We knew the Antonio Brown saga with the Pittsburgh Steelers would eventually come to an end, but did not expect that decision to come down in February.
On Tuesday, the disgruntled WR took to social media and posted a video that was captioned, “Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years…time to move on and forward……….#NewDemands”.

Days before the Steelers Week 17 matchup against the Bengals, the team suspended Brown for the game due to his actions leading up to the crucial contest. His behavior on social media has lead to many believing that his departure was imminent.
No word yet if something is in the works with the front office and his next destination.
Antonio Brown has not been traded nor has he been released. But Brown wants a trade and he officially has requested that from the Steelers, per source.
