Brown was benched for Pittsburgh's final game of the regular season after skipping a walk-through and not communicating with staff regarding a knee injury.
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.
The Steelers said they'll consider trade offers for Brown, but won't release him. After everything Carson Wentz just went through regarding reports of him being selfish, it would be interesting to see if the Eagles would be prepared to deal with the off and on-field drama Brown could bring when unhappy. But Brown wants a trade and he officially has requested that from the Steelers, per source.
Brown has three years remaining on a five-year $72.7m contract extension he signed before the 2017 season. The conviction stems from a November 8 incident when Brown was allegedly driving a black Porsche more than 100 miles per hour in Pennsylvania.

He added that the child will now be transferred to a different hospital where social services will look after her future welfare. She was subsequently airlifted to Albert Luthuli Central Hospital to be treated and then taken to another unnamed facility.
Bill Belichick traditionally hasn't broken the bank on wide receivers, but considering Chris Hogan, Cordarrelle Patterson and Phillip Dorsett are hitting free agency this offseason, it's worth wondering if New England at least would place a call to Pittsburgh if Brown indeed is on the trade block.
On top of that, the WR made a decision to not show up for the court hearing and was found guilty of reckless driving.
In nine seasons with the Steelers, Brown has 837 catches for 11,207 yards and 74 touchdowns.
