New reports shoot down Antonio Brown to Bills trade

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday night the two sides were closing a deal, but said Friday it collapsed because Brown would not commit to showing up in Buffalo. Brown was quick to characterize the story as "fake news" on social media.

Brown reportedly made his first trade request in January, right after the Steelers' season ended.

"We inquired about Antonio Brown on Tuesday, and kept talks open with the Steelers", Beane said.

Obviously, the Bills still have to find a way to improve their offence which was a disaster last season.

The Raiders had appeared to be the team most interested in Brown, while several other squads, such as the Broncos, Cardinals, Eagles, Jets, Redskins, Saints and Titans were reported in recent days to be disinclined to bid for him.

With free agency starting next week, perhaps the drama surrounding Brown will quiet down.

There are also additional contract concerns with adding Brown, who likely wants to rip up his old deal and create a new one with his new team.

Brown is set to make $12,625 million in base salary as part of a four-year, $68 million deal he signed in 2017 and still has $39 million of his deal.
