Moving on from Brown will come at a price for the Steelers and some risk for the team that trades for him. Brown appeared to say "goodbye" to local fans in a tweet on Tuesday: 'Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years.time to move on and forward'.
According to Schefter, a source close to Brown believes the receiver is exhausted of playing the scapegoat for the Steelers' problems and wants to show he can thrive in another offense.
Brown, 30, attached a video of highlights from his time with the Steelers with Lil Uzi Vert's "Now I Do What I Want" playing.
Brown's future has been the subject of speculation since before the end of the regular season. Pittsburgh won the game with Brown watching on the sidelines, but missed the playoffs.More news: See Klobuchar launch 2020 presidential bid in most Minnesota way imaginable

This whole situation will turn out to be little more than a fine for Brown after he was found guilty.
Fitting Brown under the salary cap, if he were to stay on his current deal, would be possible for the Eagles.
On Tuesday, Brown basically ended his career in the Steel City, and he bid farewell to the organization on Twitter. He's coming off a 2018 season in which he totaled 104 catches for 1,297 yards with an NFL-high 15 receiving touchdowns.
If Brown does hit the trade market, it will be interesting to see what kind of interest there is.
