New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall and Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown had fantastic seasons last year for their respective teams. Marshall set a new Jets' franchise record for the most receiving yards (1,502) and receptions (109), and he also became the first player in NFL history to have 1,000 yards receiving with four different teams.
Brown, on the other hand, was the best receiver in the league as he caught 136 passes for 1,834 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Everybody loves a little bit of friendly competition, and that's exactly what the Jets wide receiver wants to have with the Steelers wide receiver in the upcoming 2016 NFL season.

The Jets' wideout has challenged the Steelers' star on Instagram to run for more receiving yards next season than him, and if he does, he will gift him his custom Jets-themed Porsche GT3. However, if Brown fails to get more receiving yards than Marshall, he has to give him his No. 84 Rolls-Royce Wraith.
Brown has responded to the bet and according to TMZ, he said: "He don't really wanna do that. He just wants some PR. He too old to be doing that. The RR is about $100k up [from the value of the Porsche]. If he really serious, CALL ME ... I'll gladly accept. Don't Internet it."
We'll have to wait and see if there is any official confirmation on this challenge, but it will certainly make it an interesting competition between the two if it is accepted. Especially when the Steelers play against the Jets in October this season.
