Brown is a good wide receiver and an excellent downfield threat when healthy, but he might not be exactly what the Colts need in terms of a No. 2 wide receiver. Brown did not attend Tuesday's hearing. Since that tweet was posted, the hypothetical trade scenarios took flight once again.
Whenever a receiver with the ability and track record of Antonio Brown comes available on the market, it grabs everyone's attention in the NFL.
The question for the Steelers will be what they'll be able to get in return.
They do have the draft capital with three picks in the first round, so they could coerce the Steelers into negotiations. The Patriots and Steelers have been relatively fierce rivals for almost two decades now, with New England coming out on top in the majority of the teams' head-to-head matchups.
As for Brown's trade request, there are a number of things the Steelers will have to consider if they choose to honor it. Add in Brown to the mix and the Minnesota head coach will be getting even less sleep during the week leading up to each of their matchups with Green Bay in 2019.
