Steelers WR Antonio Brown Wants To Retire With Pittsburgh
Mike Wallace is now an unrestricted free-agent not expected to return to Pittsburgh due to their tight cap constraints and his desire for a substantial salary. While Wallace has not completely ruled out a return, he has been clear team loyalty will have no affect on his free-agency.
With his new contract, the team will not have to worry about Antonio Brown escaping in free-agency until at least 2018. With recent talk of possible veteran releases like James Harrison, and restructured contracts like LaMarr Woodley; KDKA-TV asked Brown how dedicated he was to remaining with the Steelers, and if he would be willing to take pay cuts along the way to remain in Pittsburgh until retirement.
With zero hesitation, Brown replied with a resounding yes.
"Iíd sacrifice whatever itíd take. I know how special it is to be hereÖI always say I want to finish what I start, and wouldnít it be great to finish my career here. [Itíd be] something special."
"You donít want to be a journey guy in this league. You want to stay in one place, and have people know thatís where youíre gonna be. You donít want to bounce around the league and have people say you were good for a little bit, chasing that with no respect for game. I respect this game and love this game, and know Iím part of something bigger than me."
"I definitely feel the specialness of me being here and I appreciate that fact."
