Everything seems to indicate that the meeting between wide receiver Antonio Brown and the owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Art Rooney, resulted in the receiver leaving the team, as he had requested.
Although there is still no official report of the conversations held by both parties, Brown wrote in his social networks that “we both agreed that it is time to move forward.”
Sources in the league indicate that the Steelers agreed to work on a possible transfer, but Brown and his agent Drew Rosenhaus are not allowed to speak with other teams.
Since last week it was announced that the player and the team would meet in Florida to discuss the confrontational situation that has grown since the off-season.
The controversy began at the end of the year when Brown stayed out of the end of the season after not showing up for some training and team meetings.
Subsequently, Brown has tried to force his way out of the Steelers using various resources.
During the weekend, Brown issued veiled accusations to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, as well as head coach Mike Tomlin.
On Monday, in another of his social networks, he asked the teams with the ability to offer him a contract with guaranteed money, “call me”.
Should the Steelers decide to grant Brown his request to leave the team, they would leave a massive $ 21.12 million deadweight cap.
Brown is owed a $ 2.5 million bonus on March 17, which means that if a transfer is made, it is likely that the Pittsburgh team must do so before then. Pittsburgh (USA) UU.), (EFE) .-
