What NFL fans across the country feared is actually happening: Antonio Brown will be catching passes from Tom Brady this season. Following his release from the Oakland Raiders on Saturday, Brown has decided to sign with the New England Patriots, he confirmed on Instagram.

Brown is set to make up to $15 million on a one-year deal with the Patriots, including a $9 million signing bonus, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Brown was free to sign with any team in the league at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, and it didn't take him long to agree to terms with the reigning Super Bowl champions, who just so happen to be facing his former team in the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1. Brown will not be eligible to play in the game, however, as he was not on the roster as of 4 p.m.

In New England, Brown joins a receiver room that features Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman and recently reinstated Josh Gordon, forming arguably the best trio at the receiver position in the NFL if everything runs smoothly.

I've always wanted to support AB, I think he's truly one of the greatest ever. Though he's quirky and dramatic, unfortunately it doesn't stop there.This whole Raiders saga was more than a bit much, and regardless of his stats and the Pats wins, I could care less about his career now. The bullshit he played on Gruden and the raiders was wack and showed a complete lack of integrity, and I'm not even a raiders fan.I don't wish him any ill will, but I feel his career will be on a slow descent at best from now on. He's on the same track as Ocho, Owens, and Des, who found themselves more and more ostracized from the NFL, for seemingly even lesser infractions.I honestly don't see a long and successful career for him w the pats, and can't imagine him falling in line with any team, ever.

Patriots had something to do with this. This was a act by AB so he would get released by the Raiders, so the Patriots could sign him. The Pats should be under investigation for tampering
