NFL Rumors: Steelers Are ‘close to a Deal' to Trade Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown will be traded. It's just a matter of when.

After AB almost-but-didn't go to the Bills, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Friday afternoon that the Steelers are 'close to a deal' to trade their disgruntled wide receiver.

He later indicated that three teams are "still alive" in the running for Brown's services.

Brown has long been rumored to end up in the Bay Area, and the latest chatter has him being heavily tied to the Raiders. Brown went on Instagram live earlier Friday and one of his friends appeared to indicate Brown would end up in Oakland by noting his black and gray garb.

Meanwhile, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported that Brown himself believes he'll end up with the Raiders.


Raiders coach Jon Gruden has praised AB before, and so has QB Derek Carr. The Raiders have the cap room and have wanted to make bold splash, so Brown would certainly fit their plans.
