The Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown became the highest paid receiver in the NFL on Monday when he signed a 5 year $68 million dollar extension. Brown took the opportunity to show just how far he had come.
Brown played at non-power five conference school, Central-Michigan. He also wasn't drafted until the 6th round at 195th overall. He also received this pretty harsh scouting report leading into the draft which he tweeted out shortly after signing his extension.

Brown has certainly earned his big payday. He currently holds the all-time record for most ever receptions over a four year span, hauling in 481 receptions between 2013-2016. He definitely has proven this very early scouting report wrong and shows no signs of slowing down.
