According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Oakland Raiders, Washington Redskins, and Tennessee Titans are the three teams who have shown the highest degree of interest in trading for wantaway wide receiver Antonio Brown – meaning the Pittsburgh Steelers are in a good position to yield a positive return.

As Schefter remarked, should the Redskins and Raiders end up the two frontrunners for AB’s services, it would mark the rare occasion where siblings quibbled over an NFL transaction. The ‘Skins are coached by Jay Gruden, the Oakland Raiders by his brother Jon.

According to sources close to the situation, the Pittsburgh Steelers want to begin negotiations at the starting price of a first-round draft pick, which is incidentally nothing but a conversation starter, because no one team can set a market trend all on their own – especially in a cap system.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert says he hasn’t ruled out any potential trade partners for Antonio Brown’s services, even amongst teams in their own AFC North division. “Ideally, you want to trade him to somebody that you’ll never play,” Colbert said at an NFL Combine gathering this week. “But you can’t do that. If you’re good enough to get to the Super Bowl, you have to play him anyway.”

By all accounts, NFL teams don’ seem to be bothered one bit by Antonio Brown’s boisterous personality, or by the role he might have played in the Steelers’ lost 2018 Season. AB turns 31 in the month of July and looks to be in peak physical shape after completing his 6th consecutive 100-catch season as an NFL wideout.
