Steelers reportedly rejected significantly better Pats’ trade offer for Antonio Brown

"Referencing the 6'8" Brown as "big bro", Wynn (who is 6'2") expressed his satisfaction seeing a fellow lineman get paid. The Steelers rejected the offer because they wanted nothing to do with New England.

Now, after trading him to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for third- and fifth-round picks, Pittsburgh will be eating $21.1 million in dead money on their 2019 cap so Brown can catch TDs for another team.

There is certainly risk attached to Bell because of his decision to sit out a year and all of the carries he took for the Steelers, but both the Jets and Raiders can afford to take that risk.

Michigan Basketball: 3 predictions for Wolverines at Michigan State
For the Spartans to win, they'll need similar play from Winston, McQuaid, Tillman and Goins which could be easier said than done. Second chance opportunities kept Michigan State in the game in the first half and they helped put Michigan away in the second.

On Monday morning, the Raiders kicked off the National Football League free-agency tampering period by agreeing to give former Patriots and 49ers tackle Trent Brown a four-year, $66 million contract. Brown, under the tutelage of New England offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia, became an elite tackle. Brown started all 19 games for the Patriots, and didn't miss a snap throughout their playoff run, which culminated with a victory over the L.A. Rams in Super Bowl LIII. Now he'll be protecting the blind side of Derek Carr.

The Patriots will have a new left tackle for the second straight year. Wynn, drafted 31st overall out of Georgia a year ago, missed all of last season after tearing his Achilles during the preseason.
