La Canfora: Steelers expecting a first-round pick for Antonio Brown

Owner Steelers won't cut Antonio Brown but 'all other options' on table

Ian Rapoport reported that National Football League executives believe the Pittsburgh Steelers could fetch a second-round pick or a second rounder paired with a lower selection for disgruntled wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Brown's biography on Twitter used to say "Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro WR".

Brown made headlines when he sat out the team's Week 17 game against the Bengals, which reportedly was prompted by a blowup with Roethlisberger.

Not to be outdone, Sanders also put Big Ben on absolute blast - calling him a "bad leader" while saying the quarterback has been "disrespectful".

Brown removed the Steelers from his Twitter bio on Sunday afternoon, marking yet another sign that the wide receiver is determined to suit up for someone else next season. You can not turn your back on your brothers, not on the Pittsburgh Steelers organization that gave you an opportunity to make you who you are in terms of Antonio Brown the football player. But Snoop was surprisingly calm when he was asked for comment on the Antonio Brown situation. Pittsburgh owner Art Rooney II said the organization won't release Brown during the offseason, but "all other options are on the table". It's insane, because I don't like to see, but I feel like Antonio brought it on himself.

"When Art Rooney came out and said that, it's pretty much he's gone", Sanders said.
