Antonio Brown Requests Trade From Steelers

Antonio Brown Requests Trade From Steelers

On Tuesday, Brown announced via social media that he is moving on from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The star wide receiver tweeted "Thank you SteelerNation" on Tuesday, adding that it's "time to move on and forward" along with the hashtag #NewDemands.

Yes, Antonio Brown is trying desperately to force his way off the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Brown is entering the third of year of a five-year $72.7 million contract with the Steelers.

Former NFL safety Gerald Alexander commented on how Brown's situation reflects the issue of age within the league, saying that the arrival of 22-year-old receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster in 2017 has made Brown "expendable".

Fitting Brown under the salary cap, if he were to stay on his current deal, would be possible for the Eagles. The player's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said he had expressed his client's "position" to the team but did not elaborate.

Ocasio-Cortez's team has said that they plan to publish an official FAQ for the Green New Deal as the resolution moves forward. Ocasio-Cortez reacted to widespread ridicule by removing the FAQ from her congressional website by Thursday afternoon.

Brown is a seven-time Pro Bowler and has been named to the NFL's All Pro first-team four times.

Now the attention turns to see what the Steelers do next.

He has, however, been involved in problems off the field recently.

It has also emerged Brown was hit with two lawsuits in October for an incident that allegedly occurred at his South Florida high-rise last April.

The court appearance stems from Brown being caught driving over 100 mph on McKnight Road hours before a game against the Carolina Panthers. The woman did not press charges and police have taken no further action.
