All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown is exchanging the black and yellow for the silver and black.

After his nine-year tenure with the Pittsburgh Steelers ended in a bitter divorce, Brown is headed to the Oakland (soon-to-be Las Vegas) Raiders. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Pittsburgh agreed to send Brown to Oakland on Sunday in exchange for two draft picks — a third-rounder and a fifth-rounder. Brown will also reportedly sign a three-year, $54 million contract extension, with $30 million guaranteed. The deal will make him the league's highest paid wide receiver. The trade cannot be formally announced until Wednesday, when the new league year begins.
