Antonio Brown reportedly asks Pittsburgh Steelers for trade

The Steelers should not struggle to move Brown and get a good return, as teams see him as key piece to take a proverbial next step.

Brown has been linked to a couple of different National Football League teams in recent weeks, but the San Francisco 49ers are the franchise getting the most hype.

Antonio Brown appears to have confirmed he wants to move on from the Pittsburgh Steelers this off-season.

Hilton and Brown would instantly become one of the top wide receiver duos in the NFL.

ESPN later reported Brown officially asked to be dealt.

If this is indeed the end for Brown as a member of the Steelers, he will go down as one of the organization's best receivers of all time. Last month, two lawsuits were filed against Brown after he allegedly threw furniture from his 14th-floor apartment. The woman did not press charges and Brown was not arrested. Head coach Jon Gruden loves him some players who are up there in age, and in Brown, he would be getting a wide receiver that is still playing at a Pro Bowl level.

Brown has three years remaining on a five-year, $72.7 million contract extension that he signed before the 2017 campaign.

In nine seasons with the Steelers, Brown has 837 catches for 11,207 yards and 74 touchdowns.

Brown is a seven-time Pro Bowler and has been named to the NFL's All Pro first-team four times.

Some might have imagined the Patriots would steer clear of Brown trade anyway, especially considering the likely high asking price and the 30-year-old's propensity for causing headaches.
