According to Buffalo News, few stories have made more headlines than the deal that ultimately never was.
After social media was set ablaze late Thursday night with word that AB was being dealt to the Buffalo Bills, the Pro Bowl wideout chose to take matters into his own hands.
In fact, Brown even said that if the deal would have gone through, he wouldn't have spent a single day on the field for the team. However, here we sit and Brown is still a Steeler.
And, according to USA Today, Brown now holds all the proverbial cards in a potential trade deal of any kind, whether the Steelers realize it or not.
Tiger Woods' neck injury causes panic
Hadwin's spot in the restricted field event was never in doubt as members of the last Presidents Cup team automatically qualify. Woods, 43, is coming off a bounce-back season after years of health problems that included spinal fusion surgery.
I guess Antonio Brown was right. Now, however, we know that's not the case. With the new league year starting March 13, one of the teams contending for Brown may realize their free-agent targets aren't likely to commit, opening up theoretical cap space for a Brown deal.
Brown has three years remaining on a contract that will pay him $38,250,000 in salary through 2021. So, at the very least, they want something back for one of the best receivers in football.
The two teams were reportedly close to a deal, but they couldn't reach an agreement, causing the Bills to move on.
The waiting is over regarding where star wide receiver Antonio Brown will play next season. On Thursday night, it seemed Brown could be on his way to the Buffalo Bills, but things didn't pan out.
