According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, the Pittsburgh Steelers will not trade star wide receiver Antonio Brown to the New England Patriots. In addition, they will not deal him inside the AFC North.
That does make sense because they do not want Brown to hurt them within the Division. In addition, when the Steelers have made the playoffs, the Patriots have stood in their way of making the Super Bowl.
The Steelers are going to take a cap hit with the move. But they’re willing to take the gamble to rid themselves of Brown in order to make JuJu Smith-Schuster as the new star receiver.
With these four teams eliminated, that leaves 28 other teams that the Steelers can make a deal with.
The 30-year-old Miami, Florida native made 15 starts this season. He had 104 receptions for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns. The 15 touchdowns were a career-high; surpassing his previous record of 13 touchdowns in 2014.
He has had six straight seasons, where he had more than 1,000 receiving yards. He has seven 1,000-plus receiving yardage seasons in his career.
In his final game of the season, he had his best game in a 31-28 loss to the New Orleans Saints, he had 14 receptions for 185 yards and two touchdowns.
