The Pittsburgh Steelers and their star WR Antonio Brown have been on some rough waters in 2018-19.
Brown has tried to avoid showing up, plus getting in fights with coaches and players. Of course, both sides had different stories.
Either way, Brown wants out and today he officially put out a “thank you” video and moments later Adam Schefter announced that Brown has officially requested a trade.
Antonio Brown has not been traded nor has he been released. But Brown wants a trade and he officially has requested that from the Steelers, per source.
