Raiders receiver Antonio Brown pays tribute to Muhammad Ali
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown is using some of the money earned in his new contract to honor one of the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali. According to TMZ Sports Brown wanted to honor Ali in a flashy way so he ordered a piece of custom jewelry that comes in the shape of a bee, has butterfly wings and is wearing the number 84.
Gabriel the Jeweler hooked up Brown with the custom made piece that features 5 carats on the Cuban chain and 50 carats on the pendant. Gabriel the Jeweler is well known in the circles of famous athletes and has done work for Amari Cooper, Odell Beckham, and Jalen Ramsey. He also designed the engagement ring for J.J. Watt.
The exact price of Brown’s piece wasn’t disclosed, but it’s estimated to cost right around $250,000. That is a big price to pay for the average person, but Browns new three-year deal has over $30 million guaranteed s0 $250,000 is just a drop in the bucket.
The hope for Raiders fans this upcoming season is that Brown’s game will be as flashy as the bling he wears off of it. Even with all the distractions that Brown brought off the field for the Pittsburgh Steelers, there was never any question about his talent. Last season Brown caught 104 passes for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns. The Raiders have been looking for a true number one receiver for Derek Carr and it looks like they have finally found it with the former Central Michigan star.
