Report: Steelers WR Antonio Brown won’t hold out, hopeful for new deal
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown won’t hold out for a new contract and will attend training camp when it begins on Thursday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.
Brown has two years remaining on the $42 million contract he signed with the Steelers in 2012, and will make $6.25 million in base salary this season, which ranks 13th among NFL receivers.
Schefter reports that Brown is hopeful and confident a new deal will be discussed before the start of the regular season.
Brown, 28, had a career-high 136 receptions in 2015, when he was selected to his fourth Pro Bowl and picked as a first-team All Pro for the second time.
The Steelers begin their regular season on Sept. 12 against the Washington Redskins.
