  • Steelers offseason The Antonio Brown dilemma will go a long way in shaping the offseason plan

He also said the team is not closing the door on the possibility of smoothing things over with Brown, but he is not optimistic that will happen.

The Steelers likely will make a decision prior to the start of the league's year on March 13, when trades can start to occur.

The post seems to be a sarcastic response to Rooney II's apparent willingness to deal Brown this offseason, who has posted at least 1,250 receiving yards in six straight seasons.

"There's not much we can do right now; we have time to make a decision", Rooney told the outlet.

Antonio Brown's future in Pittsburgh is starting to become even more clear following the comments by the president of the team. The team president added he and coach Mike Tomlin have not spoken to Brown.

Like clockwork, 49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley continued the team's efforts to recruit the WR, by tweeting a hand-waving emoji at Brown, in response to the receiver posting a picture of himself shaking hands with Rooney.

The 30-year-old is signed through 2021 with an average salary of $17 million.

Brown missed the team's 2018 finale against the Cincinnati Bengals.

"That's one of the questions we have to answer - whether we can get to a point where we all feel good about him being on the roster next year", Rooney said.

Pittsburgh is reportedly expected to consider trade offers for Brown ahead of the free-agency period. "We good over here", he replied curtly.

If the Steelers were to trade Brown, the price tag would likely be high, according to NFL Network. The Pro Bowl receiver reportedly asked for but did not demand a trade after the incident, but he carries a $21.25 million cap hit for next season, so he likely would be hard to move despite his vast talent. And MyBookie believes the Lions are firmly in the mix to acquire Brown, who played collegiately at Central Michigan.
