The never-ending drama involving Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers continues to dominate the headlines this NFL offseason. While trades can’t become official until next month, it’s inevitable that he’ll be on his way out of the AFC North.
Brown hasn’t taken the conventional approach to his trade demands, especially considering that he publicly criticized Ben Roethlisberger, Mike Tomlin and ownership. Nonetheless, the superstar wideout is too talented to not have potential suitors bidding for his services.
Well, it appears his requests have now changed over the past few days. In an effort to make his voice be heard all over the football world, the charismatic pass-catcher went on Instagram to talk about his future during a workout.
In a surprising change from his recent comments, Brown discussed another factor that will be on his mind this offseason.
Not only does the All-Pro want to go somewhere that he can build new relationships, but he also wants guaranteed money from his next team.
His last demand was undoubtedly the most peculiar, as Brown announced that he wants to be known by the name of “Mr. Big Chest.”
On Instagram Live, Antonio Brown said:
*”If your team got guaranteed money, they want to get to know me and work with me, tell them to call me.”
*He now wants to be known not as “A.B.” but as “Mr. Big Chest.”

After posting 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns with the Steelers in 2o18, it’s hard to deny that Brown is still an elite playmaker in the league.
However, the constant bickering from Pittsburgh and its wide receiver has produced one of the most head-scratching breakups in the history of the NFL.
