Antonio Brown is still a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, despite reports overnight that he’d been traded to the Buffalo Bills. Friday afternoon, Brown took to Instagram Live to spark even more speculation.
In the clip, which you can view on his Instagram page (you can’t embed Instagram Live videos), Brown is seen working on with some of his buddies. He reportedly tells his viewers that he’s got a “big announcement” coming – most likely in the next 24 hours.
At one point, while Brown is bench pressing, one of his friends jokes that he’s “got the black and grey on already.” Of course, that has led to speculation that he’s headed to play for the Oakland Raiders.
It’s very possible that this is just Brown and his friends adding fuel to the fire for fun. But it’s 2019, so anything is possible. It’s entirely plausible that this is how we learn where Brown winds up headed.
antonio brown just went on IG Live from the gym and said
– he might be “somewhere in less than 24 hours”
– "big announcement coming soon. big announcement coming soon, mr. big chest.”
also, one of the dudes at the gym said “got your black and gray on already.” OK then.

Brown, despite putting together another incredible year, had a falling out with Steelers management and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. A few weeks back, he demanded a trade.
The Raiders have been rumored to be interested in Brown since he requested a trade. It remains to be seen if they’ll actually land him.
