Antonio Brown doesn’t appear to be returning to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2019. On Tuesday, the receiver said his goodbyes to Steelers fans.

Citing #NewDemands, Brown wrote “it’s time to move on and forward.”

Brown’s trade value is said to be tanking of late, thanks in part to a his attitude issues as a member of the Steelers, and because of off-field issues regarding his daughter and her mother recently.

The San Francisco 49ers have been the team Brown has targeted. Whether they are interested is another matter altogether, especially in light of his domestic dispute and other issues — both on and off the field — over the past couple of years.

It’s going to be fascinating to see if he is traded, or if the Steelers choose to just release him and let him leave on his own terms.
