Potential Jets target Antonio Brown demands trade from Steelers

Antonio-Brown-Steelers

Brown, 30, took to Twitter this afternoon to issue a statement on his status and future with the franchise. Although Brown is the best receiver "available" this offseason, he comes with a lot of baggage and he's going to cost a lot in a trade.

Moving on from Brown will come at a price for the Steelers and some risk for the team that trades for him.

Antonio Brown said his goodbye to Steelers Nation on Tuesday in a very A.B. -like way - on his various social-media accounts with an intricately produced video tribute to himself.

Brown, a four-time All-Pro, is embroiled in a dispute with the Steelers, who openly have discussed the possibility of trading him.

DH could come to the National League, but not in 2019
The three-batter minimum and the 12-pitcher limit on rosters would both reduce the frequency of pitching changes. If approved, pitchers would no longer take at-bats in National League or Interleague games.

Brown is entering the third of year of a five-year $72.7 million contract with the Steelers.

Beyond the reckless driving charge, a lawsuit filed in October alleged that Brown hurled several large pieces of furniture off the 14th-floor balcony of his Florida apartment during an April outburst.

One lawsuit claims that Brown just missed hitting a 22-month-old boy with the furniture. Since then, he has recorded more than 1,000 yards receiving in seven of his nine seasons in the league.

The Vikings have been trying to figure out how to stop Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for years, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford seems to always make things hard for Minnesota in their showdowns, and Chicago Bears linebacker Khalil made life miserable for the Vikings in both of their meetings last season.
