Steelers president open to trading A.B

Antonio Brown Peter King

The Steelers couldn't trade Brown until March 13th.

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

Brown's future with the team clearly is up in the air.

"There's not much we can do right now; we have time to make a decision", Rooney told the outlet.

"We'll look at all the options", Rooney said. We're not going to release him, that's not on the table.

"All options are on the table", Rooney said.

Brown remains under contract with the Steelers through the 2021 season. He also said the team is not closing the door on the possibility of smoothing things over with Brown, but he is not optimistic that will happen. "So, there's no reason why they have to hurry and make a decision right now, which would be a decision made out of weakness and made out of vulnerability".

Like clockwork, 49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley continued the team's efforts to recruit the WR, by tweeting a hand-waving emoji at Brown, in response to the receiver posting a picture of himself shaking hands with Rooney.

Trading Brown comes at a significant cost. He signed a four-year, $68 million extention in February 2017.

The four-time first-team All-Pro and seven-time Pro Bowl selection has led the National Football League in receptions twice (2014, 2015) and receiving yards twice (2014, 2017).

Perhaps the Colts or Jets, two teams flush with cap room, could place an inquiry. Pittsburgh may ask for a first-round pick for the receiver. That brought about plenty of speculation that Brown had played his final game in Pittsburgh's black and yellow. We all know there have been problems with Brown's attitude and his relationship with the team over the last two seasons.

Rooney says cap considerations will play a factor in how the Steelers move forward. "We have a way to go before we feel good about that".

The Brown situation is certainly a weird one. All the recruiting in the world doesn't matter if the Steelers trade him elsewhere.
