Antonio Brown demands Steelers trade privately and publicly

If there's anything to take away from the Los Angeles Rams over the last two seasons, it would be the team always seems capable of pulling off unexpected moves, which is why the thought of a trade involving Antonio Brown doesn't seem all that insane to consider.

Brown tweeted a farewell to the Steelers and their fans, saying it is "time to move on and forward".

That receiver is Antonio Brown and although he's under contract with the Steelers, Brown's status in Pittsburgh has become one of the biggest mysteries heading into the start of free agency.

Brown, 30, has been the subject of widespread trade speculation after he failed to show up to work the day before the season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The court appearance stems from Brown being caught driving over 100 mph on McKnight Road hours before a game against the Carolina Panthers. Brown was charged in November for driving his black sports auto over 100 miles per hour in a 45 miles per hour zone. Brown has recorded at least 1,200 receiving yards and nine touchdowns in each of those campaigns, with a 1,698-yard, 13-touchdown season in 2014 marking career-highs in both categories. Last month, two lawsuits were filed against Brown after he allegedly threw furniture from his 14th-floor apartment. After everything Carson Wentz just went through regarding reports of him being selfish, it would be interesting to see if the Eagles would be prepared to deal with the off and on-field drama Brown could bring when unhappy. If he is traded after that date, his cap hit will increase from $21.12 million to $23.62 million.
