Night net null Antonio Brown dazzled Steelers fans last season en route to one of the most productive seasons by a Pittsburgh wide receiver, but the team has refused to renegotiate his contract, according to signed a five-year extension to his rookie contract in 2012 that was worth close to $42 million. He's due $6 million this year,

$8.25 million in 2016 and $8.71 million in 2017. But after catching 129 passes for 1,698 yards and 13 touchdowns last season, he'd like to make a bit more.

It is something that we believe in and it works for us, so I don't see it changing.”Brown and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, threatened in April that the receiver would hold out this season, and Brown even missed the first week of voluntary conditioning to prove his point. However, he's back with the team and apparently ready to perform as he did last year. Related News Top 10 Pittsburgh Steelers of all time
