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

In an interview with Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Thursday, Rooney said the Steelers have no plans to release Brown but that "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 from thinking that can happen. We all know there have been problems with Brown's attitude and his relationship with the team over the last two seasons.

"As we sit here today, it's hard to envision that", Rooney told the newspaper when asked if Brown would be with the Steelers when they open training camp in July. Brown has reportedly refused calls from Rooney and head coach Mike Tomlin. The Steelers would likely make a decision on his status before March 17, when he is due a $2.5 million roster bonus.

Shortly after those comments made their way across social media, the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver took to Instagram and posted a cryptic photo of him and Rooney shaking hands.

The luxury carmaker, owned by India's Tata , says the cuts will be in addition to the 1,500 people who left the business in 2018. AM reported last monmth on reports that JLR would cut up to 5,000 jobs from its work force.

San Francisco isn't the only team with draft assets to facilitate a deal and the cap space to fit Brown's $22 million cap hit next season, then his $18 million and $19 million hits the next two years. Brown also is very close with Pro Bowl TE George Kittle and has started following several 49ers players and the team's official account on Twitter, so make of that what you wish. That brought about plenty of speculation that Brown had played his final game in Pittsburgh's black and yellow.

"We'll see how things play out", Rooney said.

The internal troubles with Brown may be the biggest factor that keeps the 49ers from pulling the trigger on a trade for the nine-year veteran.
