Wide receiver Antonio Brown asks Steelers for trade

Brown has been with Pittsburgh his entire career but his relationship with the team has soured over the past year.

Over the last couple of months, there's been some drama between Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but things were taken to a whole new level on Tuesday when the speedy wideout posted an interesting message to Steelers fans on Twitter, making it seem like he's done with the team. "Time to move on and forward".

Brown's future has been the subject of speculation since before the end of the regular season.

The court appearance stems from Brown being caught driving over 100 mph on McKnight Road hours before a game against the Carolina Panthers. He paid a $426.77 fine.

Ben Stokes reflects on 'bizarre' reprieve v West Indies
The on-field umpire adjudged Burns not out, but a West Indies review showed the ball would have hit the middle stump and the decision was overturned.

The NFL wide receiver was cited after being pulled over for driving in excess of 100 miles per hour in a 45 miles per hour zone on McKnight Road in Ross Township back on November 8, 2018. Brown did not attend Tuesday's hearing. The lawsuit claims that one piece of furniture almost hit a 22-month-old child and his grandfather. Brown would help the offense, but unless he is willing to sign a new contract with a lower cap hit, his play alone won't make up for all the holes the team won't be able to fill if they commit so much money to the receiver.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Brown can not be traded until March 13, the start of the NFL's league year.

Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro selection, has reportedly been unhappy in Pittsburgh and is looking to be traded.
