Brown signed a six-year $43.o4 million contract in July of 2012 according to Rotoworld. The deal would’ve paid him $6 million in base salary this season before his deal was restructured. It shows a commitment to the team and staying with the Steelers though, but lets not forget he is getting some bonus money.
2014 was supposed to be Antonio Brown’s 1st year of unrestricted free agency. 5-yr extension from 2012 now restructured twice for cap relief

As a result, Brown, who got $73k to sign in 2010, has likely received over $17M in signing bonuses in the last 20 months
