Steelers president open to trading A.B

Steelers president open to trading A.B”

"There's not much we can do right now; we have time to make a decision", Rooney said, via Gerry Dulac of the Post-Gazette. He also said the team is not closing the door on the possibility of smoothing things over with Brown, but he is not optimistic that will happen. And if you are hopeful Pittsburgh and Brown can mend their fences and find middle ground, you might be disappointed by what he had to say. How they deal with this situation is likely to result in either the pain of losing a great player, and the financial cost that comes along with it, or in the potential awkwardness of bringing back a player who undermined the team when it needed him most.

The Steelers face a $21 million cap hit if they trade Brown this offseason.

Brown did not play in the Steelers' season-ending win over the Cincinnati Bengals, for what head coach Mike Tomlin described as Brown leaving the team in its "darkest hour".

"That has to be taken into consideration, but, as I sit here today, I'm not going to say that's going to box us into anything", Rooney said. During that week Brown even made it seem as though he wished to be traded from the team, despite reports saying he never demanded a move. However, Brown will be 31 when the 2019 season kicks off so if the asking price is too high, San Francisco may not be interested. This won't be resolved anytime soon - March at the earliest.

"I'm not going to use those words", Rooney said of a trade. We have two months to go before we can do anything. Brown registered 104 receptions with a league-leading 15 receiving touchdowns through 15 games in 2018, and he has reached the 1,000-yard receiving mark in seven of his nine NFL seasons.
