The Pittsburgh Steelers are reportedly exploring trade options for Antonio Brown, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. However, they haven't granted the receiver permission to seek a trade.
Brown has reportedly told members of the Steelers organization that he hasn't closed the door on returning to the team, per Rapoport.
In the last week, Brown has posted a thank-you note to the city of Pittsburgh as well as photos of himself in San Francisco 49ers gear.
On Thursday, Steelers owner Art Rooney II publicly discussed needing to have a sit-down with Brown before deciding a course of action on the wide receiver's future with the team.
