Antonio Brown's cryptic response to owner's trade hint

Steelers president Art Rooney II leaves option of trading Antonio Brown open

Whether the situation can be reconciled and have him back on the team next year, we're a long way from thinking that can happen. Brown has reportedly refused calls from Rooney and head coach Mike Tomlin.

Shortly after Rooney's comments went viral on Twitter, Brown posted a photo of himself with the Steelers owner along with the caption "Good Business". Brown enters the third year of a five-year, $72.7-million extension signed before the 2017 season. However, the team would save $15.1 million (his 2019 salary roster bonus).

Still, another team must meet the Steelers' asking price for any theoretical trade, and it's no guarantee one will step up at the right return.

Pittsburgh would be giving up a great receiver if they let Brown leave, but at this point they seem to think he's not worth the hassle.

While there are countless teams that should be interested in a player of Brown's caliber, trading him won't be simple. The Raiders also are stocked with draft-pick currency (three first-rounders) and need WR help. The Steelers have until March 13, the start of the new league year, to decide what needs to be done with Brown. He then showed up to play against the Cincinnati Bengals, but the team held Brown out.

Brown has not formally requested a trade.

The Steelers now have two months to figure it all out.

Rooney indicated Brown's salary cap ramifications would not prevent the team from dealing Brown if that's what is best for the franchise.

"The bottom line is we were playing a significant game and he didn't do a good enough job of communicating of being available in the hours leading up to that performance", Tomlin said at the time. 49ers tight end George Kittle was quick to reach out to Brown, tweeting "Sup?" at the seven-time Pro Bowler.
