Business in boomin'.
Former Raiders receiver Antonio Brown could make a whole lot of money with his new team. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday morning that the Patriots added a $20 million option year to AB's contract for 2020.

The Patriots agreed to a one-year contract with Brown on Saturday, hours after the Raiders released the star receiver. New England gave Brown a $9 million signing bonus, and he could earn up to $15 million this season.
Now, Brown possibly could earn even more as a Patriot.
Brown asked the Raiders to release him Saturday in an Instagram post after the Raiders voided $29.125 million in contract guarantees due to conduct detrimental to the team. His wish was granted, and now the four-time All-Pro joins a team that beat his old Steelers, 33-3, in their season opener Sunday night.
