Bills bail on Antonio Brown trade talks, per report

NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported late Thursday night the Bills were "closing in" on a trade with Pittsburgh for Brown, a report Brown himself denied on Instagram. According to reports, Brown grew upset during a team training session, then skipped practices and meetings leading up to the game, for which he was benched by Coach Mike Tomlin. He's only made it tougher for the team to move him since.

The Steelers reportedly told teams they planned on trading him by Friday and to submit final offers, but right now it's unclear where things are headed. The Bills didn't know if Brown was going to actually play for them. Brown demanded a trade after Pittsburgh's season ended.

The Steelers likely can not wait to rid themselves of the headache that AB has created, so we believe a trade will come very soon.

I mean they went on & on & on & on tirelessly bashing Buffalo. As of last Friday, the three teams that had shown the most interest in the wide receiver were the Oakland Raiders, Washington Redskins and Tennessee Titans.

The jokes are out in full force following Antonio Brown's decision to not come to Buffalo to play for the Bills.

Brown is due a $2.5 million roster bonus by the Steelers on March 17. He said he wanted to go to a contender and the Bills finished 6-10 last season.

SI's Albert Breer reports the Steelers are running out of options to trade Brown. If the Steelers get desperate enough, they may end up unloading the disgruntled receiver for a shockingly low return.
