A Steelers/Antonio Brown divorce has gone from being a strong possibility to a virtual inevitability.
Team President Art Rooney II said yesterday that it's "hard to envision" Brown with the team once Training Camp rolls around this Summer:
Brown capped a season of drama for the Steelers by no-showing for practice which led to his benching for their crucial Week 17 game against Cincinnati - they won but fell short of the playoffs at 9-6-1. At this point, it appears that the relationship between he and the team is too far gone.
So, could the Colts be one of Brown's suitors?
No offense to veteran Dontrelle Inman, who has performed admirably, but they're in desperate need of another star-caliber receiver to pair with TY Hilton. Even with the drama in Pittsburgh, the price tag for the 30-year old will be high. Lesser receivers like Amari Cooper and Brandin Cooks have each been acquired for first-round picks, so you would think a #1 (plus more picks) would be the minimum offer. Any team that acquires him will also have to inherit the last three year's of Brown's $72 million extension that he signed before the 2017 season. Brown can't be traded until the new league year starts on March 17th.
Earlier this month, SB Nation listed the Colts among Brown's potential suitors with a proposal of their first-rounder this year (will be 25th or lower), their second-round pick from the Jets (35th overall), and a 2019 fifth-rounder.
