His trade culminated with a new contract that makes him the highest paid WR in the NFL.
Brown could not wipe the smile off of his face as he sat next to head coach Jon Gruden and first-year general manager Mike Mayock.
After a tumultuous, but largely successful nine years in the Steel City, Brown is ready for the next chapter and new relationship with QB Derek Carr.
Carr and Brown’s budding bromance have been quite the story with rumors that the All-Pro wide receiver would be traded to the Raiders.
The two played together in the Pro-Bowl and their relationship has continued to blossom ever since, as you can see by Brown’s recent tweet after being traded to the Raiders.

Brown was so excited after his press conference that he couldn’t wait to make a ‘special delivery’ to Carr himself at his home.
It should be an exciting season for Raider Nation as they play their final games in Oakland before moving to Las Vegas in 2020.
With the addition of arguably the game’s top wideout, the Black Hole will not be short on excitement this season.
