Steelers president Art Rooney II said they won’t release WR Antonio Brown, but “all other options are on the table,” per Gerry Dulac.
Rooney would not say if the Steelers are going to trade Brown, but left no doubt that is a strong possibility.
According to Dulac, Rooney went as far to say that it would be “hard to envision” Brown being with the Steelers when they report to training camp in July.
Chris Mortensen recently reported the expectation now is that Brown is “more likely to be traded” at the start of the 2019 league year in March.
Mortensen mentioned that the cap hit wouldn’t be a big issue for the Steelers, given that they’ll receive a $14 million cap credit from Le’Veon Bell after he sat out the 2019 season.
