Analysis: The Steelers have made re-signing Brown, who is in the final year of a six-year, $43 million contract, an immediate priority and expect to have a deal done before free agency opens. That should be good news for both Brown's fantasy owners and Ben Roethlisberger's.

Analysis: The Steelers did not release terms of the contract, but multiple media outlets reported that it is technically a four-year extension worth $68 million.

The contract takes Brown through the 2021 season.
