Steelers president open to trading A.B

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

In an interview with Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Thursday, Rooney said the Steelers have no plans to release Brown but that "all other options are on the table". It was initially ruled as a knee injury, but reports later surfaced that an internal turmoil with Brown was the cause of his absence. Brown sat out practice for the rest of the week and was benched by head coach Mike Tomlin for the season finale.

Brown's future with the team clearly is up in the air.

"We don't have to make those decisions right now". "We'll look at all the options". "We have two months to go before we can do anything".

"All options are on the table", Rooney said.

Antonio Brown #84 of the Pittsburgh Steelers reacts after a 33 yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter during the game against the Green Bay Packers at Heinz Field on November 26, 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Whether the situation can be reconciled and have him back on the team next year, we're a long way from thinking that can happen.

And that has now made an offseason for the Steelers that already was sure to be littered with questions about how to prop open that closing window of opportunity a little more ... shall we say ... drama-filled. Brown's $2.5 million roster bonus due March 17 would incentivize the Steelers to deal him.

As the Post-Gazette reported, the Steelers can't do anything with Brown until the 2019 season officially starts on March 13th.

Within a few hours after the newspaper posted Rooney's comments, Brown tweeted a photo of himself and Rooney shaking hands, with the caption, "Good Business #Boomin".
