A week after losing WR Amari Cooper in free agency, Oakland landed a very capable replacement in former Detroit Lion and Pittsburgh Steeler WR Antonio Brown. Cooper turned down a 5-year deal from the Raiders to sign with division rival Denver, leaving Oakland without a clear cut #1 receiver. The Raiders went to Plan B, striking up talks with Brown within hours of Cooper’s announcement. The two quickly reached an agreement on a 3-year, $31. 82m contract. Brown told the press he was looking to win a Super Bowl, and who best to achieve that goal than signing with the most recent Super Bowl Champion? Second-year pro WR Grady Ferguson has the potential to be a future #1 receiver, but he still needs to refine his game. Brown said he has already received ‘Welcome to Oakland’ texts from several Raider players, including QB Leonard Wright and FB Marcel Reece.
