PITTSBURGH – Antonio Brown makes his trade request for his contract.
The challenged Pittsburgh Steelers receiver said on an Instagram video that he didn't play without more guaranteed money. Brown has told Steelers that he wants to be equipped and uses social media to reinforce that desire.
"If your squad wants to win and your group wants a hungry wide receiver that is best in the world, someone hit my phone," Brown told his phone camera while working on an elliptical. "Tell them I don't make any guarantees. I won't even play myself for this NFL, you heard."
Steelers All-Pro's broad recipient Antonio Brown took questions from fans on Twitter on Saturday his latest trade inquiry and his relationship with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Brown has no more true guarantees left on his current deal. The $ 72.7 million five-year extension he signed in 2017 includes base salaries of $ 12.625 million, $ 11.3 million, and $ 12.5 million. The relatively modest figures are regarded as a place of sale in a trade. Brown tells a $ 2.5 million roster bonus on March 17, but Steelers could avoid paying by trading or dropping him before that date.
NFL Contract can be reworked, so Brown can ask a new law to convert officials to guarantees – – A strategy that Steelers used twice with Brown earlier and converted future money into a signing bonus. But teams have the power because he is under contract. Brown's only real lever is threatening to endure.
Brown becomes July 31, and Steelers makes the recipient JuJu Smith-Schuster a point of contact in the crime. The team would take $ 21.0 million in dead money by dropping or trading Brown, but would offset the money by saving its wage of $ 22,165 million for 2019.
Brown, who said he would like to be known as " Mr Big Chest "from now on is undiscovered.
"I think I did everything. What do you think about? What's left for me to do?" Brown said. "Know a Super Bowl?" Hi, must be the right team for that, right? Do I smoke? I have a lot of fuel built up. When this fuel gets to smoke, hope you are in shape, you hope "I am ready to go 36 rounds, like a heavyweight, you heard. …
" If your team got money guaranteed, tell them to call to me. AB cannot make any more guarantees. So we clarify. I want you to be clear and understand something. This is not a game, people. This is not for show; this should not be cool. This strictly inspires you that no one can decide your destination, but you. "
Brown added his trading request last month but Steelers weighs options and will be patient. They want a high draft pick as opposed to Brown, holding an NFL record with six consecutive 100-year seasons.  Brown met on Tuesday with Steelers president Art Rooney II, Brown is doing his best to apply public pressure on Steelers, thanking fans for nine years with team and fielding questions on Twitter, in a Q&A session on Saturday, Brown told Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has an "owner mentality" to call out players and coaches without repercussions and this coach Mike Tomlin told the team Brown ended in week 17 while he was injured.
