Antonio Brown Trade Not Off The Table Says Steelers President

Antonio Brown Trade Not Off The Table Says Steelers President

Rooney says that "all other options are on the table", which indicates that the Steelers are willing to trade Brown.

The Steelers found themselves in this situation - where their best skill-position player has demanded a trade - after Brown skipped out on practice before the team's do-or-die season finale against the Bengals and didn't play in the game.

While the Steelers' season is in the books, they aren't allowed to make any roster changes until March 13 - that's the first day of the National Football League off-season. "We're not closing the door on anything at this point", Rooney said.

"As we sit here today, it's hard to envision that", Rooney told the newspaper when asked if Brown would be with the Steelers when they open training camp in July. Brown sent out a cryptic tweet on Thursday following Rooney's comment with a picture of the Brown and Rooney shaking hands and the caption, "Good Business #Boomin". Brown enters the third year of a five-year, $72.7-million extension signed before the 2017 season. They are desperate for wide receiver help though, and Brown is the style of receiver 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan covets.




The 30-year-old Brown has fueled speculation that he wants out of Pittsburgh since the end of the campaign by posting photos of Rice from his 49ers days on social media.

In 15 games, Brown recorded 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns, setting a new team record for majors.

Rooney said the cap hit would not play into the team's decision.

Pittsburgh is reportedly expected to consider trade offers for Brown ahead of the free-agency period.
