  • Steelers offseason The Antonio Brown dilemma will go a long way in shaping the offseason plan

This year, that focus shifts over to the other offensive powerhouse: Antonio Brown.

Tomlin acknowledged last week that Brown might have become more of a distraction than he's worth.

San Francisco isn't the only team with draft assets to facilitate a deal and the cap space to fit Brown's $22 million cap hit next season, then his $18 million and $19 million hits the next two years.

"That has to be taken into consideration, but, as I sit here today, I'm not going to say that's going to box us into anything", Rooney told Dulac.


"I'm not going to use those words", Rooney said of a trade.

Beyond that, Rooney said the team is leaving all of its options open regarding Brown, which would mean the team will likely have to attempt to trade him. We have two months to go before we can do anything. "So, there's no reason why they have to hurry and make a decision right now, which would be a decision made out of weakness and made out of vulnerability". We'll see how things play out. On the 17th, Brown will be owed a $2.5 million roster bonus which would ultimately cost the Steelers. But to have the entire situation turn into a potential trade scenario and possibly seeing Brown in a different uniform in 2019 is shocking.

Like clockwork, 49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley continued the team's efforts to recruit the WR, by tweeting a hand-waving emoji at Brown, in response to the receiver posting a picture of himself shaking hands with Rooney.

Brown ranks second in Steelers history behind Hines Ward in career receptions (837), receiving yards (11,207) and touchdown catches (74).
