The speculation period is now over! After about a month or so of hypothetical trade scenarios, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has made it public that he wants a change of scenery, and the Oakland Raiders should not be takers.
Brown took to Twitter Tuesday to give his thanks and goodbyes to the city of Pittsburgh. Since that tweet was posted, the hypothetical trade scenarios took flight once again.

Well, that’s if the Steelers even care to trade him away. Considering how they handled Le’Veon Bell‘s holdout, the Steelers are sure to hold off for as long as they can, unless someone offers them a juicy deal. Someone like Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders?
They do have the draft capital with three picks in the first round, so they could coerce the Steelers into negotiations. On top of that, the two teams have already conducted a couple of trades with each other in the last year. However, despite the multiple picks the Raiders hold in this upcoming draft they by no means should trade for Antonio Brown.
