Odds Makers Like Antonio Brown to Remain with Steelers

The NFL completed its 2018 season on February 3 with the New England Patriots winning Super Bowl LIII. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ season ended well before that. However, drama around the team continues. It appears that it will not end any time soon. All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown has voiced his frustration with the organization. Sources close to the player and team have said Brown has requested to be traded from the only NFL team the 30-year old has played with throughout his pro career.

Things appeared to be out of order with Brown and the organization most of the season. The last straw may have been when Brown was deactivated for the Steelers final game of the season versus the Cincinnati Bengals because of disciplinary issues.
