  • Report: Saints back out of Antonio Brown sweepstakes

After talks with the Buffalo Bills fizzled out seemingly as soon as they had started, the wideout is expected to be closing in on a deal.

Brown is still available (after the false alarm Thursday night of him being shipped to Buffalo) and the Steelers' deadline of Friday should pass quietly.

After social media was set ablaze late Thursday night with word that AB was being dealt to the Buffalo Bills, the Pro Bowl wideout chose to take matters into his own hands.

Oddly enough, the reason we know that is because Brown made a decision to give everyone an update on his situation during a live Instagram video on Friday.

As for Brown, it appears the Steelers are close to officially parting ways with the seven-time Pro Bowler, who requested to be traded after having a falling out with the team late in the season. "Stay by the phone", Brown said.

Brown has sabotaged the Steelers in getting much of any value in a trade for reasons even beyond Brown being unhinged and a raging lunatic.

I guess Antonio Brown was right. "Hey, I'm gonna announce my new team in like a little bit alright".

The worst kept secret around the National Football League is that Brown is drowning in debt and his trade market is so weak right now because General Manager's are well aware if they don't rip up his current deal and give him a new contract loaded with guaranteed money, he's going to be a major problem, potential holdout candidate and a distraction before he even steps on the practice field. The Bills decided the deal was "not worth the drama".

As a result, the Bills have since pulled out of the Antonio Brown sweepstakes.
