NFL Trade Rumors: Redskins out on Antonio Brown, Deal with Bills not happening

Where does Antonio Brown end up?

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins have reportedly been involved in trade talks with the Pittsburgh Steelers for WR Antonio Brown who is forcing himself off the team. This trade makes little sense for Washington with their uncertainty at QB, and their current cap space(~$17 million). The Steelers are expected to make a deal today, and their have been a lot of rumors coming out leading up to the start of free agency.

Last night ESPN’s Dianna Russini reported that the Redskins are out on Antonio Brown. This is good news, but it’s not over until it’s over.

She also reported that the Saints, Titans, Buccaneers, and Broncos are out of the Antonio Brown sweepstakes.

Who was in on the Brown trade? The Green Bay Packers.

Then came Ian Rapoport to purportedly put an end to the game. The Buffalo Bills were closing in on a deal for Brown.

Adam Schefter and others were quick to shoot that report down. Source fight!

Rapoport then countered Russini’s sources that the Packers were in the mix for Brown.

After reporting the Bills were out because Brown said no...

What does this mean for the Redskins and Antonio Brown? Not much yet. He is still on the trade block, but his list of suitors is small, or large, depending on your sources. Will a deal happen today? Hopefully so the Redskins name can really be off this list.
