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.
