Scroll down for more updates.

It’s looking like the Antonio Brown drama in Pittsburgh is finally coming to a conclusion. Ian Rapoport broke the news Thursday night around 11:30 p.m. “Mr. Big Checks” will continue his career with the Buffalo Bills.  

UPDATE (7:00 a.m. Friday): Buffalo Bills GM Brandon Beane confirmed the trade to not have happened Friday morning. Antonio Brown, moments after news went viral of him going to Buffalo, commented on a NFL Instagram post saying, “Fake news 🚨.”

The Packers, Raiders, and 49ers remain interested in the veteran receiver.

UPDATE (12:41 a.m. Saturday): Antonio will not be dawning a Bills’ jersey but instead a Raiders’ jersey.  AB broke the news himself by tweeting out a photo of him in the black and gray.

Ian Rapoport is reporting that the deal cost the Raiders two picks in the 2019 draft, a third and fifth round pick. He also noted a restructured contract will also be leaning towards Antonio’s favor. His new reworked contract will also make him the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL.

The 30-year-old receiver is coming off his 6th consecutive 100+ reception season. AB has spent the past nine seasons with the Steelers but requested a trade at the beginning of 2019. His frustrations were linked mainly towards QB Ben Roethlisberger and the front office of the Steelers.
