Four-time All Pro Antonio Brown intends to 'move on' from Steelers

Since Brown is now under contract in Pittsburgh, the only chance of him leaving would be if the team chose to move on through a trade or release, which is why it seems likely the Steelers will look at potential teams expressing interest in the receiver.

What is Antonio Brown doing?

Brown hinted at the news on Twitter Tuesday, writing, "Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years.time to move on and forward".

With no word about the Steelers having cut Brown, the All-Pro wide receiver appears to be trying to force the Steelers to deal him.

Brown's tweet and request came on the same day he was found guilty of reckless driving after failing to show up for his trial. ESPN reported shortly afterwards that he has officially asked the team for a trade. Pittsburgh won the game with Brown watching on the sidelines, but missed the playoffs.

Brown is under contract for another three years and the Steelers reportedly would want at least a first-round pick and several other selections for the receiver.

Just one more thing to pile on an already hectic situation involving the disgruntled Steelers wide receiver. Brown would help the offense, but unless he is willing to sign a new contract with a lower cap hit, his play alone won't make up for all the holes the team won't be able to fill if they commit so much money to the receiver.

In nine seasons with the Steelers, Brown has 837 catches for 11,207 yards and 74 touchdowns.

As outlined above, acquiring Brown comes with definite risk but could be a home run for a contender.
