Steelers owner Art Rooney II doesn't envision Antonio Brown remaining with Pittsburgh

Steelers owner Art Rooney II doesn't envision Antonio Brown remaining with Pittsburgh

But I will say all other options are on the table.

The Steelers failed to make the playoffs this season, finishing with a record of 9-6-1.

"We're not closing the door on anything at this point", Rooney told the Post Gazeete.

Veteran offensive tackle and one of the team's foremost leaders got in on the social media action Thursday in response to a post by Brown that showed him shaking hands with Rooney and the caption "Good Business #Boomin".

Brown has not returned phone calls from the team - including Rooney, head coach Mike Tomlin and others who have reached out.

"Whether the situation can be reconciled and have him back on the team next year, we're a long way away from thinking that can happen".

The only problem is, trading him would be costly - not just in terms of the production the Steelers would be losing.

The Steelers face a $21 million cap hit if they trade Brown this offseason.

"As we sit here today, it's hard to envision that". "If we decide something has to be done, we'll figure out how to deal with that".

According to Post-Gazette writer Gerry Dulac, Rooney did not say the Steelers would trade Brown but "left no doubt that is a strong possibility". During that week Brown even made it seem as though he wished to be traded from the team, despite reports saying he never demanded a move. There's no sense making the decision now. We all know there have been problems with Brown's attitude and his relationship with the team over the last two seasons.

Though Brown, 30, wants out, it's unclear what the price tag would be for the wideout who finished with 104 receptions for 1,297 yards and a career-high 15 touchdowns during the 2018 season.
