NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the Pittsburgh Steelers have garnered enough interest in the receiver to be able to trade him before March 17, per sources informed of the situation.
Brown is due a $2.5 million roster bonus on March 17, setting a theoretical soft deadline for a potential trade.
The Broncos are an interesting option as John Elway attempts to rework his roster on the fly and get back to the playoffs. Reuniting Emmanuel Sanders with Brown would be intriguing, especially after the two had a brief social media spat this offseason. A trio of Brown, Sanders (when healthy) and Courtland Sutton would provide a huge boost for a struggling Broncos offense.
