It’s not terribly surprising that the Pittsburgh Steelers have moved quick in their attempt to trade star receiver Antonio Brown. Rather, the shocking news is that he could be headed to the Buffalo Bills.
That’s the word from NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, who reports that the Steelers are closing in on a deal to send Brown to Buffalo.

We’re honestly not even too sure what to make of this news. Will Brown be happy about the trade? Likely not. Will he even report to the Bills if the deal is made official? We have no idea.
Sending Brown to Western New York is seemingly Pittsburgh’s way of making a point to Brown. Whether that backfires remains to be seen.
Nothing can be made official until the start of the new league year on March 13. Until then, have fun with what promises to be a developing story.
