Antonio Brown drama with Bills shows why he'll be tough to trade

After nearly seven hours of peak social media drama, Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane set the record straight Friday morning about a potential trade between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Bills for disgruntled wide receiver Antonio Brown. However, Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer reports that after Brown refused to go to Buffalo, there are "very few options left" for the Steelers to make a trade. He punctuated his report by saying "there it is", as if it was a done deal and happening.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane released a statement Friday morning confirming that the team was engaged in trade talks with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but have now moved on.

If one thing is clear, Brown's value has dropped significantly in recent weeks, and it's worth wondering what kind of deal the Steelers will actually get. Apparently they need to find a real contender with a quarterback Brown likes, that is also willing to start their package with a first-round pick.

"We inquired about Antonio Brown on Tuesday, and kept talks open with the Steelers", Beane said.

According to ESPN, other teams that have expressed the strongest interest in trading for Brown are the Oakland Raiders, Tennessee Titans and Washington Redskins.

Pittsburgh would have an awkward situation to handle next season if Brown is still in town.

It seemed like Brown was set to go to Buffalo.

With free agency starting next week, perhaps the drama surrounding Brown will quiet down. That contract made him the highest paid receiver in the league with an annual cap hit of $17 million.

Ultimately, Kanell believes that Brown is going to be hard to move, despite no shortage of suitors, due to the circus that will follow him wherever he goes.
