The Pittsburgh Steelers' Antonio Brown saga has reached a new level today, with the star wide receiver taking a meeting with the franchise's owner.

"Had a great meeting with Mr.Rooney today we discussed a lot of things and we cleared the air on several issues! We both agreed that it is time to move on but I’ll always have appreciation and gratitude towards the Rooney family and @steelers organization!" Brown shared.

The Steelers have reportedly agreed to trade Brown, though they aren't letting him talk to other NFL teams.

Pittsburgh has reportedly not wavered in their trade requests for Brown. The Steelers want a good draft pick back.


Sources have maintained that the Steelers will be patient with any deal and will want a high draft pick in return for Brown, who holds an NFL-record six consecutive 100-catch seasons.

Brown, meanwhile, had a message for NFL teams:

"I think I done done everything. What y'all think? What's left for me to do?" Brown said this morning. "Win a Super Bowl? Hey, gotta be the right team for that, right? Who wants smoke? I've got a lot of fuel built up. When this fuel turns to smoke, hope you're in shape, hope you're ready to go the distance. I'm telling you, I'm ready to go 36 rounds, like a heavyweight, ya heard. ...

"If your team got guaranteed money, tell them call me. AB can't do no more unguarantees. So we clear. I want ya'll to be clear and understand something. This is not a game, people. This is not for show; this is not to be cool. This is strictly to inspire you that no one can determine your destination but you."

Stay tuned.
