Antonio Brown has jersey placed in Hall of Fame
While some players have begun envisioning themselves in Canton, Antonio Brown is already there. Sort of.
According to MLive.com, the No. 84 jersey that Brown wore on January 1 against the Browns (how ironic) now resides in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
What is the significance of this particular piece of apparel, you ask?
Well, on that day, the 24-year-old receiver became the first player in NFL history to amass 1,000 receiving yards and 1,000 return yards in a single season. All in all, he totaled 2,211 yards-from-scrimmage in 2011.
Not too shabby for a sixth-round pick.
