Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers agree to move forward with trade

20 February 2019

Antonio Brown met with Art Rooney II on Tuesday to discuss his future with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Sure enough, the meeting occurred and ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that "everything was cordial", which appears to be true based on the photo that Brown took with Rooney after the meeting, which Brown posted with a caption that reads that he'll "always have appreciation and gratitude towards the Rooney family and the Steelers organization". The NFL Network's Albert Breer reported that the Steelers agreed to work on a trade, but Brown and his camp do not have permission to speak to teams themselves. Over the weekend, he took aim at Tomlin and Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for their role in the deteriorating relationship between Brown and the club.

Brown has no guaranteed money left on his existing deal but he made it clear in an Instagram video on Tuesday he wants that deal to be reworked.

"If your squad want to win and you squad want a hungry wide receiver whose the best in the whole world, someone hit my phone", Brown says (H/T Pro Football Talk). Of course not. And Brown is doing a great job of promoting himself to all the other 31 teams in the league on social media.

"If your team got guaranteed money, tell them call me".

PFT notes, however, this might be Brown's goal - by driving away potential trade partners, he could possibly force the Steelers to release him, allowing him to choose his destination team.

However all of this plays out, the Steelers are again one of the teams to watch this off-season.
