Pro Bowl wideout Antonio Brown has reportedly asked the Steelers for a trade and he may have already hinted at where he would like to play next season. Brown sent a single emoji to San Francisco Pro Bowl tight end George Kittle.
Kittle had reached out to Brown with the implication-filled “Sup?” And Brown wanted everyone to know he heard the slight bit of recruitment, and already 49ers fans can envision a Jimmy Garoppolo-to-Brown connection.
Of course, flirting and trading are different beasts. Trading him before June 1 would come with an impossible-to-swallow $21 million cap hit. Though, if the Steelers wait until after that date, the cap hit would be about $7 million.
