Steelers Antonio Brown, Art Rooney II Meet, Agree ‘It Is Time to Move On’ Published 6 months ago on February 19, 2019 By Donnie Druin 1shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment EmailAfter an off-season filled with social media-filled rants about discovering life outside of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown finally was able to sit down face to face with team president Art Rooney II. The meeting went as many expected, and possibly as well as it could have for either side. Had a great meeting with Mr.Rooney today we discussed a lot of things and we cleared the air on several issues! We both agreed that it is time to move on but I’ll always have appreciation and gratitude towards the Rooney family and @steelers organization! #CallGod #Boomin pic.twitter.com/DEgURchvhW — Antonio Brown (@AB84) February 19, 2019 Mention Steelers Now and save $10! Per ESPN, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert and Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus were also in attendance for the meeting as well. After maintaining a desire to be traded, Brown was finally able to sit face to face with Rooney, who requested a meeting with Brown over a month ago. With petty remarks sent through self-induced interviews, the meeting went as well as it possibly could have from a public perspective. The Steelers now find themselves in a situation where there is no turning back, after publicly accepting the need to move on from Brown after a nine-year stint in Pittsburgh. It might be hard to get a deal done with Brown making demands of more guaranteed money and his social media antics, as one team executive told Peter King of NBC Sports they are “reluctant” to trade for Brown. In terms of guaranteed money, the Steelers may be able to restructure Brown’s deal before shipping him out. The potential landing destinations, new contract and value of return all remain to be seen, yet one variable is now nearly set in stone: we have seen the last of Antonio Brown in a Steelers uniform. 1shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment Email Related Topics:Antonio BrownArt Rooney IIfeaturedPittsburgh SteelersTrade Up Next Finding The Perfect Trade Destination for Antonio Brown Don't Miss Art Rooney II, Antonio Brown to Meet Next Week Donnie Druin Continue Reading Advertisement You may like James Washington Continues Strong Preseason Performance Injury Updates: Benny Snell, Anthony Chickillo Evaluated; Devin Bush Absence ‘Precaution’ From the Locker Room: Rudolph Critical of his Play, Hilton Compliments Burns Steelers Overcome Sloppy, Delayed Start to Top Chiefs, 17-7 FINAL: Steelers 17, Kansas City Chiefs 7 Players, Coaches from around NFL Attend Darryl Drake’s Funeral Click to comment Leave a Reply This comment form is under antispam protection This comment form is under antispam protection Subscribe Notify of new follow-up comments new replies to my comments Steelers Now in Your Mailbox!
