Could the Raiders trade for Steelers WR Antonio Brown

There were reports from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette of a confrontation with a teammate and Brown skipping out on team meetings and practices leading to the game.

Rooney II also said he wouldn't be releasing the polarizing star, but "all other options are on the table". According to the article, no one from Pittsburgh's front office or coaching staff has even spoken to Brown since December 30, which was the team's final regular season game. The team president added he and coach Mike Tomlin have not spoken to Brown.

"All options are on the table", Rooney said.

In the wake of Brown "Tony Toe Tapping Out" of the Steelers' "darkest hour" - a must-win season finale against the Bengals - the relationship very.

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

"As we sit here today, it's hard to envision that", Rooney told Gerry Dulac. Brown recently unfollowed his current team on social media and started following the 49ers, several of its players, and liked 49ers-related content, especially content which pushed a Brown-to-San-Francisco message. "If we decide something has to be done, we'll figure out how to deal with that". During that week Brown even made it seem as though he wished to be traded from the team, despite reports saying he never demanded a move. We'll see how things play out.

In the meantime, teams in the market for a receiver averaging 1,524.2 yards and 11.2 touchdowns per season since 2013 should begin preparing their bids.
