In the new podcast “Steelers Hangout”, Jeff Hartman talks about what the pros, and cons, would be to the Steelers toying with the idea to trade Antonio Brown.

Join me, Jeff Hartman, editor of BTSC, for the first installment of the new, stripped down, offseason Pittsburgh Steelers podcast, "Steelers Hangout".

On this first episode I dive into a topic creating a lot of discussion recently, and that is whether the Steelers should entertain the thought of trading Antonio Brown this offseason. Some scoff at such a notion, but I look at both the pros and cons for such a drastic decision.

(HINT: It may not be as crazy as you think.)

Check out my list, and listen to the podcast above for more details:

PROS:

- Get rid of the off-the-field nonsense

- His eventual price tag will be too high

- His statistics have plateaued

- The potential return could be great

CONS:

- Brown is one of the best WRs in the NFL

- Still producing at a ridiculous rate

- Connection with Ben Roethlisberger will have them contenders for years to come

- Worth every penny of the money he is owed.
