AB’s relationship with the Steelers and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger soured this past season as Pittsburgh failed to qualify for playoffs. Brown made it clear that he wanted out, and he also made it clear that he’d be playing “by his rules”… Whatever that means…
The drama train seems to have reached its final station in Oakland as Brown joins a Raiders team that has struggled greatly over recent years. The hope is that he will be able to pick up the team’s offence somewhat, and that he may be able to mend what seems to be a declining quarterback in Derek Carr.
