Steelers columnist says the time is now to trade Antonio Brown. Do you agree? [POLL]
Ever since his Facebook Live fiasco, reports out of Pittsburgh is that the front office and coaching staff is growing tired of Antonio Brown’s “antics” and a separation of sorts could be in the works.
Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette recently opined that the Steelers should try to trade Brown, due to the salary cap and the reality that, as Brown approaches his 29th birthday, a decline could be coming. Some of the assertions contained in the column, however, should make any potential buyers wary.
“Brown’s three excessive celebrations penalties early in the season were bad enough,” Cook writes. “But there was the incident in the first Miami game when he jogged back to the line of scrimmage, delaying his teammates from running their two-minute offense. In more than one game, when he wasn’t happy with how he was being used, he frequently ran the wrong patterns, either because of a lack of focus or — worse — intentionally. It happened a week ago in the AFC championship. That’s inexcusable.”
Cook argues that it’s the quarterback who has made Brown, and that Ben Roethlisberger would have other options in the passing game if Brown leaves.
“Brown is not a bad guy or malicious person,” Cook writes. “He’s just not all that smart. It’s hard to imagine him changing now.”
So clearly, Brown has grown out of favor with some in Pittsburgh. After reading this it made me think, what do the Steelers and NFL fans in general think about Brown. Should he be traded? Now you can have your voice heard. Vote in the box below and comment where you think he should go if traded…..
