Brown calls report of trade to Bills 'fake news'

JuJu Smith Schuster and Antonio Brown

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, the Steelers are finishing up a deal that will send the 30-year-old to the Buffalo Bills. Brown showed up and said the worst possible combination of words to refute the report, indicating that he's not actually going to Buffalo. What did come as a surprise, however, was Brown's response on Instagram shortly after, where he replied to the NFL's story with "Fake news" from his official account.

Since 2013, Brown leads the National Football League in receptions with 686, receiving yards (9,145) and touchdowns (67).

Even if the team does pass on Brown, there's still a number of other free agent wide receivers on the marker, as well as promising prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Blackledge, 70, told lottery officials she had purchased the winning ticket at a Shell gas station in Harrison. The 1984 Phillipsburg High School graduate is many millions of dollars richer than he was just a few days ago.

The Steelers had been looking into trading Brown after he skipped the final regular-season game due to frustrations with the team, most notably, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

After the season concluded, Brown asked for a trade and his wish was facilitated after a meeting with owner Art Rooney last month.
