Source: Antonio Brown asks Steelers for trade

Antonio Brown has officially requested a trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter Tuesday.

The news of Brown’s trade request comes right after the star wide receiver tweeted a farewell to the Steelers and their fans, saying it is “time to move on and forward.”

Brown, 30, has been the subject of widespread trade speculation after he failed to show up to work the day before the season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals.

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. He had reached out to Brown to no avail.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN on Jan. 25 he has spoken to the Steelers to express Brown’s “position” but wouldn’t divulge details.
