requested a trade.

In 2019, Antonio Brown was transferred to the Oakland Raiders, who then made him the highest-paid receiver in the league. However, his time in Oakland was short-lived, and following several off-the-field incidents, including a confrontation with general manager Mike Mayock, the team released Antonio Brown without him ever playing a regular-season game with the team.

Brown signed with the New England Patriots shortly thereafter but was cut after appearing in just one game. At the time, the NFL was investigating sxual assault allegations made against him.

After spending the rest of 2019 and beginning of 2020 as a free agent, he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he was part of the team that won Super Bowl LV. He was released near the end of the 2021 season after stripping off his uniform and running off of the field during a game against the New York Jets.
