Antonio Brown is joining a Raiders franchise that knows a thing or two about great wide receivers.

And the man at the top of that list, Tim Brown, welcomed AB to Oakland with a tweet on Sunday.

It took the new Raiders wide receiver a few days, but he finally responded to Brown.

Tim Brown is the Raiders' all-time leading receiver with 14,734 yards. He amassed that total in 16 seasons with the Silver and Black, and added 200 more yards in one season with Tampa Bay.

In just nine seasons with the Steelers, Antonio Brown already has 11,207 receiving yards.

The Raiders had hoped Amari Cooper would be the next great receiver in franchise history. That didn't happen. Now, their hopes rest with No. 84.
