Rumor: Peter King says Antonio Brown doesn’t want Steelers to trade him

Antonio Brown Peter King

In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac, Rooney also indicated that "all other options are on the table" when it came to Brown's future, implying that a trade was a strong possibility. 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.

"We'll look at all the options", Rooney said.

As the Post-Gazette reported, the Steelers can't do anything with Brown until the 2019 season officially starts on March 13th.

And that has now made an offseason for the Steelers that already was sure to be littered with questions about how to prop open that closing window of opportunity a little more ... shall we say ... drama-filled.

"That has to be taken into consideration, but, as I sit here today, I'm not going to say that's going to box us into anything", Rooney said. He is owed $22,165,000 against the cap next season and due a $2.5 million bonus on March 17.

Astronomers detect radio signals from deep space
CHIME identified a fast radio burst with the lowest dispersion yet discovered, suggesting its source is the closest to Earth. The telescope has been in use for only a year, detecting 13 of the radio bursts nearly immediately, including the repeater.

Just last February, the Steelers decided Brown was worth a four-year, $68 million extension, the richest in National Football League history for a wide receiver at the time. The team president added he and coach Mike Tomlin have not spoken to Brown. Brown's current deal with the Steelers runs through 2021, with an average annual salary of $17 million.

The 30-year-old Brown has fueled speculation that he wants out of Pittsburgh since the end of the campaign by posting photos of Rice from his 49ers days on social media.

Pittsburgh is reportedly expected to consider trade offers for Brown ahead of the free-agency period.

The Steelers now have two months to figure it all out.

"That's one of the questions we have to answer - whether we can get to a point where we all feel good about him being on the roster next year", Rooney said.
