At his best, free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown was heralded as one of the greatest pass catchers in NFL history. During a six-year run from 2013-18 with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the former sixth-round draft pick averaged 114 receptions, 1,524 yards and 11 touchdown grabs. Brown is the only player to ever record at least five receptions and 50 receiving yards in every game over a 16-game season ? He did that twice.
At his worst, “Mr. Big Chest” ? he gave himself that nickname ? burned his bridges in Pittsburgh, never played a down for the Oakland Raiders, appeared in one regular season game for the New England Patriots, endured multiple accusations that required police involvement, and saw his production disappear faster than anyone could’ve ever imagined.
It’s no surprise that at the height of his career, Brown was among the NFL’s highest-paid receivers. Spotrac lists the Madden 17 cover athlete’s career earnings north of $70 million, which doesn’t include outside endorsement deals with companies like Xenith helmets, Pepsi, Pizza Hut and Nike, the latter of which ended its relationship with Brown last year.
That money fuels Brown’s lavish lifestyle, which includes owning three different homes.
One is a six-bedroom home with basketball court, artificial turf field, and two-story treehouse that sits on a three-acre lot in Gibsonia, PA, just north of Pittsburgh. Brown’s been trying to sell the home, but as of April 2020, it’s still listed for sale with a price tag of $1.91 million.
The second is a 3,500-square-foot house in Alamo, California. Brown reportedly only lived there a few months during his stint with the Raiders, and the house was listed for sale in December 2019 for $3.22 million.
Then, there’s the behemoth 12-bedroom mansion in Florida that is Brown’s permanent residence.

Brown paid $6.6 million for the house at 3600 Estate Oak Circle back in 2016, according to the Sun-Sentinel. The custom-designed home was a record for the Hollywood, Florida neighborhood, which is just south of Fort Lauderdale and about 20 miles north of Miami.
Brown gave a tour of his home and massive shoe collection to Joe La Puma of Complex in 2018. He also showed off his digs to social media influencer Deestroying last October.

AB’s Florida home made national news in January 2020 after he was arrested by the Hollywood Police Department for allegedly assaulting a moving truck driver outside the residence. Brown was formally charged with felony burglary conveyance, misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor criminal mischief on March 20.
Brown’s former agent Drew Rosenhaus cut ties with him in earlier this year after multiple women came forward, confronting the NFL star with sexual assault allegations. Brown recently hired Ed Wasielewski of EMG Sports as his agent, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Suffice to say, even though fallen NFL star Antonio Brown is still without work, he’s sitting comfortably at home while the coronavirus pandemic and spread of COVID-19 keep us all indoors.
