The Pittsburgh Steelers are likely headed into the 2019 season without star running back Le'Veon Bell and wide receiver Antonio Brown. There hasn't been much buzz about the San Francisco 49ers trading for Brown since the receiver indicated he might want to play in the Bay Area a few weeks ago. That report mirrored what 9News Denver reported last week, with sources close to Broncos general manager John Elway saying the team had not been involved in Brown trade talks.

The major reason he'll be traded soon is the nagging $2.5 million roster bonus due on March 17.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Steelers are insisting on a first-round pick for Brown.

The Oakland Raiders, Tennessee Titans and Washington have expressed the most interest in Brown. They haven't been verified as the current top teams but earlier in the week those three teams were the top contenders looking to land the wideout.

Brown had made it clear last week that he wanted out of Pittsburgh when he tweeted what amounted to a goodbye to the Steelers.

Antonio Brown's antics in Pittsburgh have mst certainly scared off potential suitors who don't want to deal with the extra stuff that comes with his huge talent, but it hasn't for the Oakland Raiders. After reportedly getting into an altercation with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger during practice, Brown skipped the team's walkthrough before the season finale, was benched for the game and then left the stadium at halftime.

Money hurdles and assets sacrificed in a trade aside, Brown's media tour continues to raise flags about the idea of the Redskins making a move. In 2018, Brown finished second on team (behind Juju Smith-Schuster) in receptions with 104, racked up 1,297 total yards and a league-leading 15 touchdown catches in route to his sixth consecutive Pro Bowl.
