Business won’t be boomin in Buffalo, but it may be in the Bay Area.
Pittsburgh Steelers broad recipient Antonio Brown made an Instagram Live post Friday and said he would reveal his new team shortly:

So did Gerry Dulac of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Three teams “still alive” in races for Antonio Brown, per source. Deal could be completed soon, tho.
If Oakland is one of the three registered teams, Silver and Black undoubtedly have an edge over competitors thanks to their draft capital. The team holds No. 4, No. 24 and No. 27 overall in the April draft in Nashville, Tennessee.
Separation with the No. 4 election seems unlikely given the high price tag and the almost certain likelihood of a blue-chip defensive prospect such as Alabama Quinnen Williams, Kentucky Josh Allen or Ohio State Nick Bosa waiting.
But if Raiders are willing to give up a late first rounder, then this would seem to work, especially considering that Oakland has over $ 64 million in cap space to use on Brown and others, Over the Cap . Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network also said that Steelers is looking for a first round of exchange in exchange for star wideout:

Michael Gehlken of Las Vegas Review Journal reported that it is “ ] thought [Brown would] welcome to join [the] franchise “:

About Raider’s surface as a strong speaker for Antonio Brown – the desire for a new contract has been an obstacle – it is assumed that he would welcome to join franchise. A person near Brown said 2020 move to Las Vegas a factor in his thinking. No state income taxes in Nevada.
No matter where Brown blows up, a move from Pittsburgh in the near future is quite safe with the reports that have arrived late.
