Antonio Brown blocks Bills trade as Steelers cornered into lowering price

Antonio Brown blocks Bills trade as Steelers cornered into lowering price

Late Thursday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the Steelers were close to finishing a deal to send Brown to the Buffalo Bills. They kept saying the Steelers intentionally picked the Bills to punish & banish Brown, and to have fun with Allen lofting balls 10 feet out of bounds over his head.

What was the issue?

There are also additional contract concerns with adding Brown, who likely wants to rip up his old deal and create a new one with his new team.

Reportedly, Brown himself played a big role in nixing the proposed deal. Most reports indicate that Brown simply did not want to play in Buffalo.

Two female passers-by and paramedics tried for an hour to keep her alive, but she died at about 10.30pm on Friday. He told Sky News that online retailers have a role to play in stopping people young people buying knives.

He responded to the NFL's post on Instagram and called the report "fake news". With the list of suitors shrinking and their self-imposed deadline rapidly approaching, they're feeling the squeeze as "several teams" wait for them to lower the asking price for Brown, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. Brown's $22.165 million cap hit is now the largest for any wide receiver in the NFL.

Brown is due a $2.5 million roster bonus by the Steelers on March 17. But Pittsburgh appeared to find a solid replacement for Bell, who sat out the entire 2018 season, in James Conner, and it has an exciting young talent in wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Past year with Pittsburgh, Brown caught 104 passes and added 15 touchdowns for 1,297 yards. He said he wanted to go to a contender and the Bills finished 6-10 last season.
