Perhaps he was forced to leave, but before westbound Oakland, he expressed his feelings to the city. Beijing on March 14, Brown and Raiders of the contract came into effect, Brown in downtown Pittsburgh purchased the electronic billboard advertising one that says ”Thank you, Pittsburgh.” Signature 84, as well as photos of AB Brown and signature.
It is reported that advertising on billboards Allies Avenue and Grant Street, at the corner of Brown – sponsored. 14, Brown held a press conference in Auckland, finally over two months since the Steelers and farce. Brown produced in the last week of last season with the team contradiction, then seek public trading at the end of January, he does not worry some of the social media comments, and the requirements for a large contract, making the Steelers with his high draft picks in exchange for sign becomes difficult, and ultimately paid the Raiders just signed a three plus five will sign him to Oakland.
