Antonio Brown has requested a trade and used social media to highlight frustrations with the Pittsburgh Steelers and ask for guaranteed money.
Steelers brass has met with Brown and the media. They’ve acknowledged trade efforts.
According to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert has been contacted by three teams interested in trading for Brown, but Pittsburgh feels no pressure to force the issue.
#Steelers GM Kevin Colbert says three teams have reached out so far on a potential Antonio Brown trade. Won’t say what a team would need to offer for Brown, but emphasizes: “If it doesn’t benefit us, we won’t do it.” Full interview airing now on @nflnetwork

Brown is an NFL player under contract, so unless he’s willing to sit out the year, Brown has very little leverage.
This will help the Steelers to get as much from a trading partner as humanly possible.
