Antonio Brown Requests Trade From Steelers

Antonio Brown Requests Trade From Steelers

That means the Eagles, or any team that makes a move for Brown, would be landing him for a very reasonable $12.6 million next season with zero guaranteed for the rest of the deal.

Antonio Brown, arguably the most dominant wide receiver in the National Football League over the past decade, has stated his desire to leave the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Brown is still under contract in Pittsburgh, but that marriage sounds like it's over, especially after the All-Pro wide receiver sent out this goodbye to Steelers fans on Twitter, telling fans that it's time to move on.

It doesn't tell us a whole lot to be honest, other than the fact Samsung will have some foldable phone news to share with us. Samsung has dropped a teaser video on Twitter with the caption "The future of mobile will unfold on February 20, 2019".

Brown has reportedly asked to be released from the team despite being on a four-year, $68 million contract. The player's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said he had expressed his client's "position" to the team but did not elaborate.

Brown and the Steelers have had a growing rift which came to a head at the end of the 2018 season when he clashed with teammates, was benched the final game of the season and battled some off-the-field issues as well. He was not seen as a star coming out of college and seemed nearly an after-thought when he was drafted in the sixth-round by the Steelers in the 2010 draft.

He finished the season with 104 receptions for 1,294 yards and 15 touchdowns. He has since filed for custody of his daughter in the wake of the alleged incident. On Tuesday, he was found guilty of reckless driving after failing to show up in court, ESPN reported. The woman did not press charges and Brown was not arrested.
