Steelers WR Brown requests trade

Antonio Brown

ESPN's Adam Schefter just reported that Brown has requested a trade from the Steelers, who've yet to respond to the report.

The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver has been a thorn in the franchise's side all offseason, asking for a trade after the season concluded and has continuously set social media ablaze with cryptic tweets and Instagram activity.

If Brown does hit the trade market, it will be interesting to see what kind of interest there is.

Brown is still under contract in Pittsburgh, but that marriage sounds like it's over, especially after the All-Pro wide receiver sent out this goodbye to Steelers fans on Twitter, telling fans that it's time to move on.

With the future of Le'Veon Bell also still very much up in the air, the Steelers could be facing the loss of two of their best players in the coming weeks.

Before San Francisco pays that price for the disgruntled All-Pro wideout, though, the team should (and likely will) consider what one longtime National Football League personnel man told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette last week. There is little doubt there will be interest from plenty of teams wanting Brown's services. Lastly, Brown will be 31 next season and might not have many productive seasons left in him, despite the fact he has posted six consecutive 1,200-yard campaigns.

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