PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - The Pittsburgh Steelers have an agreement in place to trade wide receiver Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders for third- and fifth-round picks in this year's draft, according to multiple reports early Sunday morning. 

Reports also say Brown will get a new contract worth 3-years, $50.125 million with a guaranteed $30.125 million, making him the highest paid receiver in the league. 

The trade cannot become official until March 13 when the new NFL year begins. 

Brown, who was reportedly reluctant to comply with a potential trade to Buffalo late last week, indicated via social media Saturday night that Oakland was his trade destination.

The Steelers will now have two third-round picks and one fifth-round pick in this year's draft. 

Last year, the Raiders were 4-12 with a 24-21 win against the Steelers in Week 14. The Steelers and Raiders do not meet during the 2019 regular season.
