Will the Vikings have to see Antonio Brown twice a season?

Will the Vikings have to see Antonio Brown twice a season?

CBS Sports reported the Steelers would not trade the star receiver to any AFC North rival (Ravens, Browns, Bengals) or, thank goodness, the Patriots.

There's a big drop off between the 49ers and the next potential trade partner for the Steelers.

Brown is fourth among active players with 837 catches and 11,207 yards and fifth with 75 touchdown receptions. Brown had two more targets, 168, than did Smith-Schuster, while playing in one fewer game.

But the Eagles can not afford not only his salary - $12.6 million this year and a total salary cap hit of $22.1 million when his prorated signing bonus kicks in - but also the baggage he brings. Whether it's his three years left of his four-year/$68 million contract, most teams can't afford to make an offer even if they'd like to.




It wasn't too long ago that Dallas dealt a first-round pick for a No.1 wide receiver.

They want him but can't have him.

With Antonio Brown wanting out of Pittsburgh this offseason, fans are projecting where he could land in the coming months. That's when his cap charge for 2019 gets reduced from $21.1 million to $7 million, with $15.1 million in cap savings. Should the Packers be one of the teams to seriously explore the trade? Pittsburgh's salary cap would take a significant hit by sending the veteran elsewhere, and the team likely wouldn't receive equal value for Brown because of the drama that surrounded him all of past year. It's about the risk, which is high, vs. the reward, which is minimal. While Kanell doesn't think Brown is necessarily worth the headache it would require to pull off a trade, Bell continues to defend Brown's talent - although his reliability off the field is a serious issue for any team that would go in to give the large package it would take to acquire Brown.
