Potential Jets target Antonio Brown demands trade from Steelers

Share

Over the last couple of months, there's been some drama between Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but things were taken to a whole new level on Tuesday when the speedy wideout posted an interesting message to Steelers fans on Twitter, making it seem like he's done with the team.

Brown, a four-time All-Pro, has been embroiled in a dispute with the Steelers, who openly have discussed the possibility of trading him.

Brown, 30, has been the subject of widespread trade speculation after he failed to show up to work the day before the season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals. Rooney also said the team has "left everything open" when it comes to Brown's future with the franchise.

After that, forecasters will be focused on a "quick, nearly clipper like system" that will likely bring more snow. Snowfall from Sunday and Monday lingered into the week as below-freezing temperatures gripped the area.

Fitting Brown under the salary cap, if he were to stay on his current deal, would be possible for the Eagles. Of course, one would imagine there will be a number of suitors for the talented wide receiver, but every team should make sure they have a structure in place to foster a good relationship with Brown or else the new marriage could turn toxic quickly. Brown was benched for Pittsburgh's final game of the regular season after skipping a walk-through and not communicating with staff regarding a knee injury. Since then, he has recorded more than 1,000 yards receiving in seven of his nine seasons in the league. He has since filed for custody of his daughter in the wake of the alleged incident.

On top of that, the WR chose to not show up for the court hearing and was found guilty of reckless driving. The woman did not press charges and Brown was not arrested.
