Steelers owner Art Rooney II doesn't envision Antonio Brown remaining with Pittsburgh

Antonio Brown Peter King

But I will say all other options are on the table.

Brown seemingly knew of the owner's comments; he posted a picture of himself and Rooney on Instagram along with the vague caption: "Good business #Boomin".

Rooney added he will talk to other players to see how they feel, but it would be "hard to envision" Brown still with the Steelers when they report to training camp in July. That brought about plenty of speculation that Brown had played his final game in Pittsburgh's black and yellow. He reportedly had been benched for getting into an altercation with a teammate during practice and missing a meeting the night before the game. The statement is the first concrete, on-the record indication that the Steelers are looking to trade Brown this offseason. Brown's $2.5 million roster bonus due March 17 would incentivize the Steelers to deal him.

Brown is slated to count a little over $22 million against the salary cap in 2019.

'Captain Marvel' Producer Reveals New Details On Phil Coulson's Role
Jackson, who plays a younger version of Nick Fury in the new movie, says Captain Marvel ( Brie Larson ) can time travel. In the comics, Yon-Rogg is a colonel in the Kree Army and an antagonist to Captain Marvel .

"There's not much we can do right now; we have time to make a decision", Rooney told the Post-Gazette. Even if the Steelers do decide to trade him, he would still count over $21 million against their cap.

The 49ers have been in the market for a true No. 1 wide receiver since John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan took over.

Brown missed the team's 2018 finale against the Cincinnati Bengals. Brown did not make an All-Pro team this season despite leading the league in receiving touchdowns.

Rooney says cap considerations will play a factor in how the Steelers move forward. Once again, after dealing with the Le'Veon Bell contract situation for two years and finally moving on from him, the Steelers are embroiled in yet another conflict with a star skill-position player that might drag on.
