WATCH: JuJu Smith-Schuster on Antonio Brown: ‘He bleeds black and gold’

Rumors continue to persist about the possibility of the Pittsburgh Steelers trading disgruntled wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Following some late-season drama, the Steelers’ brass pretty much concluded that he will not be on the team next season. All the while, Brown has openly flirted with the idea of playing with the San Francisco 49ers.

But according to teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster, Brown is not going anywhere.

“I honestly believe he’s not going anywhere. He bleeds black and gold,” the dynamic young receiver said.

Smith-Schuster had previously gone on record indicating that he would love to see Brown return — noting that the All-Pro receiver makes his job easier.

Even then, it certainly does seem that the relationship between Brown and his Steelers is irreparable. That’s magnified by the fact that Brown’s primary issue late in the season was team captain Ben Roethlisberger.

We’re sure to find out here within the next month or so whether Pittsburgh does trade Brown. He’s owed a roster bonus in March — one that the Steelers would like to avoid if they do in fact deal him.
