Joe Staley joins in on recruiting pitch for Antonio Brown

Steelers president Art Rooney II leaves option of trading Antonio Brown open

As the Post-Gazette reported, the Steelers can't do anything with Brown until the 2019 season officially starts on March 13th.

In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Rooney was asked if he could envision Brown being with the team when training camp commences for next season.

Everything wide receiver Antonio Brown has said and done recently indicates he no longer wants to be a part of the Pittsburgh Steelers' organization. During that week Brown even made it seem as though he wished to be traded from the team, despite reports saying he never demanded a move.

The Steelers found themselves in this situation - where their best skill-position player has demanded a trade - after Brown skipped out on practice before the team's do-or-die season finale against the Bengals and didn't play in the game.


Brown's future with the team clearly is up in the air.

"There's not much we can do right now; we have time to make a decision", Rooney said. "We'll look at all the options". "We have two months to go before we can do anything". He also said the team is not closing the door on the possibility of smoothing things over with Brown, but he is not optimistic that will happen. As Dulac pointed out, Brown is slated to receive a $2.5-million bonus from the club on March 17 and logic tells us the Steelers would more than likely target that as their decision date. He hasn't picked up when Rooney and Mike Tomlin have called him.

Like clockwork, 49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley continued the team's efforts to recruit the WR, by tweeting a hand-waving emoji at Brown, in response to the receiver posting a picture of himself shaking hands with Rooney.
