Rapoport: Raiders “Continually In The Mix” For Antonio Brown
The Oakland Raiders are looking to get Derek Carr a weapon and are reportedly targeting one of the premier receivers in the league.
The Raiders were one of the three teams to reach out to the Pittsburgh Steelers about Antonio Brown last week. Ian Rapoport backed that up on Tuesday saying that the Raiders could be one of the favorites to land the 30-year-old receiver.

“The Oakland Raiders at this point do seem to be the team to watch for Antonio brown there” Rapoport said on NFL Network, “at least the team most interested in him” Rapoport later said that while other teams have been in the mix for Brown, the Raiders have been in the mix the entire time.
Brown is entering the second year of a four-year deal and will make $22 million during the 2019 season. In 2018, Brown caught 104 passes for 1,297 yards, and a career-high 15 touchdowns on 168 targets.
