Steelers' Brown found guilty of reckless driving

Steelers' Brown found guilty of reckless driving

There's no denying Brown's talent, but he fits the description of a diva wide receiver.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Brown has neither been traded nor released, but has requested a trade from the Steelers.

On Tuesday, Brown sent a tweet thanking Steelers fans for nine great years and said it is "time to move on and forward". With Howie Roseman clearly intent on adding weapons and explosive players, could the Eagles have interest in acquiring the Steelers star wideout, Antonio Brown?

Team president Art Rooney II told reporters last month that something changed with Brown the last week of the season and he wasn't sure why.

The four-time All-Pro signed a four-year, $68 million contract extension with the Steelers in 2017.

Brown's no-show at the end of the season followed a reported altercation with Ben Roethlisberger during a practice. Brown, 30, was a sixth-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

It also came out that Brown was hit was hit with two lawsuits in October for an incident that allegedly occured at his South Florida high-rise last April.

Brown was additionally found guilty of reckless driving after failing to make his court appearance in Pittsburgh earlier Tuesday. Might the Denver Broncos be a potential home for the seven-time Pro Bowler? The woman did not press charges and police have taken no further action.

Despite the off-field strife, Brown caught 104 passes for 1,297 yards and a club-record 15 touchdowns in 2018.
