Business is definitely booming for Steelers receiver
who spent some time in Santa Clara last week as part of the Super Bowl 50 festivities. While there

Jr.’s world record for the most one-handed catches in a minute.
With the help of Washington’s
at quarterback Brown smashed through Beckham’s record of 33 catches, who had
throwing to him, with 40 grabs. If you watch the video it looks like he could do it all day long. Cousins is extremely accurate with no pressure and one spot to continuously throw to. So he’s got that going for him.
Cincinnati linebacker and all-around douchebag Vontaze Burfict will indeed be sitting out the first three games of the 2016 season. ESPN reports that Burfict’s three-game suspension was upheld by appeals officer Derrick Brooks on Thursday afternoon.
Burfict’s suspension was technically for repeated violations of the NFL safety rules with regard to violent hits and it was ultimately the helmet hit on Steelers receiver Antonio Brown that knocked him unconscious in the Steelers’ 18-16 win over the Bengals in the Wild Card game.

The ESPN NFL Nation AFC North writers have awarded Steelers coach Mike Tomlin with the AFC North coach of the year award.
