Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has now joined the rest of his teammates for offseason workouts after missing the first week of Phase One last week.
Brown hinted a few times last week that he would be attending workouts in the near future as he was busy celebrating the birth of his new child.
When Brown didn’t show up initially, it was reported that he was unhappy with his current contract that he signed in 2012 and that he was mulling a long offseason holdout.
So much for that. It looks like the media either had some bad info on this or Brown quickly realized that he was fighting a fight he could not win.
The former sixth-round draft pick out of Central Michigan signed a five year, $41.7 million contract extension with the Steelers on July 27, 2012 and that included a $8.5 million signing bonus. Brown is scheduled to earn a base salary of $6 million in 2015 after leading the league last year in both receptions and receiving yardage.
Players are not required to attend any offseason sessions until June when the mandatory minicamps get underway.
