Antonio Brown Agrees To Deal Making Him Highest Paid WR In NFL

In his four-year career, he's only managed to play a full, 16-game season once.

Bell, 25, rushed for 1,268 yards and caught 75 passes for 616 yards in 12 games during the 2016 season and was the team's 2016 MVP. With Bell locked up for 2017, the hard work now lies ahead of the Steelers as they attempt to keep Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown together for the immediate future.

Brown has appeared in 101 regular-season games with 74 starts in his National Football League career, and ranks second on the Steelers' all-time receptions list (632), third in receiving yards (8,377), fourth in touchdown catches (50), and fifth in yards from scrimmage (8,496) and combined touchdowns (55). He led the league with 1,698 receiving yards in 2014.

Overdose deaths involving fentanyl and tramadol also increased , according to data from 2015 which is the latest year available. Deaths increased in all age groups , with adults aged 45 to 54 having the highest drug overdose death rate.

The Steelers have other irons in the fire - they used the franchise tag on running back Le'Veon Bell Monday - but that didn't stop them from locking up their best receiver well ahead of the end of his current contract. He previously also set a team regular season record with 236 yards rushing in a win at Buffalo last season.

"The tag is always an option, and it's something we'll use if necessary", Colbert said two weeks ago. Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is due $9.09 million in 2017; Peterson is owed $14 million. The 31-year-old Peterson is scheduled to count $18 million against the Vikings' salary cap if he's still on the team's roster at the end of next week. Last offseason, the two-time Pro Bowler released a rap song in which he said he wants to make $15 million a year. That puts Brown's salary at more than $15 million. He'll surpass A.J. Green into that top spot.
