Art Rooney open to trade for Antonio Brown

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

While it's not a guarantee Antonio Brown's time with the Pittsburgh Steelers is over, it looks like it's heading in that direction. "We're not closing the door on anything at this point".

"I've heard that Antonio Brown does not want to be traded and he wants to play in Pittsburgh and he wants to try to win a Super Bowl there", King said.

The Steelers would absorb $21.12 million in 2019 dead money on the salary cap by trading Brown, but taking his $22.165-million cap charge off the books would offset that cost.

Rumors are swirling now though as Pacquiao and Mayweather met up with each other at a recent Los Angeles Clippers game. But you gotta think if the money is right these two might one day meet again, in a boxing ring, though.

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

The Steelers failed to make the playoffs this season, finishing with a record of 9-6-1. Brown has reportedly refused calls from Rooney and head coach Mike Tomlin.

Rooney also noted it would be hard to envision Brown being with the Steelers when training camp opens next summer. "If we decide something has to be done, we'll figure out how to deal with that". Brown recently unfollowed his current team on social media and started following the 49ers, several of its players, and liked 49ers-related content, especially content which pushed a Brown-to-San-Francisco message.

Earlier this week, the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the team was looking to trade the Miami native. The asking price for Brown will likely be high. We all know there have been problems with Brown's attitude and his relationship with the team over the last two seasons. We'll see how things play out.
