    Media calls for Steelers to part ways with Antonio Brown

    Media calls for Steelers to part ways with Antonio Brown

    By BRYAN DEARDO

    Antonio Brown's recent incident involving a domestic incident at his Florida residence has led to several prominent writers in Pittsburgh calling for the Steelers to part ways with the decade's most productive wide receiver. Many media members in Pittsburgh already wanted the team to move on from Brown after he left the team before the end of the 2018 regular season. This week's news involving Brown put many of them over the top.

    Jim Wexell of 247Sports is calling for the Steelers to move on from both Antonio Brown as well as former All-Pro running back, Le'Veon Bell, who is expected to leave the team in free agency. Wexell's piece included information that Brown still hasn't contacted team president Art Rooney II to try to patch things up a month before the start of free agency.

    Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette was among the sportswriters to state that it's time for the Steelers to move on from Brown, who had several off-field issues this past season that included physically threatening a reporter on social media.

    Mark Madden clearly believes that Brown's actions have railed against what it means to be a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers' organization, an organization that prides itself on doing the right things both on and off the field.

    Colin Dunlap of 93.7 The Fan went down the list of incidents Brown has been involved in over the past year alone. Despite his off-field issues, Brown has never been suspended by the Steelers or the NFL.

    Andrew Fillipponi of 93.7 The Fan believes that, regardless of what they would get for Brown in a trade, it's time to move on from the four time team MVP, seven time Pro Bowler and four time All-Pro.

    Adam Crowley is going as far as to suggest that the Steelers should grant Brown his release, something that team president Art Rooney II said that the team wouldn't do. The Steelers will most likely trade Brown regardless of what they'll get in return if they do decide to move him.

    The national media is getting into it, too, with former Packers' receiver Greg Jennings saying that Brown doesn't prioritize winning a championship above his own personal success.

    Dunlap believes that Brown's concussion that was sustained in Pittsburgh's 2015 wild card loss to the Bengals trigged his off-field incidents in recent years. But Brown had reported incidents prior to that game that included chewing out former defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau in 2012.

    Bouchette also wrote in his initial piece that an NFL executive told him that they would not use one of their high draft picks in a trade for Brown, as the Steelers' hopes of getting a first or second round pick for Brown may be a pipe dream.

    This Sports Illustrated panel believes that, despite the issues, Brown may still end up in Pittsburgh for the 2019 season. But for this to happen, Brown needs to reach out to the team before the Steelers' brass would start entertaining trade options at the NFL Combine.

    I’m excited for the new Alliance of American Football league to start Sunday. Here in Arizona we’ve got a team called the Hotshots. Kind of in honor of the Granit Mountain Hotshots where 19 of them died in the Yarnell, AZ fire back in 2019...

    I’m so sick of the drama and the fact the nfl seems rigged.....

    atleast the fvcking *’s can’t win in the AAF...

    If we're going to get next to nothing in a trade, I hope we send him to a place with a bottom-tier QB. For goodness sake, don't trade him to a place he wants to go. Don't demonstrate to players that you can get anything you want by being a selfish idiot.

    Yep. We should do what's best for the Steelers and not what's worst for Brown.

    Yeah, that's all that really matters. Just get the best possible deal for us. And let the chips fall where they may for Brown.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    There comes a point of diminishing returns so if your getting nothing offered or to low an offer just keep him. Keep him for the time being.
