Potential Jets target Antonio Brown demands trade from Steelers

"Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years...time to move on and forward", Brown said, adding the deuces emoji and #NewDemands.

If it was ever uncertain, Antonio Brown made one point abundantly clear today: He wants out of Pittsburgh.

Antonio Brown has been unhappy with the Pittsburgh Steelers for what seems like a while now.

Brown's future has been the subject of speculation since before the end of the regular season. The Steelers won the game but missed the playoffs for the first time since 2013.

The disgruntled Pro Bowl receiver, who was found guilty for reckless driving Tuesday morning after failing to show up to court, tweeted that he is moving on. He was allegedly driving a black Porsche more than 100 miles per hour through Ross Township, Pa. He paid a $426.77 fine.

On Tuesday, Brown basically ended his career in the Steel City, and he bid farewell to the organization on Twitter.

Despite the off-field strife, Brown caught 104 passes for 1,297 yards and a club-record 15 touchdowns in 2018.

It has also emerged Brown was hit with two lawsuits in October for an incident that allegedly occurred at his South Florida high-rise last April.

Talent wise, any team would love to bring someone like Brown on board for the 2019 season if they could receive some sort of guarantee that he wouldn't be a headache to deal with. However, his contract makes it unlikely that Brown would be traded.
