It appears Antonio Brown will be with another team next season.

On Tuesday afternoon, the 30-year-old tweeted a video containing highlights of his Steelers career along with a message saying: "Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years.time to move on and forward".

Not long after, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Brown requested a trade and that a source believes Brown "is exhausted of playing the scapegoat for the Steelers' problems and wants to show he can thrive in another offense". The Steelers won the game but missed the playoffs for the first time since 2013.

The NFL wide receiver was cited after being pulled over for driving in excess of 100 miles per hour in a 45 miles per hour zone on McKnight Road in Ross Township back on November 8, 2018. Brown hauled in 305 receptions for 3,199 yards and 22 touchdowns during his tie with the Chippewas.

But according to Megan Guza of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Brown didn't show up. However, his contract makes it unlikely that Brown would be traded. ESPN reported shortly afterwards that he has officially asked the team for a trade.

If traded before March 17, the Steelers would have a dead cap hit of $21.12 million.
