Antonio Brown likely on his way out with Steelers: owner

Antonio Brown Peter King

"I've heard that Antonio Brown does not want to be traded and he wants to play in Pittsburgh and he wants to try to win a Super Bowl there", King said, via Dave Bryan of Steelers Depot.

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. "We'll look at all the options".

The report comes from Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, who tweeted out the following on Thursday afternoon.

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

"I'm just gonna say that Antonio is a great, great player - a tremendous competitor, a great teammate", Rosenhaus told 7 Sports Xtra, as transcribed by the Pittsburgh Tribune's Joe Rutter.

Russia-China trade turnover hits record $100 billion
Both parties agreed to continue to maintain close contact, the ministry said in a brief statement on its website. The vice-ministerial level talks are working-level discussions and not meant to yield a final agreement.

Brown is scheduled to count $22,165,000 against the salary cap in 2019 and the team can't do anything with him until March 5th and is due a $2.5 million roster bonus on the fifth day of the league year.

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.

Antonio Brown's time in Pittsburgh may soon be over. Brown enters the third year of a five-year, $72.7-million extension signed before the 2017 season. The team president added he and coach Mike Tomlin have not spoken to Brown.

Earlier this week, the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the team was looking to trade the Miami native.
