Wide receiver Antonio Brown asks Steelers for trade

With no word about the Steelers having cut Brown, the All-Pro wide receiver appears to be trying to force the Steelers to deal him.

It is important to note he's still under contract with the Steelers and they have the leverage. He's one of the most talented wide receivers in the National Football League and on the right team could still be dominant.

Brown's desire to land with the San Francisco 49ers has been well-documented, and there's no doubt Kyle Shanahan would love to pair the electric receiver with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

Getting him from the Steelers, however, could be hard for top personnel executive Howie Roseman.

If there's anything to take away from the Los Angeles Rams over the last two seasons, it would be the team always seems capable of pulling off unexpected moves, which is why the thought of a trade involving Antonio Brown doesn't seem all that insane to consider. The Steelers would have to eat $21 million in dead money to trade Brown, but if they are open to it, that dead money won't impact his new team.

Brown allegedly pushed the mother of his daughter to the ground last month in Hollywood, Florida, according to a police incident report. Although they are now $11 million under the salary cap after quarterback Nick Foles bought his way back into free agency last week and is no longer under contract.

Committing $12.6 million of that to Brown, however, seems unlikely.

Meanwhile, Brown is signed for three more seasons.
