Antonio Brown Responds To Steelers Owner’s Comments With Cryptic Tweet

The Post-Gazette reports the team president says "all other options are on the table".

The post seems to be a sarcastic response to Rooney II's apparent willingness to deal Brown this offseason, who has posted at least 1,250 receiving yards in six straight seasons. That brought about plenty of speculation that Brown had played his final game in Pittsburgh's black and yellow. He was inactive for the Steelers' finale after a well-publicized spat in practice with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and there are rampant rumors he won't be back in Pittsburgh in 2019.

Brown skipped Steelers exit interviews after the conclusion of the regular season and has not spoken about the situation - but has instead used social media to react, and at times, drive the story in a new direction. He is owed $22,165,000 against the cap next season and due a $2.5 million bonus on March 17. However, the team would save $15.1 million in cash.

"There's not much we can do right now; we have time to make a decision", Rooney told the Post-Gazette. The Steelers would be on the hook for $21.1 million in dead money if they were to move Brown.

Antonio Brown to the Lions?

The four-time first-team All-Pro and seven-time Pro Bowl selection has led the National Football League in receptions twice (2014, 2015) and receiving yards twice (2014, 2017).

Rooney said the cap hit would not play into the team's decision. "We have a way to go before we feel good about that". He also indicated that the issues with Brown at the end of the season are likely part of a broader problem.
