    I think AB has at least three years of high-level play in him, which would get him to the end of his contract.

    Thats peanuts for a WR of his caliber...By caliber I mean, quite possibly, the 2nd best WR OF ALL TIME...SOMEONE will pay...Whichever team does..The fanbase will be supercharged, that's how big this dude is, and that's what teams want... ...SOMEONE will step up, always does, always will...The greed takes over...It's as bad as the players...


    They officially say no, then...How about this...How about that...He will be dealt, and we will get a fair price...Bank on it!

    He is absolutely. But of course the jury is still out on moore just like it is for almost every player after 1 season. After next yr then we can probably decide that but it's still too early to write him off. And yupp I think ne would give him a look as well but of course we wouldnt trade anyone to them especially a player of his caliber.

    Screw what's best for him. I want him in the worst possible situation for him that yields us the highest return.




    Scenario 5 is the best. I'd take a Top 5-10 1st and a 3rd for him at the very least.

    Steelers fans are funny. AB scores during a game "OMG, did you see that, AB is a beast! Best WR!" When discussing trade value, Steelers fans be like, naa, 4th rd maybe :lolol:

    I don't think the offense missing AB had anything to do with that dismal performance. I really do think this AB stuff had gotten into their collective heads. They seemed out of sync . AB is great but I would rather suffer the consequences of a worse offense then to have any team player causing distractions and the chemistry of the team. Let's get back to Steeler football.

    Ramsey wouldn't be a good locker room guy here, also his rookie contract will be up soon, he will be seeking a big contract. Give me Peterson instead, he still has at least 2 more years on his contract, then if he sucks they won't be on the hook for a large contract.

    And then stay on the field with the defense as a safety.

    The only reason we would trade AB is because of his conduct detrimental to the team. It would be pretty ironic to trade him for a guy like Ramsey.

    I’m really hoping this ain’t true but I read that AB posted some DM’s from Brady. There is no way in hell we would be dumb enough to trade him to NE right?

    If he goes to NE, not a single record would be safe and Brady might just stick around. Dammit I really thought this was the last year for them, why do we want to help them.

    I don’t care what they offer trade AB to San Fran, the farthest away from us as possible. Take a 2nd and just be happy about it.

    Belichick is not putting up with Brown's temper tandrums. Randy Moss didn't behave the way Brown has been.

    Just saw another headline. Supposedly we are listening to trade offers for Brown prior to free agency says Ian Rapoport.

    Here is part of article: "If the Steelers do trade Brown, they would save $1 million in salary cap space, per Rapoport, and create $15 million in cash savings. A deal would have to happen before the third day of the league year, when Brown is due a $2.5 million roster bonus."

    This would be true if you had one or two teams interested. I would think that there would be several interested in the best WR in the NFL for cheap for the next 3 years.

    Another team I could see a viable trade partner is Green Bay. Brown would be happy to have Rodgers throwing the ball to him. Green Bay had an off year and has reasonably good draft position/picks. If we trade Brown, I want him to go to the NFC. Brown will want contender with good QB. As I mentioned before, maybe Carolina too.

    He will not be the best wide receiver in the next 2 or 3 years. He arguably wasnt even the best this yr you could argue it was DeAndre Hopkins.

    You might make that argument but most people recognize AB as the best WR in football.

    If GM's had a crystal ball, life would be much easier for them but as it is, they have to gamble. One of them will on AB. They will think they are the team that can keep him happy and reap the rewards. Happens al the time.

    Ok, 3rd best. 4th best. Whatever the case, his production will far outpace his salary cap hit for whoever gets him.

    You are so right man, every team thinks they will be the ones to make the player work out. Can’t wair for them to see what AB is really like. If he did it to us he’ll do t to anyone.

    As others have stated, AB will be commanding some serious interest. Whomever wants him though will have to pay a price. HOF talents do not come cheap. Just ask Chicago.



    That being said, someone will pounce on AB. Just a matter of time; short or long being irrelevant. My odds on favorite is still Oakland but I am not ruling out the New York Jets either.

    No trade is the perfect scenario. Suck up the drama and deal with it like men and move on. Juju making a name will only make it better for both come next year

    Like either of those teams as a place for AB to go.. Just do not want to make a team better that could honestly be SB bound. I dont think the Raiders or the Jets are going to be improved enough to be a threat to win a title
