Antonio Brown-to-Bills trade is officially dead, Buffalo GM says

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown plays in an NFL football game against the New England Patriots Sunday Dec. 16 2018 in Pittsburgh

He's only made it tougher for the team to move him since. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports used the words "nowhere close" to describe the negotiations. The wide receiver appeared to throw cold water on the report when he replied "fake news" to a post about the potential deal posted on the NFL's official Instagram account.

For a few hours late Thursday heading into Friday, it looked like star wide receiver Antonio Brown was about to be traded into the New England Patriots' division.

Antonio Brown remains with the Pittsburgh Steelers - for now.

So no, it doesn't sound like the Cincinnati Bengals will have to put up with Brown on the Steelers for much longer.

Brown, 30, is reportedly interested in doing a contract extension once he's traded, though we'll see if that happens in Buffalo. Most reports indicate that Brown simply did not want to play in Buffalo. As ESPN's Field Yates points out, Brown's friend appears to hint that the Oakland Raiders are that franchise. Teams can officially make trades on March 13, when free agency also opens, and the Steelers need Brown off their roster by March 17 if they want to avoid paying him a $2.5 million bonus.

It should only get harder for the Steelers to find a taker for Brown now that the All-Pro receiver has flexed his muscles.

The Bills could have offered Brown more than Odell Beckham Jr.is getting in NY, as the NFL's most richly compensated receiver, and maybe that would've convinced Brown to play there. He is owed a $2.5 million bonus on March 17, the fifth day of the new National Football League year.
