Would you trade a high 2020 draft choice for AB?

No. Seen this story too many times. Guy plays amazing, then a flag pops up, then a second. Next thing you know dude is full on Marvin Harrison.

Marvin Harrison would have been seen as a process guy oddly enough.

 

I'd give up a 3rd for AB, but they'll likely get more from an immediate contender.

No way. 

And the thing about is- the Steelers hold no advantage.  Neither do bell or ab.  They will be traded on sale, nickels on the dollar

No.  His value is not that high.  Out right 2019 2nd or swap of firsts and that will do it.

I laugh at how so many of you think draft picks are some sacred prizes. The higher you draft, the better the chance the players pans out, the better the ODDS, no guarantees at all.  AB is a PROVEN top receiver, one of THE best. Voted #2 overall best player in 2017 by his peers behind Brady. Of course, all his other issues sure factor in the decision process. Also matter the remaining years in the contract, pay vs cap space and blablabla. But overall a 1st round draft pick is an educated gamble that you can get someone very good or great. And often that player is average or a bust. So trading a pick for a proven player? A no-brainer unless the other factors mentioned don't make sense.

Like the hall of fame wr Marvin Harrison?  One of the hands down greatest that ever played Marvin Harrison?  I like it, unfortunately Antonio suffers from a case of OLD so I would pass on that.

If it is a Cleveland-Houston type deal where Pittsburgh gives us their 2nd rounder to take this head case, I would do it.

second thought...No way!

If AB was a free agent and I could sign him for his current contract I wouldn't.  There's no way I'm giving up a high draft pick too.

I get where your coming from but, for me the pro's out weigh the con's because for #1 AB has proven he can handle the heavy load. I also think the similarities between Josh Allen and big Ben would allow AB to continue right where he left off as one of the best go to guys in the league.

 

Myself personally, sometimes a change of scenery works wonders for a fella's attitude even If he needs it adjusted a little by leaders in the Bills locker room.

 

Great players at the WR position want the football and AB has earned that right in my humble opinion.

I'd give a 2nd for him.   The guy is freakin great.

To make these kinds of deals is why the Raiders formerly of Oakland exist.

No to Bell and no to Brown. Spend LOTS of money on o-line and draft BPA on draft day.

I honestly don't understand the anatomy of the problem in Pittsburgh well enough.

 

It's not clear who's the jerk or whether they're all problem children. I'd need to do a lot more research, but since I'm not actually involved in a decision I'll spend my time elsewise instead.

 

Yeah, the Steelers organization hasn't had much drama in their history.  Other than the Big Ben rape case, I think you'd gave to go all the way back to Joe Gilliam in the 70's.

100% yes. The guy is amazing. Allen would have a 1,500 yard reciver, and the offence can get scary good real quick. He will come to play

He has been great the last few years, issue is he’s not the guy you want for an unproven young quarterback. Of course he can help Allen grow, but some of you seem to be missing how much he’ll set Allen back. 

Josh is still learning how to read the whole field, you don’t want a guy who is going to yell at Allen or have temper tantrums if he’s not getting enough targets or Allen doesn’t see him on enough plays. 

AB is all about AB, winning is not as important as getting his numbers. All you guys wanting him to come here have you watched steeler games? That dude has temper tantrums when they are winning because Ben doesn’t see him open or misses a read. Last thing Allen needs is a teammate yelling at him on the sidelines or going to the press crying. McDermott would cut him by week 4 regardless of his numbers

A lot of hate for ab, I don’t recall prior to this year him being a problem at all for Pittsburgh. I would trade a 2nd or 3rd for him, he isn’t that old, and wouldn’t be that expensive. Would instantly fix our wr core. He would probably be on his best behavior to show Pittsburgh up. My only concern would be with poyer, I would check into that first. 

 

We have a huge need at wr and one of the best in the league is available and people don’t want him?

 

i wonder if all these people saying definitely no and stuff would be happy then if the patriots traded for him

Ask yourself this. Are we an Antonio Brown away from making the Super Bowl? Is he that ONE missing piece that will put us over the top? If not, then why are you trading away valuable assets to fill other needs? 

 

Patriots are already contenders to make the SB next year so adding Brown will make them that much more dangerous so that's a stupid comparison.

Isn’t he a valuable asset himself that we would be adding and fill a major need. So because we are not super bowl contenders we shouldn’t try to get good veterans. He isn’t that old, I would hope the bills are trying to build a Super Bowl contender within a couple years while he would still be here

 

Seems like there is a lot of problems in Pittsburgh, maybe it’s not all his fault
