Brown officially requests trade from Steelers

Will Eagles have interest in Antonio Brown after he request trade from Steelers

The superstar wide receiver has been linked to trade rumors since the end of last season after making it known that he wanted out of Pittsburgh.

Not long after, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Brown requested a trade and that a source believes Brown "is exhausted of playing the scapegoat for the Steelers' problems and wants to show he can thrive in another offense".

Brown can tweet whatever he wants. However, ESPN reports that cap hit can be spread over multiple years if Brown is traded after June 1. "Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years...time to move on and forward", Brown said, adding the deuces emoji and #NewDemands.

Brown has been with Pittsburgh his entire career but his relationship with the team has soured over the past year. But the Steelers aren't giving the Patriots one of the best receivers in the NFL.

Moving on from Brown will come at a price for the Steelers and some risk for the team that trades for him.

The Raiders hold three first round picks in April, including the No. 4 overall selection, and two late first rounders due to trades. With that in mind, let's take a look at the best receivers who will be available on March 13.

In nine seasons with the Steelers, Brown has 837 catches for 11,207 yards and 74 touchdowns.

The four-time All-Pro signed a four-year, $68 million contract extension with the Steelers in 2017.

While many teams would like Brown to be their top wideout in 2019, the Raiders are actually seen as a favorite to get him.
