First it was Le'Veon Bell playing with the hearts of Steeler Nation, the subject of constant conflicting reports all year long on whether he'd ever report to the team.
He had in-game sideline tiffs with Ben Roethlisberger, teammates, and coaches that would have made Odell Beckham Jr. proud.
Most likely, Pittsburgh will be rewarded with some solid draft picks in exchange for Brown, but for the sake of having a little fun, let's imagine a scenario in which Philadelphia does become a trade partner, and decides to send one of their key players as part of the deal. Marcus Peters, Brandin Cooks, Amari Cooper, Khalil Mack, Dante Fowler, all worth significantly less than Antonio Brown (minus debatably Khalil Mack) all being moved for value no one believed they'd be moved for.
Picking up the phone or even listening to a potential Steelers sales pitch is not something the Eagles can afford in any sense.

Amazon Is Acquiring Eero to Round out Its Smart Home Plan
Amazon did not disclose the financial terms of the deal, though it said the deal was subject to "customary closing conditions". Amazon has clearly seen the potential in the hardware/software that the company has developed and wants a piece of the action.
Since Brown is now under contract in Pittsburgh, the only chance of him leaving would be if the team chose to move on through a trade or release, which is why it seems likely the Steelers will look at potential teams expressing interest in the receiver. Brown established himself as the best wide receiver in the league during his nine years in Pittsburgh. The 49ers, Jets, and Raiders are each among the top seven teams in salary cap space.
Brown is due to earn just under $13 million in 2019. He pulled out of the Pro Bowl with an injury and team president Art Rooney II indicated the team had been unable to make contact with Brown in the weeks after Pittsburgh finished 9-6-1 and failed to reach the playoffs.
