It’s official, the Oakland Raiders have acquired superstar wide receiver Antonio Brown.
From the moment the trade was announced on Twitter, Brown couldn’t contain his excitement, tweeting and posting a plenty on social media. The former sixth-round pick has established himself as an elite receiver in the NFL, and the numbers back it up.
Since entering the league in 2010, AB has put up astounding stats; let’s take a look at the dynamic playmaker’s career by the numbers.
9 - Being an overlooked prospect hasn’t stopped AB from setting the NFL world ablaze for nine seasons. His first season with the Raiders will be his 10th NFL campaign.
7 – During his nine seasons, the former Central Michigan product has been selected to seven Pro Bowls, including the past six.
1,834 – In 2015, Brown set a career-high in receiving yards with 1,834.
15 – Just last season, the Miami native found the end zone 15 times, a career-high.
7 – Altogether, Brown has seven 1,000-yard receiving seasons under his belt, and hasn’t had less than 1,000 yards since 2012.
3 – Reaching 1,000 yards in a season isn’t an easy task, but eclipsing 1,500 yards? Absurd. On three separate occasions, Brown has gone over 1,500 yards, posting 1,698 (2014), 1,834 (2015), and 1,533 (2017) receiving yards throughout his career.
4 – Being named to a Pro Bowl is an honor, but being selected as a First-Team All-Pro is as good as it gets. Brown has been named as a First-Team All-Pro four times, most recently in 2017.
74 – Brown has totaled 74 receiving touchdowns in his career, and added four special teams touchdowns, along with one passing touchdown.
11,207 – In addition to his 74 receiving touchdowns, Brown has totaled 11,207 receiving yards, which ranks him 34th all-time and fourth among all active players.
130 – Brown has suited up for 130 games in his career and started in 103 of them.
837 – When you’ve posted 100-plus receptions for six consecutive years you’re bound to have a high reception total, and over the course of his career Brown has 837 receptions to his name.
79 – The longest reception of Brown’s career went for 79-yards, and now with Derek Carr as his quarterback, I imagine he’ll see plenty of deep passes from No. 4.
284 – AB has had too many freak performances to count on one hand, but none were greater than his 284-yard afternoon in 2015… which happened against the Raiders no less. It’s the most receiving yards he’s had in a single game.
42 – As if there haven’t been enough impressive stats to ensure that Antonio Brown is a certified stud, the man has surpassed 100 yards in a game 42 times.
Raider Nation certainly have a lot to look forward to with the addition of Brown. Watching Carr and Brown connect on the field will be exciting to watch for years to come.
