Initial reports of Antonio Brown’s deal to sign with New England pegged the contract as a one-year pact with $10 million guaranteed that could be worth up to $15 million.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Now, though, just hours before Brown can actually officially sign with the Patriots, ESPN reports that there is actually a second-year option in the deal for 2020 that’s worth $20 million and becomes guaranteed if executed.

In reality, the deal likely remains a one-year agreement with the second year tacked on simply for salary cap purposes. It’s similar to the way Darrelle Revis’ contract was structured when he arrived from Tampa Bay and played one successful Super Bowl season in Foxborough.
