Antonio Brown wants out in Pittsburgh. He’s made that pretty clear over the past week, and is pushing further and further this week. The Steelers could take the $21 million in dead money with a trade, but are they prepared to unload someone they see as disruptive but incredibly talented?
If he were to get dealt, he’s offered up the 49ers as an example on social media. We saw his brief exchange with George Kittle on New Years Eve. Since then, he started following Kittle, Jimmy Garoppolo, and Adrian Colbert on Twitter. Then earlier today, he started following the 49ers on Instagram.
