Antonio Brown seems very happy to be on the Raiders.

Brown, who was traded to the team this past weekend, said he was “grateful” and “excited” to be with the organization in a video posted to the team’s Twitter Wednesday night. (RELATED: Oakland Raiders Trade For Antonio Brown, Give Him Contract Worth More Than $50 Million)

The Raiders also posted a pretty cool of Brown’s arrival, and I think it’s fair to say he is very happy to not be on the Steelers anymore.

Things are already off to a fast start in Oakland, and I’m here for it. I really hope Brown and Jon Gruden together lives up to the hype.

The two of them together is going to be an electric factory. It’s going to be even better if the team falls flat on its face.

Of course, the best case scenario from a laughs perspective is if the whole team implodes and we just get another version of what we got over the past few months in Pittsburgh.

Brown was going scorched earth trying to fight the whole world, and it eventually got him what he wanted, which was to be traded.
