Antonio Brown is getting some of his money early.
The Steelers franchise receiver restructured his deal, NFL Media's Mike Garafolo reported Wednesday. A photo of Brown looking as though he just finished signing something with his agent Drew Rosenhaus standing over him emerged early in the morning on the wideout's Twitter.
Garafolo is reporting Brown will now earn north of $10 million this year after being due $6.25 million initially. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport added that the new money (with an $8.975 million signing bonus) comes with the promise of a new deal next year, according to a source with knowledge of the contract.
