Antonio Brown Bids Farewell To Steelers With Cryptic Twitter Video

Antonio Brown Bids Farewell To Steelers With Cryptic Twitter Video

At the end of the season, Brown had a dispute with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger which led to the star wide receiver missing the final game of the season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Brown has in fact requested a trade from the Steelers.

The NFL's reigning Drama King is at it again: on Tuesday, Antonio Brown posted a one-minute video on his verified Instagram and Twitter accounts saying goodbye to Pittsburgh Steelers fans.

According to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, Brown still wants to be traded and the Steelers are hoping to formally begin trade talks at the NFL Combine, which kicks off on February 26. But Brown wants a trade and he officially has requested that from the Steelers, per source. Pittsburgh won the game with Brown watching on the sidelines, but missed the playoffs.

The video is highlights of Brown in his Steelers uniform, making plays. Rooney also said the team has "left everything open" when it comes to Brown's future with the franchise.

With no word about the Steelers having cut Brown, the All-Pro wide receiver appears to be trying to force the Steelers to deal him.

Brown, arguably the best receiver in the league, is signed through the next three seasons and is set to make $12.65 million in 2019, $11.3 million in 2020, and $12.5 million in 2021.

He finished the season with 104 receptions for 1,294 yards and 15 touchdowns.
