Steelers president open to trading A.B

Steelers president open to trading A.B

It might not come as a complete surprise, but the Steelers don't expect Antonio Brown on their roster in 2019.

Now, in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers president Art Rooney II is saying that it's "hard to envision" Brown playing with the squad next season. That makes a trade the likeliest exit scenario for the All-Pro receiver, though Rooney was unwilling to commit to any particular plan at this stage.

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

Whether the situation can be reconciled and have him back on the team next year, we're a long way from thinking that can happen.

Brown's absence in Week 17 resulted in a benching for the season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals, and during the week Brown had a flare-up in a team setting.

Johar uploaded a selfie with Modi and the rest of the group on Instagram and described the meeting as "an incredible opportunity". PM Modi happily posed for a selfie with the delegation led by film-maker Karan Johar and the selfie seems to be next level epic.

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

And that has now made an offseason for the Steelers that already was sure to be littered with questions about how to prop open that closing window of opportunity a little more ... shall we say ... drama-filled.

Pittsburgh is reportedly expected to consider trade offers for Brown ahead of the free-agency period. "If we decide something has to be done, we'll figure out how to deal with that".

Rooney said the cap hit would not play into the team's decision. He'll turn 31 in the summer. This won't be resolved anytime soon - March at the earliest. We'll see how things play out.

In 15 games, Brown recorded 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns, setting a new team record for majors.
