Not going to happen, where does this money come from? 

Steelers. They’d have to flip the bill.

that wright contract really hamstrung us but gave cam the game-breaker he finally needed

if there’s one thing marty is good at, it’s picking up WRs that finish with 400 yards at the end of the year

Found this...hmm, he is definitely going to be traded IMO.  Doubt it is here though.

A team that traded for Brown would get him at cap costs of $15.125 million in 2019, $11.3 million in 2020 and $12.5 million in 2021. None of that is guaranteed. The team would get one of the top wide receivers in the NFL at a cost of $12.975 million per year with no guarantees.

The money part isn't bad at all for him.  The problem is the assets you would probably have to give up for him.  I think this team needs to get younger and add some talent at several positions.  Best and cheapest way to do that is with draft picks.

Also we have two receives, Moore and Samuel, that seem to be developing well.  Not sure if the money and assets wouldn't help the overall team more at other positions.

I think it's wrong to assume his current attitude would just carry over here. Until this beef he was about as much of a difficult diva as Cam is. He's over that situation and it's a much different one here.

That being said I don't think it makes much sense now. He's practically the perfect WR but Moore and Samuel are a healthy shoulder away from being more then fine for us. We have other needs.

Oh I agree he won’t be coming here but someone will pull the trigger IMO.  Just pointing out he is fairly affordable.  Of course he quit in that last Steelers game with the playoffs on the line.

Heard yesterday that (who was it... team president?) someone said that the Steelers did not anticipate him being there for training camp.  That they were 'exploring all other options'.  They said he wouldn't be cut, though. So, and correct my math here if I'm off, cut + play + trade + kill = all available options?

 

Last time a big name WR had this kind of talk around him, I think he went to the Pats for a 3rd (Moss).  that's IIRC. 

 

If we are getting him for a 3rd, anyone opposed to that?

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos "may be plotting at run" at trading for Antonio Brown.

The Jets, 49ers, and Colts are also expected to have interest. Pittsburgh has made clear they plan to move on from Brown despite his dead cap hit. Brown is entering his age-31 season and is one of the highest paid receivers in the league, so he's unlikely to command the first-round value Oakland got for Amari Cooper. The Steelers may have to settle for a pair of Day 2 picks.

I definitely dont think we're a realistic option, but I just wanted to say I definitely don't think he commands a first round pick...  the WR market is volatile and unpredictable...  Brandin Cooks was traded for a first round pick, while other guys haven't garnered the same return.  Also, Brown is 30 and has a history of locker room/off-field drama...  I'm guessing a 3rd round pick at most.

No thanks!!  build a team through the draft  instead of giving up draft picks for players teams don't want

For a pair of day 2 picks, I think I might be interested depending on Cam’s shoulder. Moore, Brown, Samuel, Thomas/Olsen and CMC would be an embarrassment of offensive weapons if Cam’s shoulder is OK. Those cap hits listed above aren’t bad at all. If you want to sign Clowney or Lawrence, they’ll cost $17m per season. I wonde if they’d take a 3rd this year and say a 2nd next? That way we still get a stud G/C and you could still afford Williams at T. We could drop Smith, Searcy and Munnerlyn and be at $33m in cap space and Kalil and Poe would open up even more. Enough to add a FA S (there’s a ton again) and go D 1, 3 and 4 and maybe OT/G depth 5 and 6. 

That said, this doesn’t matter. Some of these teams have way more cap even though we could open up a ton of space and because of that they could easily outbid us with picks.

Why do teams with no QB want Brown. Cam will know how the Panthers feel about him if they don't go get his guy when he's on the trading block.

i actually kinda agree with something you typed.  wow.    he'll sure be pouty.
