Brown trade expected by Friday; Jets, Cardinals out of mix

Brown trade expected by Friday; Jets, Cardinals out of mix

According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it may not be long before the Pittsburgh Steelers move their pro bowl wide receiver to the highest bidder.

As Rapoport mentioned, the Raiders have three first-round picks in this year's draft.

The Jets are reportedly out of the Antonio Brown sweepstakes.

While usual suspects including the Raiders have been on the list, three more teams have allegedly entered the fray lately. NY has been viewed as a potential landing spot for Brown ever since he met with Steelers brass in February and requested a trade, but this is the first time the Jets have been directly linked to trade talks with Pittsburgh. The Broncos are in the Raiders division and the Cardinals are one of the few teams that hold a pick between the Raiders last pick in the first round (27) and their only pick in the second round (35). But no matter the quarterback, if Brown is on the outside, the team is going to be a lot better.

The Steelers already have made it clear that they would rather not send him to an AFC North team or the Patriots. Furthermore, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that teams have been told a deal is expected to be in place by Friday, March 8.

Brown, 30, attached a video of highlights from his time with the Steelers with Lil Uzi Vert's "Now I Do What I Want" playing.

Gruden and the Raiders were unwilling to give Mack a new contract, but they would be willing to give Antonio Brown, who showed up to a game with playoff implications in a fur coat, didn't play, and left at halftime?

It was also reported last week that the 49ers have not engaged in discussions with the Steelers, even though San Francisco was rumored to be one of Brown's preferred destinations.
