AB’s days in Pittsburgh should soon be coming to an end after a meeting with team owner Art Rooney II that concluded with the Steelers agreeing to trade him.

Having shared his feelings about needing guaranteed money on Monday night, Antonio Brown finally sat down with the man who had once made him the highest paid receiver in football on Tuesday morning, sharing a photograph of his meeting with Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II via social media.

However, for those hoping that this sit down would result in some sort of resolution that ended with AB staying in Pittsburgh, the captioned the wide receiver attached to the image quickly killed off that notion.

As per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the meeting also included Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus, Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert and Vice President of Football & Business Administration Omar Kahn. Schefter also confirmed that both sides had agreed a trade was in everyone’s best interests.

Albert Breer of the MMQB also had some more insights to share about who was there and what was said.

One of the more interesting parts of this recent revelation seems to be Pittsburgh’s refusal to allow Brown and his agent to speak with other teams themselves. A point also confirmed by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The Steelers insistence at controlling where AB goes at this stage should be a clear sign to the wide receiver that Pittsburgh’s interests will come before any destination he might have in mind.

As more information about the meeting becomes available we will be sure to update this post.
