The Rush: Antonio Brown Kicks Off Season by Being Rich

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a curious exit from the divisional round of the playoffs last year, so Antonio Brown decided to make a grand entrance for the beginning of this season. The wideout arrived in camp in a helicopter yesterday, perhaps celebrating the fact that he will be the highest paid non-quarterback offensive player in 2018, pulling in $17 million. He’ll no doubt be pulling in at least 100 catches, something he has done in the last 5 seasons.

Forbes put out their annual list of highest paid entertainers and Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather topped the list by pulling in $275 for about 30 minutes of “work” vs. Conor McGregor. The only other athletes in the top 10 were soccer players Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Finally, Triple Crown winner Justify has officially retired from racing. The stallion will no doubt continue his own “work” in retirement by siring some potential future champions. Currently, the highest paid stallion horse in the US is Tapit, whose stud fee is $300,000.
