Brown hinted at the news on Twitter Tuesday, writing, "Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years.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?

Veteran wide receiver Antonio Brown on Tuesday said goodbye to the Pittsburgh Steelers fan base.

Fitting Brown under the salary cap, if he were to stay on his current deal, would be possible for the Eagles.

Banks is the fourth member of the starting lineup to die, following captain Bobby Moore, Alan Ball and Ray Wilson. We are devastated to lose him but we have so many happy memories and could not have been more proud of him .


With all the needs this team has and Carson Wentz' impending contract extension, are the Eagles prepared to commit $12.6 million to Brown if does hit the trade market? Of course, one would imagine there will be a number of suitors for the talented wide receiver, but every team should make sure they have a structure in place to foster a good relationship with Brown or else the new marriage could turn toxic quickly. He will be 31 years old by the time the 2019 season opens though he isn't showing any signs of age or wear and tear and would be an asset to any team who scoops him up.

The announcement came just hours after it was revealed that Brown was found guilty of reckless driving after not appearing in court today.

He has surpassed 100 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards in each of the past six seasons, and in 2018 he caught 104 passes for 1,297 yards and a career-high 15 touchdowns.
