    Steelers agree to deal AB to Raiders

    Antonio Brown finally has a new home.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers have agreed to trade their prolific but disgruntled wide receiver to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a third- and fifth-round pick, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Brown will receive a new three-year deal worth up to $54.125 million from the Raiders, with $30.125 million guaranteed, the source said. He previously had three years and $38.9 million left on his contract with the Steelers, with none of the money guaranteed.

    In the end, Brown converted the Steelers' four-year extension at $17 million per year into what amounts to $19.8 million per year in new money.

    By trading Brown, the Steelers will be forced to swallow $21.12 million in dead money against their salary cap, according to a source. It's thought to be the largest dead-money charge in NFL history.

    Brown recorded Hall of Fame-type production in Pittsburgh with 834 receptions, 11,207 yards and 74 touchdown catches in nine years, including an NFL-record six consecutive 100-catch seasons.
