Eagles have no interest in trading for Antonio Brown

Unlike previous reports the Steelers have strategically passed along to the media, the team was smart enough this time to not include any interested teams - opting instead to keep the supposed bidders anonymous.

A few other teams have been reported to be interested - namely the Tennessee Titans, the Oakland Raiders and the Washington Redskins.

As the Steelers search for a trade partner for Antonio Brown, they have set some loose boundaries.

Three new teams have thrown their hats in the ring which could get this deal done sooner than expected.

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen needs playmakers, and you'd be hard pressed to find a more productive player in recent memory than Brown. Brown's conversation with James marked his first extended public comments since requesting a trade last month.

Brown has a $12.625 million base salary for the 2019 National Football League season, and trading him will give the Steelers more than $21 million in dead money against the cap.

Woods claimed the title of fastest man at the combine with a 4.29 40-yard dash, and that alone earns a spot on this list. A little more context? Gary needed to test well, given his inconsistent college stats, and he did just that.

Brown has asked for a trade after his relationship with the Steelers went south last season.

"But if those teams step up and say, 'Look, we'll give you the best picks or the best players, ' then we have to make that judgement", he said.

"Had a great meeting with Mr.Rooney today we discussed a lot of things and we cleared the air on several issues!" It's unknown what Pittsburgh is hoping to fetch in return for the receiver but it's probably safe to assume that team wants a high-round draft pick.

The biggest offseason storyline of the 2019 season so far is where will disgruntled star Antonio Brown land?

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Steelers have informed teams of their desire to move quickly and they're encouraging those teams to put together their best offer ASAP.
