Antonio Brown has asked the Steelers to trade him, report says

Antonio Brown wants out of Pittsburgh.

According to CBS Sports, Brown has asked the Steelers to trade him.

The report states that Brown has issues with both head coach Mike Tomlin and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

It says Brown believes the two are two closely aligned.

There are conflicting reports on this. According to NFL Network, Brown yelled “I’m done” when walking off the field after Sunday’s game and wondered allowed why the team didn’t trade him. The report says Brown has not formally requested a trade.

Brown was reportedly benched for Sunday’s game against the Bengals because of an outburst during practice during the week.

He also reportedly missed a couple of team meetings and showed up to Sunday’s game expecting to play.

He was officially listed as a DNP due to a coach’s decision and a knee injury.

According to CBS Sports, the Steelers are “unlikely” to agree to deal Brown.

If the Steelers were to trade Brown the team would take a cap hit of $21 million. However, according to Pro Football Talk, if Pittsburgh trades him after June 1, it would reduce the cap charge to $7.04 million, with $14.08 million hitting the cap in 2019.

Brown caught more than 100 passes for the sixth consecutive year this season. Brown signed a four-year, $68 million extention in February 2017.
