NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that after intense talks that went into last night, and almost agreeing on trade compensation, the Bills say they are out on a Brown trade, per a source informed of the situation.
"We inquired about Antonio Brown on Tuesday, and kept talks open with the Steelers," Bills GM Brandon Beane said in a statement. "We had positive discussions, but ultimately it didn't make sense for either side. As great a player as Antonio Brown is, we have moved on and our focus is on free agency."
Questions about Brown's fit in Buffalo were fired off as soon as the first hint of the possibility became known. Would Brown play for a team perceived to be rebuilding? Would he fit with a growing, strong-armed, but still largely inaccurate Josh Allen? Would Mr. Big Chest demand a hearty raise to play in Western New York?
These questions will be left floating into the starry abyss.
