After skipping practice and being benched in Week 17 against the Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has found something else to do instead of returning his teammates’ texts.
According to TMZ, the star wide receiver requested a special piece of jewelry from Gabriel the Jeweler, who has made jewelry for Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr, that reflects Brown’s pursuit of being the greatest wide receiver of all time.

According to TMZ, the ring is 6.5 carats and is made up with 1,000 diamonds into the shape of a goat. While the specific cost of the ring isn’t known, it’s estimated to be valued at over $20,000.
Given Brown counts for $21 million in dead cap money next season if the Steelers try to trade him — one of the main reasons they wouldn’t want trade him — it’s pretty clear Brown will be able to afford this incredible piece of work.
