The trade sending Antonio Brown
to the Raiders isn’t official yet Louis Lipps Jersey , but an agreement is in place for the wideout to land with a new team and sign a new contract when he gets there.Brown’s desire for a new contract that would make him the league’s highest-paid receiver was seen as the biggest obstacle to a deal with the Bills that was in play late last week. During a Sunday appearance on NFL Network, Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus said the Bills “decided it wasn’t a great fit for them” while talking to the Steelers and that the decision not to move forward didn’t come down to his client.“You know what, I don’t know that there was ever an option for us, quite frankly,” Rosenhaus said. “We never got in that position. It really wasn’t something that was up to us to decide. I don’t think the Steelers and the Bills were able to work something out.”Rosenhaus said Brown was happy about the “fresh start” he’s getting with the Raiders and cited head coach Jon Gruden and quarterback Derek Carr as reasons why he’s looking forward to the move. The $30 million in guaranteed money probably doesn’t hurt too much either. For the Steelers’ offseason workouts Alejandro Villanueva Jersey , it was mission accomplished." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteBehind the Steel Curtaina Pittsburgh Steelers communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsSteelersOddsShopAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Latest NewsSteelers Film Room2018 NFL Draft AnalysisLatest NewsFiled under:Latest NewsPittsburgh Steelers achieved the ultimate goal throughout offseason workoutsNew,4commentsFor the Steelers’ offseason workouts, it was mission accomplished.EDTShareTweetShareSharePittsburgh Steelers achieved the ultimate goal throughout offseason workoutsCharles LeClaire-USA TODAY SportsWelcome to the dog days of summer. As the meteorological calendar turns from spring to summer, the National Football League goes on hiatus until the end of July when teams start to report to their respective training camps. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the few teams who still has their training camp away from their home city John Stallworth Jersey , July 25th is the date when they will report to Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA.When looking back at the offseason workouts, which include rookie minicamp, Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and mandatory minicamp, there is no way anyone can say the Steelers didn’t accomplish their ultimate goal.What is the ultimate goal?It isn’t getting the rookies acclimated.It isn’t having the new free agents getting to run with their new teammates.And it certainly isn’t getting the team in front of the media to help silence the critics regarding the rocky offseason of 2018.No Jordan Berry Jersey , the ultimate goal is to just stay healthy — mission accomplished.I can only imagine the joy it brings Mike Tomlin and his coaching staff when they think about having all of their players ready and available when training camp starts. Granted, a freak injury or accident during these dog days could change that, but you don’t see players with lingering issues, or severe injuries which took place during those practices in shorts.If you think back to last year’s offseason workouts, you might remember two players being lost for the year due to injury. Jerald Hawkins tore his quadriceps David DeCastro Jersey , and Jake McGee tore his ACL. This year the team didn’t have any injuries like this, and Mike Tomlin realizes what lies ahead.“I like the way we finished with our work here, continuing to add elements to situational football to educate our guys,” Tomlin told Teresa Varley of Steelers.com. “We did some mayday field goal-like work at the end of the two-minute drill. We have been working the two-minute drill, we just added to that today as an example of just increasing the complexities of the play and making it more football-like.“I like the energy. I left them with the message that they need to show up ready. We have outlined that more in detail about what specifically what that means for each guy. Rest assured that conditioning and readiness has to be the most significant element of their time here in the upcoming weeks.” The players now have time away. Time to vacation Chukwuma Okorafor Jersey , but also time to ready themselves for the upcoming season. For those players who were on the 9-6-1 2018 team, they know all too well how things can spiral out of control, and they want nothing more than to have the opportunity to right those wrongs during the regular season.But you take it one step at a time, and the Steelers have successfully gotten through their offseason workouts injury free. Next up? Training camp...which is another beast in itself. July 25th can’t come fast enough.
