For what it's worth, NFL Network is the only outlet to have reported the deal and it has not been made official by either team.
Gilmore's reaction was similar to many others. The Steelers recently imposed a deadline on themselves to move Brown, intending to reach an agreement by close of business on Friday, March 8. Brown's $22.165 million cap hit is now the largest for any wide receiver in the NFL. Plenty of media members laughed in response to the trade, which sends Brown from one of the consistent winners in the National Football League to one of the consistent losers. Brown, who turns 31 in July, has three years left on his current deal, set to pay him approximately $38 million. Given Brown carries a massive salary cap hit, it limited some of the teams the Steelers would be able to do business with. But Pittsburgh appeared to find a solid replacement for Bell, who sat out the entire 2018 season, in James Conner, and it has an exciting young talent in wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. For now, it looks like the 49ers are not in play for the receiver.
