Lions Have Second Best Odds To Land Antonio Brown From Steelers

Adjust Comment Print

Antonio Brown ended his 2018 season with the Pittsburgh Steelers on an embarrassing note, and team owner Art Rooney II has clearly had enough of the distractions the star wide receiver has created. "We have time to make a decision", Rooney said according to Dulac.

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".

It might not come as a complete surprise, but the Steelers don't expect Antonio Brown on their roster in 2019.

The 30-year-old is signed through 2021 with an average salary of $17 million.

San Francisco isn't the only team with draft assets to facilitate a deal and the cap space to fit Brown's $22 million cap hit next season, then his $18 million and $19 million hits the next two years.

Still, another team must meet the Steelers' asking price for any theoretical trade, and it's no guarantee one will step up at the right return.

TMZ caught up to the Atlanta Falcons wide receiver and asked him about the possibility of Brown joining the team.

Adding numbers alone won't solve the problems the Steelers had previous year, but the fact Tomlin's considering structural changes is a sign that he realizes he needs to adapt himself.

The news comes on the heels of Brown's alleged altercation with several teammates in the week leading up to the Cincinnati Bengals game in which Brown was benched for his actions. "We good over here", he replied curtly.

"We'll see how things play out", Rooney said. However, the fact Rooney presented a willingness to depart with Brown means that trade offers for the receiver won't need to start as high as they would have if Pittsburgh was set on keeping him. And MyBookie believes the Lions are firmly in the mix to acquire Brown, who played collegiately at Central Michigan.
