Could Antonio Brown be destined for Philadelphia or Oakland?
The Steelers wide receiver is “most closely linked” to the Eagles and Raiders as the speculation continues, according to CBS sports. The report suggests there could be a contractual hold up with the Raiders, though.
Per CBS Sports: “Several teams who have been in the mix believe a trade with Raiders would already be done if not for contractual hold-ups between the WR and the team.”
This bit of info comes after the Steelers were in talks with the Bills on a potential deal, but it fell through when the disgruntled wideout reportedly made it clear he wouldn’t report to Buffalo if the deal was completed. Pittsburgh had been hopeful of reaching a deal by Friday.
The seven-time Pro Bowl selection requested a trade last month after missing the Steelers’ final week of practice and sitting out the regular-season finale against the Bengals amid an alleged feud with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
The 30-year-old Brown had 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns last season.
