Antonio Brown Out With Extreme Frostbite

Billy Woods | August 8th, 2019

Last week, Oakland Raiders new star receiver Antonio Brown posted pictures of his feet, which led many to speculate that Brown’s feet were blistering. After meeting with a foot specialist, it was discovered Brown is suffering from a case of extreme frostbite, caused by entering a cryotherapy machine without proper footwear.

The foot issue has and will kept Brown off the field, with no official timetable for return. Even head coach Jon Gruden and quarterback Derek Carr also admit they don’t know when the All-Pro receiver will return to practice.

Brown was open about his willingness to depart from the Pittsburgh Steelers organization. In mid-March, the plan from Brown worked. The Steelers traded Brown to the Raiders for a third-round and fifth-round pick. The trade was a winner for both sides, as the Steelers and Brown were publicly unhappy with one another, and the Raiders acquired an all-time great receiver for two draft picks.

Once Brown landed with the Raiders organization, his contract was reworked with significant new money and brand-new guarantees. The new contract is for three-years and worth $50.125 million with a maximum value of $54.125 million after incentives. Brown also will receiver $30.125 million guaranteed, which is more than he would get from the Steelers, as the Steelers were unwilling to give him any guarantee at all.

Luckily for Brown, star trades normally don’t work out too well for the star being traded. The star is usually traded to an overly bad team, with no future winning in place. In this scenario, Brown was traded to the revamped Raiders, who had a complete change in culture, coaching and roster in the past year. Brown is seemingly going from one organization who he was clearly unhappy with, to an organization desperately trying to compete and being a Super Bowl contender.

Regarding Brown’s foot injury, no timetable for return has been listed, but Brown should be available come regular season time.
