Rumor: Peter King says Antonio Brown doesn’t want Steelers to trade him

Rooney II also said he wouldn't be releasing the polarizing star, but "all other options are on the table".

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been embroiled in controversy ever since it was revealed that Antonio Brown wasn't injured for their crucial Week 17 game, rather he was suspended for the game because of his behavior towards Ben Roethlisberger and missing practices. The team president added he and coach Mike Tomlin have not spoken to Brown. But I will say all other options are on the table.

"Whether the situation can be reconciled and have him back on the team next year, we're a long way away from thinking that can happen".

And that has now made an offseason for the Steelers that already was sure to be littered with questions about how to prop open that closing window of opportunity a little more ... shall we say ... drama-filled.

"As we sit here today, it's hard to envision that", Rooney told Gerry Dulac. "If we decide something has to be done, we'll figure out how to deal with that".

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.

While there are countless teams that should be interested in a player of Brown's caliber, trading him won't be simple. We all know there have been problems with Brown's attitude and his relationship with the team over the last two seasons.

Earlier this week, the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the team was looking to trade the Miami native. There's no sense making the decision now.

In 15 games, Brown recorded 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns, setting a new team record for majors.
