Antonio Brown, Highest Paid WR; Good or Bad for Pittsburgh?

A four-year, $68 million extension went to Pittsburgh Steelers' wide-out Antonio Brown. That makes him the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL. This deal comes with a $19 million signing bonus plus $18.5 million in the first three years of the contract. His fourth year, into 2021, he’ll earn $12.5 million.There’s without a doubt he is the best receiver in the game currently. Brown is up...

For One Wide Receiver, Canton Is One Destination That Hasn’t Been Caught
For One Wide Receiver, Canton Is One Destination That Hasn’t Been Caught

Terrell Owens has been snubbed again from being inducted in the Hall of Fame after becoming eligible in 2016. Statistically, there isn’t a reason found as to why he wasn’t on the first ballot. Owens has proved throughout his career that he deserves to be in Canton, Ohio. Owens is second in all-time receiving yards (15,934), third in career receiving touchdowns (153), and eighth in receptions...

Russell Westbrook Remains Loyal to OKC
Russell Westbrook Remains Loyal to OKC

Well the news of Russell Westbrook and his decision came earlier than most expected. Some can say they believed he would either be traded or test out free agency and head back to his home state of California…..ahem Lakers....since his former teammate Kevin Durant signed a deal with the Golden State Warriors. Well neither happened as Westbrook renegotiated a three-year $85.7 million extension with the Oklahoma City Thunder with the third year as a player option. A response from Kevin Durant is what fans seem to be waiting for, but nothing but a simple response was said. “That’s a touchy subject. I’ll see once everything dies down,”    - Durant said on congratulating Westbrook on his new deal. Interesting answer since the only way Westbrook found out about Durant’s move was through text message after the fact. Now was Westbrook’s decision a wise choice to make….I’m not so sure. He had one more season left before he became a free agent, which would’ve gave him time to welcome in...

Kobe Bryant…The Face of L.A.

“I can't believe how fast 20 years went by; man, this is crazy. This is absolutely crazy, and to be standing at center court with you guys, my teammates behind me, appreciating the journey that we've been on. We've been through our ups, been through our downs. I think the most important part is we all stayed together throughout. We didn't run. We played through...
