The Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers discussed a trade involving star wide receiver Antonio Brown this week but a deal never materialized.

“We inquired about Antonio Brown on Tuesday, and kept talks open with the Steelers,” Bills general manager Brandon Beane said in a statement Friday.

We had positive discussions, but ultimately it didn’t make sense for either side. As great a player as Antonio Brown is, we have moved on and our focus is on free agency.”

The Steelers had previously told teams that Brown was expected to be traded by Friday, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Steelers’ asking price started as a first-round pick and other compensation but has been reduced to a first-round pick, sources have told ESPN.

Brown has officially been on the trading block since he met with Steelers brass last month.

In an interview with ESPN last week, the star wide receiver said he is not “angry” with the team but maintained his desire to be traded.

We can cross Buffalo off the list of possible landing spots for the wideout.
