Will the Steelers actually trade Antonio Brown?



Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert insists he would gladly welcome back Antonio Brown next season. More importantly for New England, many believe the Patriots would be a likely option. Apparently, that's not the case.

Colbert added the Steelers haven't ruled out any teams as potential trade partners, but would prefer to trade Brown to a team they don't play next season. Colbert, however, said that would not be a driving force for the team to trade the disgruntled receiver prior to that date. But if an [AFC North] team comes through with the best compensation, you have to balance that out.

Colbert said he expected plenty of trade chatter to take place during the week with general managers in town for the combine. Even though Brown wants out, he is still the best wide receiver in the game and deserves a nice trade return.

There is a very, very high chance that Antonio Brown does not suit up for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2019. "He knows that, his representation knows that and we're willing to take a look".

"The last time I spoke I think I said three teams", Colbert said. All the other stuff ... he's a great player, he's a huge contributor to us, and he will be if he continues with us or wherever he goes.

Raising the minimum wage has been hotly debated around the country for years. In the interview, she went on to say America is "doing very well".

"Anything we do has to benefit us".

Colbert also left the door open for Brown's return to Pittsburgh, which was surprising considering Brown and team owner Art Rooney II have already stated publicly in recent weeks that it's best for both parties to move on.

Although the thought of Brown returning to Pittsburgh sounds kind of insane, mainly because it feels like he's burnt a few bridges with the team, Colbert doesn't see things the same way.

The Steelers have been actively trying to trade the league's best receiver over the past. "Coach [Mike] Tomlin treats our players like men".
