Antonio Brown is officially on the trade block

Recommended Posts

I could see him going to SF. Shame, I was really hoping he’d stay with the Steelers so he could continue to derail their team.

Hell of a football player but I'm glad he won't be with the Steelers anymore. He always torched us.

As an AB owner in fantasy, I hope either of these things happens. As a Colts fan, I hope either of these things happen. I need him to go somewhere with a competent QB and as far away from the Colts as possible.

"Mister Big Chest" as he now demands to be called will never play in Indy mostly because of things like that. 31 years old does not help his cause either.

Man, that's a lot to ask for. For a team to acquire him, they have to give away a draft pick (relatively high), and sign him to a fairly big contract, with out seeing how he performs on their team. 

 

Risky.

I can't get past the fact AB costs the Steelers 21 million if he leaves, and 22 million if he stays.  There seems to be no financial impetus to move him. And Pittsburgh has not granted AB and his agent permission to negotiate with other teams. Only the Steelers are sending out feelers at this time.  If/when they allow Drew Rosenhaus to negotiate a deal, then I believe he will truly be 'gone'.

Yup, and the fact he wants massive guaranteed money in his new contract, too.

I think they're just wanting to rid themselves of prima donna's and distractions and to them, its worth not gaining anything financially to move on from him and bell.

I can see them just letting Bell go at this point, yet I still hear rumblings of them using the 'Transition' tag.  IMO, they should forget the tag tender and just move on and get that 3rd round comp pick for losing him in 2020.

 

Brown is different.  He is under a contract extension recently offered and signed.  They can't let a guy quit on the team at the end of the season, then demand a trade (carrying massive dead cap hit) without any reasonable compensation.

 

I'd be a bonehead GM on this. (So I'm very glad I'm not one!) If a decent deal isn't worked out, I'd keep him and fine him daily when he doesn't show up to camp. If he eventually shows but causes distractions, I'd put him 3rd string (for reps) and make him a healthy scratch each game.  It costs the club about the same amount of money whether he's on or off (cut/traded) the team.  So he can be treated like he was traded/cut and not be on the sidelines game day.  If he suffers any type football injury that is more than a few weeks recovery, then I'd IR him straight away. No return.

 

I just feel the way Bell went about business and Brown's method aren't even comparable.  I have some compassion for Bell's situation, little to none for Mr. Big Chest.  And no AB, clubs with big guarantee $$ can't ring your cell. It's called tampering. And your social media items concern me about your stability... if you know what I mean.

He met with Art Rooney and they both agreed it's time to move on. I think that's concrete enough to think that AB will not play for them.

Yeah, according to him {Has Art Rooney II been interviewed yet? I bet he wants a certain price to pull off a deal}  Presently, Brown and Rosenhaus can't pursue clubs for trades//contracts. Oh, Brown probably won't play regardless...   but that doesn't mean he wont be on the team (sort of, see above).  Steelers control his situation more than the Bell fiasco.  Teams are not in the business of letting good/great talent leave without compensation for no reason. Let's see how it goes down.

Prediction!  They will trade him to the AFC East but not New England.  They will want the Pats to face him twice a year.

The Raiders did want to pay the best LB/pass rusher a lot of money with a fat up front bundle, doubt highly they give up a #1 for this guy. The Packers could use him, but again him wanting a new fat contract with the worst liked agent won't help him either.,

The Steelers will be lucky if they are able to get that 2nd round pick from the Cardinals because it is not just AB they are getting, they are getting the whole package.

 

But then, IF, a big IF, Big Ben steps up to the plate and apologizes for calling AB out in public and being the drama queen and does some reconciliation, there is a chance AB is back with the Steelers because, unlike LeVeon, he won't sit out and keep losing money knowing the PR damage he has done to himself already.

It's going to be MRS. Big Chest after the surgery.  Antoinette Brown will have the biggest chest you've ever seen.

I'm fine with that..... as long as it's AFTER we've already traded Brissett to the Dolphins.

I have a feeling the 49ers or Broncos would end up being a player for Antonio Brown.

It looks like a deal will be done in a few days. Jets and cardinals have backed out. Apparently 3 new teams have jumped in.

I would look at teams with multiple first rd picks available. Normally I would say look out for Oakland but they doesn’t fit their time line nor money issues. Green Bay but again they don’t spend a lot or money. Some reason Minnesota seems to keep coming to my mind. Pair with Cousins...maybe move a lb or someone else from that defense in return. 49ers make most sense I agree..I think NFC is most likely.

Just one?  It seems Steelers are trying to increase interest and drive up the market. Of all teams that have (or had) interest (Cardinals, Jets, Raiders, Titans, Packers, 49ers and Redskins) I keep hearing 3 teams are still in play (Raiders, Redskins, and Titans) and Steelers want best offers submitted quickly as the expect to have a deal in place by Friday. 

 

Why Friday, though? From my understanding, the Steelers have until March 16 to trade Brown and avoid paying him a $2.5 million roster bonus. And the Steelers cannot formally execute a trade of Brown until after 4 p.m. on March 13 anyway.

 

It appears Cardinals and Jets have definitely dropped out, and I can't find much to support any Packers or 49'ers interest at this point.  I guess we'll see Friday?

    • That’s on paper, a very solid group of receivers. What we are certain of right now is that TY, Funchess, Cain and probably Rogers makes the opening day roster. Hopefully Cain has put forth the film study and NFL style conditioning while he has been off for injury and he comes out for training camp to shake off the rust. Those last 3 guys are basically the same receiver imho and maybe there is room for 1 of those and a draft pick if we go wr with one of those 4 initial picks. If we pick a wr after the 3rd round, then they just compete it out with the bottom 3 and we move on with our PS build. Injuries may also dictate who stays and goes but I’d guess 6 wr’s make the squad and I really liked what Johnson flashed us in his short audition. Pascal has done a few nice things while here as well and of course Fountain was a 2018 draft pick with high hopes but did get cut and sent to the PS until late in the season and dropped his only attempt in the endzone while being virtually wide open. Hopefully we get one of all these receivers not named TY to break out this preseason to make cuts easier. 
    • Not much love on the Panthers message boards about Funch. It's kinda like our board when Moncrief left for Jacksonville.    
    • There are some obvious bad calls that I think most football fans can look at and realize that was a bad call.  Some of them in the past have been due to the rules being poorly written.  Honestly the competition committee's poor writing to the rules has caused far more problems in the past than the refs.     However the PI wasn't one of them.  That was a simple bad no call by the officials.     That said I think those are the exception to the rule.  If calls that bad were every day things, we wouldn't be talking about it.  
    • Would love to have Ferrell and Houston at the same time along with everyone else we have.
