News broke moments ago via NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that the Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills were nearing a trade involving Antonio Brown. It looks like the star wide receiver is headed to Buffalo.
The deal isn’t official yet, but progress is reportedly being made. Bills fans figure to be excited about their new offensive weapon. Second-year quarterback Josh Allen should be even happier.
Brown, on the other hand, doesn’t appear to be feeling it. Perhaps that’s because he doesn’t even want to acknowledge the trade being real.
Brown commented on the NFL’s official Instagram post about the trade. He’s not buying it.
“Fake news,” he wrote.

Well, we will find out soon enough if the news is real or not. Rapoport is a trusted reporter, so we can’t imagine he’d get this wrong.
Sounds like AB is going to have to trade in his Primanti’s for some wings from Duff’s or beef on weck.
On paper, the trade would give Buffalo the star receiver it has so desperately been lacking, but there is some risk involved. After all, if Brown didn’t like the way Ben Roethlisberger played quarterback, he might be in for a rude awakening with the physically gifted but inconsistent Allen.
