Antonio Brown Trade Not Off The Table Says Steelers President

Could the Raiders trade for Steelers WR Antonio Brown

"All options are on the table", Rooney said.

Not helping matters: Nobody from the Steelers has officially spoken with Brown since December 30, the day the Steelers' season ended without a playoff berth.

"There's not much we can do right now; we have time to make a decision", Rooney said.

Veteran offensive tackle and one of the team's foremost leaders got in on the social media action Thursday in response to a post by Brown that showed him shaking hands with Rooney and the caption "Good Business #Boomin". We're not going to release him, that's not on the table. How they deal with this situation is likely to result in either the pain of losing a great player, and the financial cost that comes along with it, or in the potential awkwardness of bringing back a player who undermined the team when it needed him most.

With the team scraping every penny together to find cap room to finally address some obvious deficiencies on defense since the loss of Ryan Shazier 13 months ago, throwing $21 million down the drain by moving on from Brown might not be an immediate option the Steelers are interested in navigating.

Kelly faces new criminal investigation following dream hampton's Lifetime doc
Families who have tried to rescue their daughters whom they say Kelly has taken captive also appeared in the series. Savage and his wife have said repeatedly that Kelly has kept their daughter from contacting them since 2016.

Rooney also noted it would be hard to envision Brown being with the Steelers when training camp opens next summer.

Pittsburgh is reportedly expected to consider trade offers for Brown ahead of the free-agency period.

Last year, all eyes were on running back Le'Veon Bell. We'll see how things play out.

Though Brown, 30, wants out, it's unclear what the price tag would be for the wideout who finished with 104 receptions for 1,297 yards and a career-high 15 touchdowns during the 2018 season.
