Wow, and what happened to the Bills then?

 

I think they came out and said it was all bull, they weren't looking at AB.

If you got a good night's sleep, the Antonio Brown to Buffalo Bills trade was a dream that never happened.

 

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that after intense talks that went into last night, and almost agreeing on trade compensation, the Bills say they are out on a Brown trade, per a source informed of the situation.

The about-face comes hours after the Steelers appeared close to a deal to ship the disgruntled wide receiver to Buffalo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"We inquired about Antonio Brown on Tuesday, and kept talks open with the Steelers," Bills GM Brandon Beane said in a statement. "We had positive discussions, but ultimately it didn't make sense for either side. As great a player as Antonio Brown is, we have moved on and our focus is on free agency."

Rapoport noted that Brown would not commit to showing up in Buffalo and the Bills decided a trade was not worth the drama of wondering if the receiver would accept the deal.

Questions about Brown's fit in Buffalo were fired off as soon as the first hint of the possibility became known. Would Brown play for a team perceived to be rebuilding? Would he fit with a growing, strong-armed, but still largely inaccurate Josh Allen? Would Mr. Big Chest demand a hearty raise to play in Western New York?

These questions will be left floating into the starry abyss.

The Bills bowing out of the walked away from the A.B. drama, might it finally signal the time for Brown and the Steelers to work toward a reconciliation that would keep the receiver in Pittsburgh another season?

At first one would think "stoopid Raiders", but to upgrade Amari Cooper with Brown for 2 late round picks (and to pick up a 1st from the Cowboys) is a steal. Cooper's good, but he's no Brown. Plus, the $30 million guaranteed he'll get will get recycled back into the Vegas casinos come 2020 so, win/win for everyone.

Had a feeling itd be them. rough trade for the Steelers between the compensation and the cap hit. The only positive was getting him out of the locker room

For a team that prides itself on being a "class act" organization, the Steelers have really turned into a shit hole of personalities and cancers since Tomlin took the helm.

No Brown said he wouldn't show up if the Bills deal went through.

So now has been released and has lost all that guaranteed money. Will land on another roster before Kaepernick.
