Antonio Brown officially requests trade

Recommended Posts

Suppose he was just waiting for his legal issues to resolve before stating the obvious. Must be no probation involved so he can move freely lol

Pass. 

Not to mention on the wrong side of 30 and big contract owed. Although, Steelers would eat most of that in dead cap.....

Did you mean a short swing ‘pass’ to Brown out of the backfield?  😁

Would be nice to have him but I don’t see it happening.

Fooling yourself.  He’s still a top 3 WR for a few more years

It’s amazing how a 6th round draft pick could become so hateable.  He is a joke of a person.  It’s all about him.  Films locker room celebrations; laughs about having multiple baby moms; multiple arrests; possible domestic violence issues; quits on his team.  I don’t want anything really bad to happen to him but I hope karma pays him a visit.  

 

The sad part is a team will talk themselves into him not being a terrible person.  Hey Antonio, after 5 years of owning you in fantasy, I’m trading you!!! Take that buddy!!!

Oh, I agree with that. Just hope his cancer don't wind up here!

If he wasn’t a terrible teammate and person, you think he would be happy in Buffalo?  It’s like the worst version of Pittsburgh as a football fit.

I’m not advocating for Buffalo to sign him.  Just saying he’s still one of best WRs in the league regardless of how he acts.

I mean I generally agree.  It is worth noting how receivers noting how receiver fall off after leaving Pittsburgh (Santanio, Mike Wallace, Burress).  Big Ben isn’t the best qb but he blows up wrs.

He would be a great addition from a production standpoint, but there's no way in hell McD is going to bring a diva to the locker room that's not going to fit in with the culture he's trying to create.

Agreed Bmarv.  I thought for a time, it would be a great addition, but the more info I have on this guy and his personality, there is zero chance, Beane and McD pick him up.

It would not surprise me at all to see the NY Jets go hard after him.

 

They love making splashy moves. Seems like they go after every big name that becomes available.... and I doubt Maccagnan will have any issue with AB’s character. He doesn’t seem to be one that’s overly concerned with “character”.

Gase may have concerns, but I’m not sure if he would feel comfortable making a strong stand against a player like AB yet.

 

 

I will be surprised if the Jets are not at least in the mix.

I think he's burning a lot of bridges and overall being a stupid adult human...

 

That being said, it would be crazy to think he wouldn't improve this team by at least 20%/

The Colts should do it, Luck has the respect of his team and Brown is a hard worker. Lots of him acting out in Pitt stemmed from Lazy Ben and that joke of a coach. 

 

I have no illusions that AB is a team first guy but there is a good chance he would buy in and stick it to the rest of the league.

Great Wideouts are created by playing with great quarterbacks.  No doubt this guy is a unique talent, however his career would be a lot more like that of Lee Evans had he not played with Big Ben.

 

Would have been better served to realize what a blessed life he was leading rather than thinking he was the entire show.   Predicting he goes out with a puff of dust rather than the fireworks his ego expects. 

 

As much as he thinks he gets to choose where he goes next, I am hoping upon hope the Steelers trade him to Arizona.

He epitomizes the ‘Diva WR’, which doesn’t come close to a match with the Bills - to say nothing of the standard the Patriots have set. Where’s Dez Bryant playing again?

If the Bills are going to go the "31 year old WR" route..................

 

I'd rather they kick the tires on AJ Green than go after Brown, to be honest.

No way.  AB runs laps around Green.  Over the past 6 seasons, Green's second best year was 1297 yards, which was equal to AB's second worst season.

 

Pull the trigger Kim!!

Buy low.  There is enough here to make his market soft.  Land Brown with 2 or 3 and that's a win.  Pittsburgh is up against it and do not have any real leverage.
