  • Antonio Brown Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers are hoping to land a first-round pick in any trade they make for their disgruntled receiver, which makes the Raiders a flawless trading partner, because they have three first-round picks in this year's draft. This gives the team less up-front payout and Brown more money in the end. I talk to Coach Gruden more.

Last season for the Steelers, Brown had 104 receptions for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns. On Wednesday, he tweeted that three new teams have entered the picture.

Whether or not multiple teams are actually involved depends on if one believes Pittsburgh is attempting to boost its trade return through sourced reports versus the reality that Brown should and could command a robust trade market.

It sounds like the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to get a trade done this week and get wide receiver Antonio Brown moved onto his new home.

Assuming this proves to remain true moving forward, it'll be interesting to monitor which one team it could be, but an immediate guess has to be the Oakland Raiders.

With three first-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft along with the No. 35 pick which falls at the start of the second round, the Raiders have the draft capital to make this happen. In addition, a couple more teams have jumped into the fray in the past 24 to 48 hours, sources said, putting the total number of teams to which the Steelers have spoken in the past few days at six or seven. Brown even specifically said, "I don't take any blame", referring to his pending exit from the Steelers.

With the National Football League scouting combine over and talks surely happening in Indianapolis while everyone was in the same place, it sounds like the Pittsburgh Steelers are ready to make a move.
