After nine seasons in Pittsburgh, All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown is headed out of town. The team agreed to trade traded the seven-time Pro-Bowler to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, ending a months-long saga that began after Brown was benched for the last game of the 2018 season for skipping practices and team meetings.

Here’s how Post-Gazette photographers captured Brown’s time in Pittsburgh, from his over-the-top training camp arrivals to his spectacular catches.
