Business is boomin'.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have reportedly reached a deal with their Pro Bowl wide receiver, Antonio Brown, which will make him the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL.
AB's 4-year contract extension is reportedly worth $68 million and will keep him in the black and yellow through 2021.
The way the contract is structured, Brown will make $17 million a year over those four years and $18.5 million a year over the first three years.
The 28-year old star, who had just one year left on a 5-year $42 million contract which he signed back in 2012, is the first player in Steelers history to finish with 1,000 receiving yards and 10 receiving touchdowns in three straight seasons.
