Brown took to social media to bid farewell to the Steelers fans, saying: "Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years.time to move on and forward".

Team president Art Rooney II told reporters last month that something changed with Brown the last week of the season and he wasn't sure why.

Antonio Brown, arguably the most dominant wide receiver in the National Football League over the past decade, has stated his desire to leave the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pittsburgh won the game with Brown watching on the sidelines, but missed the playoffs.

More than 1 million Uighurs are believed to have been held in "re-education camps", where they face psychological indoctrination in questionable conditions.

The disgruntled Pro Bowl receiver, who was found guilty for reckless driving Tuesday morning after failing to show up to court, tweeted that he is moving on. He paid a $426.77 fine. Brown has recorded at least 1,200 receiving yards and nine touchdowns in each of those campaigns, with a 1,698-yard, 13-touchdown season in 2014 marking career-highs in both categories. He was allegedly driving a black Porsche more than 100 miles per hour through Ross Township, Pa. He has since filed for custody of his daughter in the wake of the alleged incident.

Antonio Brown has not been traded nor has he been released. After everything Carson Wentz just went through regarding reports of him being selfish, it would be interesting to see if the Eagles would be prepared to deal with the off and on-field drama Brown could bring when unhappy. Pittsburgh would have to eat $21 million in dead money to trade Brown, and they seem open to it.
