Rooney: 'Hard to envision' Brown at Steelers camp

Rooney: 'Hard to envision' Brown at Steelers camp

Steelers president Art Rooney II told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Thursday that while the team isn't going to release Antonio Brown, it would be "hard to envision" the wide receiver at training camp with the team in July. We're not going to release him, that's not on the table.

"There's not much we can do right now; we have time to make a decision", Rooney said, via Gerry Dulac of the Post-Gazette. He signed a four-year, $68 million extention in February 2017.

The 49ers have been in the market for a true No. 1 wide receiver since John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan took over.

As for Rice, the three-time Super Bowl champion owns the National Football League career receiving records for catches, yards, and touchdowns.

Cohen, ex-Trump lawyer, to testify publicly before Congress
In an interview with ABC News after his conviction Cohen said Mr Trump knew it was wrong to order the hush payments. His testimony will be the first major public hearing for Democrats, who have promised greater scrutiny of Mr Trump.

Perhaps the Colts or Jets, two teams flush with cap room, could place an inquiry.

The 30-year-old Brown has fueled speculation that he wants out of Pittsburgh since the end of the campaign by posting photos of Rice from his 49ers days on social media. Later, it came out that Brown got into a heated dispute with Ben Roethlisberger, has issues with both Roethlisberger and Tomlin, and has requested a trade.

Rooney said in the interview that salary cap implications would not "box us into anything". "We have a way to go before we feel good about that". During that week Brown even made it seem as though he wished to be traded from the team, despite reports saying he never demanded a move.

That's why this story is so tricky - and so fascinating - as the Steelers head into one of the more critical offseasons they've had in a long time.
