The report surfaced soon after Brown tweeted a video with a caption that thanked Steeler Nation and stated it's "time to move on".
Yes, Antonio Brown is trying desperately to force his way off the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Brown has three years remaining on his current deal, with base salaries of $12.6 million, $11.3 million and $12.5 million remaining.
Former NFL safety Gerald Alexander commented on how Brown's situation reflects the issue of age within the league, saying that the arrival of 22-year-old receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster in 2017 has made Brown "expendable". He was not seen as a star coming out of college and seemed nearly an after-thought when he was drafted in the sixth-round by the Steelers in the 2010 draft.
The NFL wide receiver was cited after being pulled over for driving in excess of 100 miles per hour in a 45 miles per hour zone on McKnight Road in Ross Township back on November 8, 2018.
Despite the off-field strife, Brown caught 104 passes for 1,297 yards and a club-record 15 touchdowns in 2018.
Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro selection, has reportedly been unhappy in Pittsburgh and is looking to be traded. The woman did not press charges and police have taken no further action. Last month, two lawsuits were filed against Brown after he allegedly threw furniture from his 14th-floor apartment.
