Steelers, Bills Discussed Antonio Brown Trade

UPDATE: Buffalo Bills GM Brandon Beane says the team is no longer in talks to acquire Brown from the Steelers. 

The Buffalo Bills are in the market for offense this offseason, and they may have just found a key piece.

According to Ian Rapoport, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills are discussing a deal that would ship star wide receiver Antonio Brown to the Nickel City.

Brown has 837 receptions for 11,207 career yards. He has spent his entire career thus far with Pittsburgh. Disagreements began happening, and after meeting with ownership, both sides agreed to move on.

He does not necessarily want to come to Buffalo, as on the NFL’s Instagram post sharing the news, Brown’s account @AB commented “Fake News” with an alert emoji.

The deal has not been finalized, and at the time of this article, no returns have been specified. Many Bills fans on Twitter speculate a second round pick could be part of the deal headed to the Steelers. Fans are also ecstatic because it was 10 years ago to the day (March 7, 2009) that the team signed Terrell Owens.

According to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network, the Steelers said they would listen to offers until the morning of Friday, March 8th and are being true to their word.

Even without the deal finalized, Bleacher Report Betting on Twitter says the Bills odds to win the Super Bowl in 2019 jumped from 100-1 to 60-1.
