No. 31: Antonio Brown

Publish date:

The Steelers rewarded Antonio Brown for his career-best 1,834 yards last season by restructuring his contract to boost his 2016 pay to $10 million. For Brown to improve on his record year, Ben Roethlisberger needs to stay healthy. In the four games that Roethlisberger missed due to injury, Brown had just 17 receptions for 235 yards and not a single touchdown. The Roethlisberger-Brown connection is so good, expect to see the receiver add a few NFL records to his already otherworldly legacy. Last year, he was just seven catches short of Marvin Harrison's single-season record of 143, and 130 yards short of Calvin Johnson's single-season record of 1,964.
