Raiders’ Antonio Brown gives away gear, hugs during pregame warm-ups
Oakland Raiders receiver Antonio Brown made the day of several young fans Thursday afternoon at University of Phoenix Stadium.
Immediately after pregame warmups, the former Steeler trotted to youngsters standing near the front row at one of the end zones. He proceeded to sign autographs, give away his gloves and hug a few children.

Brown, who wasn’t expected to play in the team’s preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals, still ran routes and caught passes from quarterback Derek Carr in pregame.
