The Pittsburgh Steelers will now look to trade wide receiver Antonio Brown. 

Brown and the Steelers met Tuesday and came away with the conclusion that a trade would be “best” for both sides.

The star wideout has had a tumultuous last few months, dating back to when he skipped practice the last week of the season after a heated confrontation with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. 

Drafted by the Steelers in the sixth round of the 2010 draft, Brown emerged as one of the league’s top wideouts. He had 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2018 in 15 games. 

While the Steelers will pursue a trade, Brown and his agent reportedly won’t be given permission to talk to other teams to help facilitate a deal.
