Steelers general manager explains the scenario that could keep Pittsburgh from trading Antonio Brown

CBS Sports

If the Pittsburgh Steelers have made one thing clear over the past few weeks, it's that they're definitely open to trading Antonio Brown. However, that doesn't mean a trade is actually going to happen. 

Although the odds are high that Brown will get dealt at some point this offseason, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert revealed on Wednesday that the team is open to keeping their disgruntled receiver under one main scenario. Colbert said the Steelers will hold on to Brown if they don't get any offers they deem good enough for a trade.

Basically, if you're an NFL team thinking about making a low-ball offer to the Steelers, then you don't even need to call them. 

"We will only make a trade if it benefits the Pittsburgh Steelers," Colbert said Wednesday during an appearance at the NFL Combine. "He knows that, his representation knows that and we're willing to take a look."

The Steelers general manager even told Pro Football Talk that the team would be willing to pay Brown his $2.5 million roster bonus that's due on March 17.
