Wide receiver Antonio Brown asks Steelers for trade

Apparently Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown has now added court appearances to the list of things he can't be bothered to show up for.

Just moments later ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter is confirming Brown has formally requested a trade.

Antonio Brown has not been traded nor has he been released. If the Steelers end up trading Brown, that means there will be one less team out there looking for a wide receiver when free agency begins. Pittsburgh won the game with Brown watching on the sidelines, but missed the playoffs.

Brown reportedly had a spat during practice leading up to the Steelers' Week 17 matchup vs. the Bengals, walked out of team activities and did not play in the game. Although Brown is the best receiver "available" this offseason, he comes with a lot of baggage and he's going to cost a lot in a trade. He's one of the most talented wide receivers in the National Football League and on the right team could still be dominant. If Brown is on the roster beyond five days from the start of the new season, he will receive a $2.5 million bonus. Brown has recorded at least 1,200 receiving yards and nine touchdowns in each of those campaigns, with a 1,698-yard, 13-touchdown season in 2014 marking career-highs in both categories.
