The Pittsburgh Steelers have traded wide receiver Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders, as first reported by... well, Brown himself.

The Raiders sent a 2019 third-round pick and fifth-round pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for Brown, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Raiders are also adding guaranteed money to Brown’s current three-year deal, per Schefter.

We first speculated that Brown could potentially land with the Raiders back on March 4. Based on various reports, the Raiders maintained interest throughout the past few weeks and were the odds-on favorites all along.

Now, Brown will face the Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes twice a year.

Over the past six years, Brown has averaged 114 receptions, 1,524 yards, and 11 touchdowns per season. He has averaged 6.3 catches and 93.8 yards per game in six career regular-season games against the Chiefs. He has four touchdowns in those games.
