Could the Raiders trade for Steelers WR Antonio Brown?

Steelers president Art Rooney II leaves option of trading Antonio Brown open

The Steelers likely will make a decision prior to the start of the league's year on March 13, when trades can start to occur.

Brown skipped Steelers exit interviews after the conclusion of the regular season and has not spoken about the situation - but has instead used social media to react, and at times, drive the story in a new direction.

Just a few hours after Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II gave a bleak outlook on Antonio Brown's future with the organization, Brown responded by tweeting a photo of himself and Mr. Rooney with a curious caption.

"There's not much we can do right now; we have time to make a decision", Rooney told the Post-Gazette.

Brown has not returned phone calls from the team - including Rooney, head coach Mike Tomlin and others who have reached out.

San Francisco isn't the only team with draft assets to facilitate a deal and the cap space to fit Brown's $22 million cap hit next season, then his $18 million and $19 million hits the next two years. Even if the Steelers do decide to trade him, he would still count over $21 million against their cap.

The 49ers have been in the market for a true No. 1 wide receiver since John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan took over. While Tomlin was talking with reporters, Brown posted a quote to Twitter. Another mid-round pick and a roster player would likely have to be part of the package as well.

The high odds on Atlanta seem a little bit surprising given that the Falcons have Pro Bowl wide receiver Julio Jones as well as two proven weapons with Mohamed Sanu and Calvin Ridley. "We have a way to go before we feel good about that".
