Head coach Jon Gruden loves him some players who are up there in age, and in Brown, he would be getting a wide receiver that is still playing at a Pro Bowl level. Steelers president Art Rooney II said last month he wasn't sure why Brown had turned against the team.

At the time, Ross Township police told WPXI-TV that an officer was searching for a bank robbery suspect when Brown's black Porsche sped by. Brown included the hashtag #NewDemands.

Afterward, it was revealed by ESPN's Adam Schefter that the veteran receiver officially requested a trade, which prompted his good friend and Jags cornerback Jalen Ramsey to suggest the Jags as his next destination.


Brown took to social media to bid farewell to the Steelers fans, saying: "Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years.time to move on and forward". The Steelers won the game but missed the playoffs for the first time since 2013. On Tuesday, he was found guilty of reckless driving after failing to show up in court, ESPN reported. He paid a $426.77 fine. On that note, these five teams should have the most interest in making a deal for Brown.

It also came out that Brown was hit was hit with two lawsuits in October for an incident that allegedly occured at his South Florida high-rise last April. However, his contract makes it unlikely that Brown would be traded. He has made at least 100 receptions in six consecutive seasons and owns the Steelers single-season record for catches and receiving yards (136 for 1,834 in 2015).
