Antonio Brown would like to see the end of the Antonio Brown era in Pittsburgh. The Mercurial (and elite) wide receiver of the Steelers publicly announced Tuesday his desire to play elsewhere, sending a message on Twitter stating that it was "time to go ahead" while thanking the Steelers fans for their nine years of support.

If you play the video on this tweet, you'll notice that there's a series of Brown highlights noted in "Now I'm doing what I want" from Lil Uzi Green, who was previously the soundtrack of a Russell Westbrook commercial released after Oklahoma City. Former Thunderclub teammate Kevin Durant left for the Golden State Warriors after learning that he no longer wanted to play alongside Westbrook. (Draw a parallel with what you would like in this situation.)

Jason La Canfora, a CBS Sports insider in the NFL, has been reporting for weeks that Brown wants to get out of Pittsburghand Brown did not make much effort to hide this desire.

Brown is still three years old for the $ 68 million contract extension he has signed with Pittsburgh, and the Steelers would benefit from very little ceiling savings (about $ 1 million). they negotiated it before the 1st of June. If they did it after June 1, they would cut its 2019 cap roughly by half (from $ 22 million to $ 12 million), but would also take away about $ 10 million of unused money by 2020. team would be looking for a first-round pick and others in exchange for his services, and considering that he is still one of the few best receivers of football, he should have a lot of contenders. If it leaves Pittsburgh, it could be a drastic change season for the Steelers, as it is generally expected that "Veon Bell will play elsewhere also next season.
