It took a while for the Pittsburgh Steelers to get a market going for Antonio Brown, but it appears they're ready to deal. The Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos have also bowed out, Rapoport reported. On Wednesday, he tweeted that three new teams have entered the picture.
Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowl player, tallied 1,297 receiving yards and 15 scores with the Steelers in 2018.
Reasonably enough, the Steelers want to avoid trading the All Pro receiver within the division, meaning AFC North rivals - Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns - are most certainly out of the question, according to a report by ESPN. Brown's conversation with James marked his first extended public comments since requesting a trade last month.

NSW Police described Reddy's disappearance as "out of character" and said there were serious concerns of her welfare. She last spoke with her family at about 11am on Sunday, telling them she planned to head home for a late breakfast.
When a deal is done, it will be the end of an ugly divorce between the star receiver and the franchise, which had been brewing for some time then exploded after a Week 17 practice feud with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Jets GM Mike Maccagnan had downplayed the Jets' interest in acquiring players via a trade last week at the National Football League scouting combine.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Steelers have informed teams of their desire to move quickly and they're encouraging those teams to put together their best offer ASAP.
Brown has spent his entire nine-year career in Pittsburgh.
