Brown even posted this photo on Twitter with team president Art Rooney II, adding even more fuel to the fire that's consuming the football culture in Western Pennsylvania.
A seven-time Pro Bowl and four-time All-Pro selection, Brown caught 104 passes for 1,297 yards and a career-high 15 touchdowns in 2018. "We're not going to release him, that's not on the table". Is Brown merely talking about the deal that was agreed upon back then? Rumors began swirling about a disagreement between the receiver and the team's franchise quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, after Pittsburgh decided to make Brown inactive against the Cincinnati Bengals.
"We have time to make a decision", Rooney said according to Dulac. "We have a way to go before we feel good about that". A trade for Brown makes a lot of sense for the Raiders, given the state of their wide receiver corps.

Rory McIlroy said he had the flawless warmup for the Sentry Tournament of Champions back home in Jupiter, Fla., last month. Tied with Woodland over the closing holes, Schauffele finished birdie-birdie to match four players for the record.
The new league year begins March 13, and the Steelers will likely decide on Brown's future before his $2.5-million bonus is due on March 17. We'll see how things play out. Brown recently unfollowed his current team on social media and started following the 49ers, several of its players, and liked 49ers-related content, especially content which pushed a Brown-to-San-Francisco message.
On the same day, Brown responded to criticism from former teammate Ryan Clark, who said on ESPN that the Steelers need to trade Brown.
Rooney told Gulac that there was more than just one incident that led to the receiver walking out of a practice and missing post-season meetings.
