Antonio Brown Tweets Goodbye to Pittsburgh and Asks Steelers for Trade

Antonio Brown #84 of the Pittsburgh Steelers reacts after making a catch in the second half against the New York Jets during the game on September 16, 2012 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. But Brown wants a trade and he officially has requested that from the Steelers, per source. Brown wrote. "Time to move on and move forward".

Brown's future has been the subject of speculation since before the end of the regular season. Brown was charged in November for driving his black sports vehicle over 100 miles per hour in a 45 miles per hour zone.

Brown did not show up for the trial and was found guilty in absence.

According to Steelers president Art Rooney II, the Steelers still didn't hear from Brown in the weeks following that Week 17 contest.

He finished the season with 104 receptions for 1,294 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Beyond the reckless driving charge, a lawsuit filed in October alleged that Brown hurled several large pieces of furniture off the 14th-floor balcony of his Florida apartment during an April outburst.

Some might have imagined the Patriots would steer clear of Brown trade anyway, especially considering the likely high asking price and the 30-year-old's propensity for causing headaches. If Brown is on the roster beyond five days from the start of the new season, he will receive a $2.5 million bonus.

Brown appeared to make his decision official in a social media post released on Instagram on Tuesday.

With over $107 million in cap space right now, the Colts can add literally anyone they want to via free agency (or a trade).
