Titans reportedly out of race for WR Antonio Brown

Titans reportedly out of race for WR Antonio Brown

Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported the reason why the Brown trade fell through on Friday morning. It seemed like there was optimism a deal would get done, giving both Brown and the Steelers the divorce both parties so desperately need.

Maybe the Buffalo Bills had a deal in place late Thursday night.

Now, the Steelers find themselves searching for another trade partner.

Our own Sal Capaccio confirms that the Bills and Steelers began engaging in trade discussions earlier this week, and that things moved fast and talks were positive. There's just one problem: According to Brown, this isn't actually happening. Steelers and Bills briefly talked but "this is an old story". Finally, the Titans were another popular pick among National Football League pundits to land the four-time First-Team All-Pro, ranking just behind Oakland as the second betting-favorite to get Brown. Other players who could step up in Brown's absence include wide receiver James Washington and tight end Vance McDonald, and the team could look for more help in the draft and free agency.

Now? We know who's in control: It's Brown, not the Steelers.

But with the Bills looking for WR help for sophomore quarterback Josh Allen, a Brown acquisition makes sense.

There are still some contradicting pieces of information here - Rapoport saying it was nearly done early this morning, but Schefter's source saying it was dead on Wednesday - but it does seem regardless like Antonio Brown put the kibosh on going to Buffalo. What's going great for him?
