Wide receiver Antonio Brown asks Steelers for trade

Pittsburgh Steelers

2019 NFL Free Agency: Ranking the top free agent receivers and how Antonio Brown fits into all of it

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was found guilty of a reckless driving charge from November, WXPI-TV reported on Tuesday.

Brown is still under contract in Pittsburgh, but that marriage sounds like it's over, especially after the All-Pro wide receiver sent out this goodbye to Steelers fans on Twitter, telling fans that it's time to move on.

Brown has been with Pittsburgh his entire career but his relationship with the team has soured over the past year.

Brown is entering the third of year of a five-year $72.7 million contract with the Steelers.

Brown reportedly had a spat during practice leading up to the Steelers' Week 17 matchup vs. the Bengals, walked out of team activities and did not play in the game. The player's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said he had expressed his client's "position" to the team but did not elaborate.

Brown will not become a free agent until 2022 under his current contract with the Steelers, although trade talks have circulated heavily since the end of the 2018-19 National Football League season.

Now the attention turns to see what the Steelers do next.

If this is indeed the end for Brown as a member of the Steelers, he will go down as one of the organization's best receivers of all time. Lastly, Brown will be 31 next season and might not have many productive seasons left in him, despite the fact he has posted six consecutive 1,200-yard campaigns.

He has, however, been involved in problems off the field recently. The woman did not press charges and police have taken no further action.
