National media give plenty of opinions on Antonio Brown’s trade

There was no shortage of thoughts from the national sports media Sunday from the Antonio Brown trade to the Oakland Raiders.

From ESPN to the NFL Network and with the numerous social media posts, everyone had an opinion.

The Raiders traded a third- and fifth-round pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers for the wide receiver.

According to ESPN, Brown will receive a new three-year deal worth up to $54.125 million with over $30 million guaranteed. He will now be the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL. Brown had three years and almost $39 million left on his contract with the Steelers, none of which was guaranteed.

Good and bad, the talking heads went into overdrive with their takes on the details of the trade.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
