The Jets appear interested in Antonio Brown.
New York has “entered the mix” to acquire the 30-year-old wide receiver and has made contact with the Steelers about a potential trade, according to a report from NFL Network. The Raiders and Titans are also considering pursuing a deal for Brown, the report says.

Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowl player, tallied 1,297 receiving yards and 15 scores with the Steelers in 2018.
Brown has spent his entire nine-year career in Pittsburgh. But he has been unhappy with the Steelers and requested they move him last month.
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said in late February the team would only deal Brown for a significant package in return.
“Of course, if you’re going to subtract that player (Brown) from your team, you want compensation that justifies that, and that’s what we’re seeking,” Colbert said, via the Post-Gazette. “We’re open to it, but again if it doesn’t benefit us, we won’t do it; that’s as simple as it gets.”
New York is also interested in free agent wide receiver Donte Moncrief, according to an earlier report from the Daily News.
