Antonio Brown has officially requested that Pittsburgh trades him this offseason, and the news has the entire football community buzzing over the possibilities. In fact, stars across the league are beginning their recruitment.
The Steelers don’t have to move Brown since he doesn’t hold all the leverage. Yet, the relationship between both sides could have deteriorated to the point of no return.
Brown pretty much revealed that he wants out of Pittsburgh on social media today, saying “time to move on and forward.”
While management will have to time to sort through all the options available, it appears one superstar isn’t waiting for the Steelers to make their move.
Patrick Peterson of the Arizona Cardinals wasted little time going on Twitter to express his desire to play alongside Brown.

Arizona will undergo a new regime with Kliff Kingsbury at the helm, and the addition of Brown would certainly help his offense operate smoothly at the next level.
After dealing with another losing season out in Arizona, it’d make sense for the front office to be aggressive and upgrade the team at every position possible.
The Cardinals have David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald to carry most of the offensive production, but they can certainly use another weapon to alleviate the pressure.
