Report: Steelers likely to deal Antonio Brown before roster bonus deadline

Antonio Brown

The Pittsburgh Steelers appear to have all the interest they need to move wide receiver Antonio Brown fairly quickly.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the Oakland Raiders, Denver Broncos, and Arizona Cardinals are among the leading candidates to trade for Brown, who looks increasingly likely to depart Pittsburgh by March 17.

The date is significant as Brown will be due a $2.5 million roster bonus if he is still a member of the Steelers at that point. Pittsburgh would prefer not to pay that bonus to a player who clearly has no plans to stay with the team.

Several other teams have been linked to Brown, and it’s increasingly clear that his controversial public stances aren’t really hurting his market that much. It appears a resolution could come quickly.
