Rooney: 'Hard to envision' Brown at Steelers camp

  • Steelers president Art Rooney II leaves option of trading Antonio Brown open

Rooney addressed the Brown situation on Thursday, and told reporters that it's "hard to envision" seeing Brown in Steelers training camp later this year. But, he's in no hurry.

Brown, 30, led the National Football League in receiving touchdowns in 2018 with 15, and posted his sixth consecutive 100-catch season.

Detroit is listed with the second-best odds to acquire Brown, either via trade or by signing him if the Steelers decide to release him. Whether Brown possibly could come back remains a big hurdle if Rooney's words are to be believed.

"The bottom line is we were playing a significant game and he didn't do a good enough job of communicating of being available in the hours leading up to that performance", Tomlin said at the time.

FBI investigated how Trump's actions seemed to benefit Russian Federation
For one, also this week, the US attorney for the Southern District here in NY indicted Natalia V. The FBI did not respond to a query on the alleged investigation against Trump.

Brown, 30, can not be traded until March 13, when the NFL's 2019 season officially opens.

According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin wants to add to his staff, bringing another full-time assistant beyond the staff he carried previous year.

The 30-year-old wide receiver reportedly had a blowup with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the leadup to Pittsburgh's Week 17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. We'll see how things play out. There's no sense making the decision now. The Steelers would likely make a decision on his status before March 17, when he is due a $2.5 million roster bonus. Brown recently unfollowed his current team on social media and started following the 49ers, several of its players, and liked 49ers-related content, especially content which pushed a Brown-to-San-Francisco message. A divorce between the two seems more likely now with Rooney speaking than it didn't before.

Brown ranks second in Steelers history behind Hines Ward in career receptions (837), receiving yards (11,207) and touchdown catches (74).
