Steelers, Bills Reportedly Close On Antonio Brown Trade

Le'Veon Bell Derek Carr

Pittsburgh was close to a trade of Brown to the Buffalo Bills on Thursday before he indicated he wouldn't report to that franchise.

So what happened? According to Rapoport, the Bills had "intense talks" and nearly finalized a trade with the Steelers, but Brown would not commit to showing up in Buffalo if he was dealt there.

The 30-year-old Brown had 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns last season.

After talks with the Buffalo Bills fizzled out seemingly as soon as they had started, the wideout is expected to be closing in on a deal.

While there has been no official report yet on the supposed deal to send Brown to the Bay Area, Dan Fetes of WROC reported last night that Oakland had offered a second and a fourth round pick for Brown's services.

It was previously reported that the Titans, Redskins and Raiders were all in the running. Those two factors combine to dramatically narrow the pool of teams available to the Steelers as a trade partner, which could in turn potentially drive down his asking price.

But in an interesting twist, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal spoke about the situation and reported the Raiders "balked" at a new contract and opted to hold off on a trade.

The Raiders appear to be the current frontrunner to acquire Brown, according to a report Friday afternoon.
