Steelers May Have a Deal in Place for Antonio Brown

The major reason he'll be traded soon is the nagging $2.5 million roster bonus due on March 17.

Brown has six consecutive 100-catch seasons but fell out of favor in Pittsburgh at the end of last season.

The Steelers' asking price started as a first-round pick and other compensation but has been reduced to a first-round pick, sources have told ESPN.

Furthermore, three new teams have "jumped into the fray in the last 48 hours, while the (New York) Jets and (Arizona) Cardinals have dropped out of the bidding, the network reported". Teams who trade for Brown are inviting all the drama and baggage he brings in his helicopter or Rolls Royce.

The Steelers already have made it clear that they would rather not send him to an AFC North team or the Patriots. Preferably, the Steelers hope they can find a trade partner in the NFC, but they won't turn down a lucrative offer if it comes from a team such as the Raiders.

Jennifer Lopez says yes to Alex Rodriguez’s proposal
Jennifer shared the unbelievable news on her Instagram by posting a pic of the enormous engagement ring that Alex gave her. The couple posted an Instagram photo of their hands with a massive engagement ring on Lopez's ring finger.

With the Raiders having four picks inside of the top-35 selections, they make sense as a potential destination for Brown.

CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora talked about the likelihood of a Raiders-Antonio Brown pairing on CBS Sports HQ Tuesday but cautioned that Brown isn't the only big-name pass catcher Oakland is after.

The Philadelphia Eagles need help at the wide receiver position, but they won't be inquiring on one of the most talented skill position players in football.

Additionally, ESPN reports that Pittsburgh views the New England Patriots as a "no-trade zone". Oh, and coach Jon Gruden appears to be really fond of Brown, who remains one of the best players in the league. The Pittsburgh Steelers will surely do everything in their power to commence a deal prior to that specific date.

Over the course of a couple months, Brown has been at odds with the Steelers organization and Ben Roethlisberger.
