That means the Eagles, or any team that makes a move for Brown, would be landing him for a very reasonable $12.6 million next season with zero guaranteed for the rest of the deal.
ESPN's Adam Schefter just reported that Brown has requested a trade from the Steelers, who've yet to respond to the report. "#NewDemands." Brown posted a similar message on Instagram and both posts included a montage of career highlights accompanied by the song, "Do What I Want" by rapper Lil Uzi Vert.
Brown's future with the franchise came into question during the final week of the regular season when the star wide receiver didn't show up to practice ahead of a must-win game for the Steelers.
He has been ordered to pay a fine. He was allegedly driving a black Porsche more than 100 miles per hour through Ross Township, Pa.
Beyond the reckless driving charge, a lawsuit filed in October alleged that Brown hurled several large pieces of furniture off the 14th-floor balcony of his Florida apartment during an April outburst.
Despite the off-field strife, Brown caught 104 passes for 1,297 yards and a club-record 15 touchdowns in 2018. It's also worth noting that the National Football Players' Association said the Chiefs have $715,000 of unused cap space carrying over to next season.
If Brown does hit the trade market, it will be interesting to see what kind of interest there is.
Brown allegedly pushed the mother of his daughter to the ground last month in Hollywood, Florida, according to a police incident report.
