Signs of Brown wanting out have been made very clear throughout the past few months, with Brown sharing posts of him photo-shopped into other team’s jerseys, Jerry Rice speaking on his behalf of him wanting out of Pittsburgh, and Terrell Owens doing the same among a myriad of ambiguous posts through Twitter and Instagram.

 

It was unknown how the Steelers front office felt about Brown’s antics, until team president Art Rooney II made public comments about his superstar receiver. A trade appeared imminent, as the ongoing drama between Brown and the Steelers has reached levels that now may be far too deep to revive.

The Steelers cannot actively move Brown until March 13th, the start of the NFL’s new season. The Steelers will have nearly $22 million in dead cap space with Brown’s contract.
