Rooney: 'Hard to envision' Brown at Steelers camp

Steelers president says all options on table with WR Antonio Brown

Brown's $2.5 million roster bonus due March 17 would incentivize the Steelers to deal him.

According to league regulations, nothing can be done with Brown until March 13, the first day of the league's new year.

Rooney added he will talk to other players to see how they feel, but it would be "hard to envision" Brown still with the Steelers when they report to training camp in July. Brown has reportedly refused calls from Rooney and head coach Mike Tomlin.

According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin wants to add to his staff, bringing another full-time assistant beyond the staff he carried a year ago.

The Steelers would absorb $21.12 million in 2019 dead money on the salary cap by trading Brown, but taking his $22.165-million cap charge off the books would offset that cost.

Bill de Blasio unveils plan for universal health care
De Blasio said the plan will offer public health insurance on a sliding price scale that is based on income. And because more people will get preventive care, the city might actually save money, he added .

The Steelers now have two months to figure it all out.

The Post-Gazette reports the team president says "all other options are on the table". "So, there's no reason why they have to hurry and make a decision right now, which would be a decision made out of weakness and made out of vulnerability". But to have the entire situation turn into a potential trade scenario and possibly seeing Brown in a different uniform in 2019 is shocking. He also indicated that the issues with Brown at the end of the season are likely part of a broader problem.

Within a few hours after the newspaper posted Rooney's comments, Brown tweeted a photo of himself and Rooney shaking hands, with the caption, "Good Business #Boomin".

Brown ranks second in Steelers history behind Hines Ward in career receptions (837), receiving yards (11,207) and touchdown catches (74).
