Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown appears to have decided on his future with the franchise. The All-Pro wideout seems to be ready to move on.

Brown, 30, took to Twitter this afternoon to issue a statement on his status and future with the franchise. The wide receiver thanked Pittsburgh Steelers fans for all of their support.

"Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years," he wrote. "Time to move on and forward........#NewDemands."

That's not an official "Antonio Brown will be playing for a new NFL team in 2019," but it's as close to that as you can get. Brown has been linked to a couple of different NFL teams in recent weeks, but the San Francisco 49ers are the franchise getting the most hype. His Twitter announcement comes hours after he was found guilty of reckless driving. "Antonio Brown found guilty for reckless driving after failing to show up for his court date Tuesday, according to the magistrate’s office. Brown has paid $426.77 in fines. Police cited Brown Nov. 8 for allegedly driving a black Porsche more than 100 MPH through Ross Township, Pa," ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports.

It's unclear what the Steelers would be looking for in an Antonio Brown trade, but the franchise would likely be seeking a good draft pick or two.
