Steelers president open to trading A.B

Julio Jones Antonio Brown Falcons

The Post-Gazette reports the team president says "all other options are on the table".

Brown, 30, did not play in the Steelers' regular-season finale, which saw Pittsburgh miss out on the playoffs despite a 16-13 win over the Bengals.

Pittsburgh would be giving up a great receiver if they let Brown leave, but at this point they seem to think he's not worth the hassle.

After his fallout with the Steelers toward the end of the season that saw Brown skip practices and team meetings and ultimately get benched in Week 17, stemming in part from an incident with Ben Roethlisberger, there's a good chance the four-time All-Pro won't be back in Pittsburgh next season.

While we don't know where Brown will land come the start of next season, Jones' comments suggest Atlanta is probably an unlikely fit. As Dulac pointed out, Brown is slated to receive a $2.5-million bonus from the club on March 17 and logic tells us the Steelers would more than likely target that as their decision date.

Brown is slated to count a little over $22 million against the salary cap in 2019. Brown enters the third year of a five-year, $72.7 million extension signed before the 2017 season.

Sears gets a reprieve from liquidation
The revised deal was reached after days of "virtually round-the-clock negotiations", Sears attorney Ray Schrock told the court. Lawyers for Lampert and his hedge fund, ESL Investments, were pressing for more time to sweeten his offer.

The four-time first-team All-Pro and seven-time Pro Bowl selection has led the National Football League in receptions twice (2014, 2015) and receiving yards twice (2014, 2017).

A team such as the San Francisco 49ers could be interested, as they have the cap space and the need for a wide receiver to help spur the offense. We have two months to go before we can do anything.

Rooney says cap considerations will play a factor in how the Steelers move forward.

Last year, all eyes were on running back Le'Veon Bell.

That's why this story is so tricky - and so fascinating - as the Steelers head into one of the more critical offseasons they've had in a long time.
