Report: Steelers can likely expect second-round pick for Antonio Brown
If the Pittsburgh Steelers trade Antonio Brown, the expectation is they can get a nice haul — but not a first-round pick.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, rival executives believe the Steelers could likely get at least a second-round pick if they opt to trade Brown, and potentially a second- and third-round pick.

Rapoport believes the New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers, and Indianapolis Colts could pursue the star wide receiver. He also hears that the Denver Broncos could get involved in the process.
The Steelers are acting like they’re going to get rid of the wide receiver, and there will certainly be widespread interest. Despite the trouble he causes, he’s one of the best in the sport.
