The Buffalo Bills were reportedly close to striking a deal, but as of right now the All-Pro wideout remains in Pittsburgh. However, Albert Breer from Sports Illustrated's Monday Morning Quarterback reports that there are "very few options left" for both the Steelers and Brown for a trade partner.

While Brown does not have a no-trade clause in his deal, National Football League players have shown that they are willing to hold out in order to get what they want.

Maybe the Buffalo Bills had a deal in place late Thursday night.

Brown spoke with Pittsburgh owner Art Rooney II earlier this off-season and decided it would be best for the two to part ways.




One of these is Marquise "Hollywood" Brown, who is actually cousins with Antonio Brown and impressed across the board at the combine. Meanwhile, the Redskins were rumored to no longer be involved in trade talks for Brown as of Thursday, but Rapoport's tweet seems to contradict that.

"We inquired about Antonio Brown on Tuesday, and kept talks open with the Steelers", Beane said.

In the middle of the night, Antonio Brown was almost traded to the Bills until he wasn't. Brown's $22.165 million cap hit is now the largest for any wide receiver in the NFL. But Pittsburgh appeared to find a solid replacement for Bell, who sat out the entire 2018 season, in James Conner, and it has an exciting young talent in wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. "As great a player as Antonio Brown is, we have moved on and our focus is on free agency".
