Saints back out of Antonio Brown sweepstakes

Saints back out of Antonio Brown sweepstakes”

Brown cites preferential treatment of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger as reason for his deteriorating relationship with the Steelers.

He probably didn't think he'd end up in Buffalo, but that's where it's looking like he'll go, even though Brown responded with "fake news" to Rapoport's report.

The Antonio Brown era in Pittsburgh could finally soon be over.

According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, Pittsburgh is close to finalizing a deal with the Buffalo Bills.

But from Brown's perspective, it'd be impossible to see the reported trade as a win.

It would appear this deal is far from over.

For what it's worth, NFL Network is the only outlet to have reported the deal and it has not been made official by either team.

As of early Friday morning on the East Coast, it's still not clear if the Bills are on the verge of acquiring Brown nearly exactly 10 years to the day they signed Terrell Owens.

Last season, Brown led the National Football League with 15 receiving touchdowns. Entering his second season, quarterback Josh Allen now has a markedly inexperienced and unproven group of pass-catchers, led by wide receivers Zay Jones and Robert Foster. Brown, who turns 31 in July, has three years left on his current deal, set to pay him approximately $38 million.

The Steelers were reportedly seeking top offers from clubs with an intent to reach a deal by Friday.
