Byrd spent the first three years of his career in Carolina before joining the Cardinals in 2019. He caught a career-best 32 passes for 359 yards and a touchdown last year in the desert. The 5-9, 180-pound Byrd was originally signed by the Panthers as an undrafted free agent in 2015 after his career at South Carolina. He spent time on the Panthers practice squad in 2015 and ’16 before being elevated to the active roster toward the end of the season. Byrd also has some experience as a punt returner, averaging 9.4 yards on 12 career returns, 11 of which came in 2018.

For his career, Byrd has 44 receptions for 488 yards and three touchdowns in 28 games including three starts.

Cheap New England Patriots Antonio Brown Jerseys 2019

Back in March, before the Antonio Brown saga involved feet and a helmet, it was a relatively standard dispute of a disgruntled player riding an elliptical and demanding a trade from his team. The Steelers had no desire to keep him, but they still thought highly enough of him that they didn’t want a good team to have him. After a false start with the Bills, they believed they’d found a solution by shipping him to the Raiders.

That solution was only temporary. Brown’s relationship with his new team, specifically GM Mike Mayock, deteriorated rapidly over the summer, and when he no longer had any financial security, yesterday he demanded to be cut, which the Raiders quickly did. Hours later, he signed a one-year deal with the Patriots that included a $9 million signing bonus. Brown would be on a perennial playoff team within Pittsburgh’s conference. Whoops.

As reported in a column Saturday night by Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, the Steelers knew in March that the Patriots wanted Brown, but wouldn’t satisfy their rivals’ wishes, even if that meant settling for a lackluster trade return. From Robinson:

According to a source familiar with New England’s interest in Brown last spring – including the talks between the Steelers and Patriots – it came down to this: Pittsburgh didn’t want Brown in New England. The Steelers knew they’d likely have to grapple with the Patriots in the 2019 playoff picture. Beyond that, there was already bitter feelings born out of competition between the two teams (not to mention the whole LeGarrette Blount fiasco in 2014). Sending Brown into the arms of the Patriots and Bill Belichick would not only be costly to Pittsburgh’s own playoff chances, it would border on humiliating. Especially if the deal wasn’t for a significant package in return. It would mean waving the white flag to all the parties the Steelers simply didn’t want to surrender to. From Brown to Bill Belichick to Tom Brady.

“Pittsburgh just wasn’t going to do it,” said a source familiar with the Patriots’ pursuit of Brown. “It was never going to happen. No matter what [agent Drew Rosenhaus] thought or whoever else, there was no way the Steelers were sending him to New England.”

Pittsburgh didn’t do it, but it happened anyway. And so, at the final tally, the Steelers ended up with a third-round pick, a fifth-round pick, and the hope that rookie receiver Diontae Johnson will eventually make everyone forget about AB; the Raiders ended up with nothing; and the Patriots ended up with one of the best receivers in the NFL on an absurdly team-friendly contract, playing across from Josh Gordon. What did we all learn from this fiasco? It’s unclear, but to quote J.K. Simmons’s character in Burn After Reading, “I guess we learned not to do it again.”
It’s safe to say that Tom Brady is excited about having Antonio Brown as a teammate.

Prior to the New England Patriots’ season-opening showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers, NBC Sports’ Al Michaels said that that Drew Rosenhaus, Brown’s agent, told him that Brady has offered to house Brown during his early stages in Foxboro.

“Brady told Brown to ‘come move in with me until you get settled into New England,'” Michaels said.

Michaels also shared his conversation with Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who broke the news to Brady that New England was going to sign the four-time All-Pro. Brady, after initially telling Kraft that was “100 percent in” on the signing, went back to tell Kraft that he is “1 million percent in” on the acquisition of Brown, who led the NFL with 15 touchdown catches in 2018.

If Brown does take Brady up on his reported offer, it would make for the greatest collection of talent under one roof in NFL history. Brady, arguably the greatest quarterback in NFL history, has six Super Bowl titles and four Super Bowl MVP awards to his credit. During the 2019 season, Brady will move into second all-time in career touchdown passes and passing yards.

Brown, who like Brady was a sixth round pick, is the only receiver in NFL history to record at least 100 catches in six consecutive seasons. His 9,145 receiving yards since 2013 is the most by a receiver in NFL history over a six-year span.

The one thing that eluded Brown during his nine seasons in Pittsburgh is a Super Bowl ring, something he will look to earn with Brady as a member of the Patriots organization. Brown will reportedly sign his one-year deal– that includes $9 million guaranteed — on Monday with hopes of making his Patriots debut next Sunday in Miami against the Dolphins.

“He wants to have a great season. He wants to win a Super Bowl,” Rosenhaus recently told ESPN. “He looks this as a great opportunity for him to sign with a team that has dominated the league for the past decade.

“This is a dynasty, and he has an opportunity for Antonio to play for a dynasty. So the future is now for Antonio. This is a chance for Antonio to do something that he hasn’t been able to do during his illustrious career, which is to win a championship. That’s the immediate goal, and that’s all he’s thinking about right now.”
