Steelers WR Antonio Brown officially requests trade

Antonio Brown

He was not seen as a star coming out of college and seemed nearly an after-thought when he was drafted in the sixth-round by the Steelers in the 2010 draft.

What is Antonio Brown doing?

Brown has been with Pittsburgh his entire career but his relationship with the team has soured over the past year.

The Steelers said they'll consider trade offers for Brown, but won't release him.

If this is indeed the end for Brown as a member of the Steelers, he will go down as one of the organization's best receivers of all time. If Brown is on the roster beyond five days from the start of the new season, he will receive a $2.5 million bonus. With Howie Roseman clearly intent on adding weapons and explosive players, could the Eagles have interest in acquiring the Steelers star wideout, Antonio Brown? He's a four-time first-team All-Pro and seven-time Pro Bowler who has racked up more than 9,000 receiving yards and 67 touchdowns in the last six seasons. In addition, there is a still a possibility that the Eagles could extend quarterback Carson Wentz this offseason, which would have a major impact on the salary cap in 2019.

Maybe he'll have a new team by then.

Still, Roseman is one of the most creative general managers in the National Football League and has three picks in the first two rounds - meaning the idea of bringing in Brown will without question cross his mind.
