Oakland Raiders: Is Antonio Brown worth a first round pick?

Antonio Brown

It sounds like the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to get a trade done this week and get wide receiver Antonio Brown moved onto his new home.

The Pittsburgh Steelers might be nearly done hearing what teams have to offer for Antonio Brown.

Rapaport added that 3 new teams had joined in the running for Brown in the last 48 hours, while suspected potential suitors, the Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets, had officially withdrawn themselves from negotiations. The rumor is that it is a one-team race to get his services, and the Raiders certainly have the draft capital if they want him, but that would essentially mean that they traded Amari Cooper for Brown. With Antonio Brown's $2.5 million roster bonus due on the 17th of March, Pittsburgh essentially has 12 days to figure out where to place their disgruntled wideout.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has indicated that the Steelers will have plenty of offers on the table for Brown before that deadline.

Teams that are still in the hunt for the 30-year-old include the Oakland Raiders, the Washington Redskins, the Tennessee Titans and most recently the Jets.

'Pacific Nations Will Not Be Excluded From World League'
Beaumont added that "no decisions have been made" amid concerns over player welfare and the marginalising of the likes of Georgia and the Pacific Islands.


However, Brown soon replied to that report on Instagram by writing, "fake news" with a flashing alarm emoji. The Jets would have to give up a high draft pick and take on Brown's contract, but given the upgrade he'd give to Darnold, who desperately needs weapons as the Jets franchise quarterback, it is a significant upgrade worth making. But what teams will be interested?

Any trade that is agreed upon can't be officially announced until next Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, when the 2019 league year begins.

Brown has six consecutive 100-catch seasons but fell out of favor in Pittsburgh at the end of last season.

Though he doesn't have final say, it appears Brown would rather be on the 49ers than the Raiders.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said in late February the team would only deal Brown for a significant package in return. In his career, he has 837 receptions for more than 11,000 yards, and 74 touchdowns.
