Why Antonio Brown's Trade to the Bills Fell Through

Recommended Posts

The Steelers have an Antonio Brown problem. And it’s a different problem than the one that they had in December.

 

Brown may not want to go to Buffalo, but there’s more to it than the locale. Another team involved in trade discussions earlier in the week, I’m told, walked because it was communicated to them that Brown wanted, again, to be the NFL’s highest-paid receiver under a new contract. My understanding is money was a factor for the Bills, too.

 

How the Bills’ talks went down help to illustrate that. Buffalo first inquired about Brown on Tuesday, and talks went in a positive direction between the two teams from there. Positive enough, in fact, that the Bills got permission to discuss the deal with Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus.

 

By early Friday morning, things had come undone. How? Two things had to come together for a deal to be done: the trade comp had to be agreed to—and I’m told the sides were in the ballpark on that—and the team acquiring the player has to make sure everything’s right with the player (a process that would eventually, for example, include a physical), and it wasn’t.

 

The Bills could have offered Brown more than Odell Beckham Jr. is getting in New York, as the NFL’s most richly compensated receiver, and maybe that would’ve convinced Brown to play there. They didn’t offer that, and the deal is now dead.

NFL players who won’t play unless they’re the highest paid at their positions can go fuck themselves.

I'm not sure if anyone posted the meme Brown posted after signing with the Raiders. He gave the Bills a stiff arm and quoted President Trump!

(actually, Trump could have done a similar meme when he ended up shunning the Bills for the going rate)

Here is the answer.

 

Drew, his agent, didn't even respond to the Bills with an asking price. Bills were iced out by the agent.

 

Then when Drew mentioned to AB that the Bills were asking, AB said "oh yeah, forget them" and both AB and Drew moved on to their other choices.

 

The Bills never got out of the dugout. In the long run, probably we wouldn't have given him what he would have been asking anyhow.


Draft a Running Back in the 2nd?  Add another EDGE or Corner?

I'm not sure if anyone posted this(I have to put that disclaimer to attempt to avoid getting mocked being it didnt happen yesterday). Beane shutting down #fakenews!

Orchard Park, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane had to take a moment to collect himself before he answered a question Thursday about the perception that players don’t want to come to Buffalo after it was rumored that Antonio Brown nixed a trade because of the city he’d have to play in.

 

Beane said the narrative that sprung up “pissed me off.”

 

“It was ignorant,” Beane said. “Don’t speak about Buffalo if you don’t know what this city and what this fan base is like. It really pissed me off because it’s not true.”

 

 

“Don’t speak about Buffalo unless you know what this city and this fan base is like.” #BillsMafia #Buffalo

 

 

Beane said that when he talks to players the negative stigma about Buffalo doesn’t come up. The team just signed seven free agents that hit the open market and he said that all of them have been commenting about the amazing city, organization and people in Buffalo.

 

“We didn’t have that narrative. It all started with a bad rumor on the Antonio Brown thing,” Beane said. “People looking for a reason and they didn’t have all the facts.”

 

The Bills signed arguably the top center on the market in former Kansas City standout Mitch Morse. He said that he was thrilled when he found out that Buffalo was interested and the perception that players don’t want to come to Buffalo was news to him.

 

“That’s gotta tick you off a bit, doesn’t it?” Morse pondered when he was asked if the negative stigma about the city that Buffalonians battle routinely on social media was on his radar. “I was extremely excited when I heard that Buffalo was in the mix. I was just looking forward to being a part of a team that really cares about the players. It’s gotta be frustrating for you all because I’ve been here 24 hours and it’s a fantastic town and I’m looking forward to making it my home for quite some time.”

 

Beane inquired about a trade for disgruntled former Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown after he demanded a trade in a messy breakup after nine seasons. Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus said to Peter King on his podcast that they never had to discuss Buffalo as an option because the Bills pulled out of negotiations before a deal was struck.

 

Brown commented on an Instagram post from the NFL account breaking the news that Brown was going to be traded to the Bills with two simple words, “fake news.” Many people interpreted that as Brown not wanting to play in Buffalo.

 

A few hours after Beane released a statement admitting the Bills did engage the Steelers in trade talks before realizing it wasn’t going to be a fit on either end, Brown was dealt to the Oakland Raiders.

Fuck Antonio Brown.

 

Kind of a shame we don't play the Raiders this season. Some of the fellas on defense might get a bit more amped than usual after that slap in the face. I can imagine Bills fans would love to see AB laid out.
