Broncos not interested in Antonio Brown

Broncos not interested in Antonio Brown

Is there another way of interpreting his latest public-relations misstep, an interview with ESPN in which Brown pounced on comments made last week by Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert's admittedly regrettable "kids" comment?

Brown had spent the majority of the off-season up until that point seemingly trying to force a trade out of Pittsburgh, including requesting a trade and most recently taking aim at Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

"I took that to be an indication of where he is right now", Rooney said. The often-transparent coach discussed with reporters Wednesday at the NFL Combine the balance that goes into making a complicated decision like adding a polarizing player.

Brown will turn 31 years old this summer and though he's still productive, he's been a headache for the Steelers and will earn $15.125 million this season. Essentially, Brown is saying that the media tries to tear you down when you're up. "So, I mean, if someone isn't like that, then we do have a problem with that".

Brown led the National Football League with 15 touchdowns catches last season and set a record with for most catches (582) over a five-year span (2013-17). "What I would say is that interest has grown".

Brown and the Steelers have agreed it's time to part ways, but a divorce isn't always easy, and the team has admitted that they are not going to deal Brown unless they have a big offer on the table for his services.

There is an understanding that Shazier will not be playing next season, but it is important to both sides to make sure he's still capable of staying with the team while he recovers.

"We've acknowledged we are looking into the possibility of trading him", Colbert said. He has since followed the Bay Area team and several of its players on social media. "Or, I want to bring in people to pass them, and that's just what you do". There's 52 kids and it's this guy [Roethlisberger].
