Throughout the tumultuous offseason for the Pittsburgh Steelers, there has been a strong silence from All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown. While former and current teammates, Mike Tomlin, Art Rooney II and anyone else with a microphone chime in on the situation between Brown and the organization, Brown has remained silent.

That is, until now...

On Tuesday, Brown posted this video on multiple social media platforms with a simple message to Steelers Fans:

If you can’t see the tweet above, you can click HERE, but here is the caption to the video:

“Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years...time to move on and forward.... #NewDemands”

This is the first time Brown has made a social media post, or answered a question, which doesn’t seem cryptic, but rather straight forward. If it didn’t seem obvious the two parties were doomed for divorce, it seems like just a matter of time until the two part ways for good.

The question at this point isn’t whether Brown will be back in a black-and-gold uniform next year, but what will the Steelers get in return for the talented wide receiver?

This story is just getting started, so stay tuned to BTSC as the offers, and eventual trade, take place between the team who took a flyer on Brown in the 6th round, and Brown’s new home.
