Antonio Brown's cryptic response to owner's trade hint

One online sportsbook thinks it could happen.

According to league regulations, nothing can be done with Brown until March 13, the first day of the league's new year. We're not going to release him, that's not on the table. The Lions do have enough cap room to afford him, and spending premium dollars on receivers has never been an issue for the Lions.

"We'll look at all the options", Rooney said "We're not going to release him, that's not on the table. We're not closing the door on anything at this point", Rooney said.

"We don't have to make those decisions right now". That, of course, means the two sides could always make up and get back together, but it also means the Steelers could actually trade Brown.

Kyler Murray expected to enter NFL Draft
While declaring doesn't guarantee Murray will play baseball instead of football, but it certainly increases that chance. But a quote about Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray from newly hired Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury has been circulating.

In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl. The Henry County Sheriff's Office said no one by that name has been arrested since the warrant was issued past year .

Is Brown implying it would be "bad business" to trade the NFL's leader in touchdown receptions, or simply reminding Rooney and the Steelers of better days between the two.

Like clockwork, 49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley continued the team's efforts to recruit the WR, by tweeting a hand-waving emoji at Brown, in response to the receiver posting a picture of himself shaking hands with Rooney. Brown enters the third year of a five-year, $72.7 million extension signed before the 2017 season. The Steelers would be on the hook for $21.1 million in dead money if they were to move Brown. He then showed up to play against the Cincinnati Bengals, but the team held Brown out.

TMZ caught up with Falcons star wide receiver Julio Jones and the cameraman asks the all-pro about Brown possibly joining Atlanta, to which Jones replies, "We good over here". "We'll see how things play out", Rooney said. Another mid-round pick and a roster player would likely have to be part of the package as well.
