  • Antonio Brown (Merged) - now a Raider - just kidding, he's not

    According to Ian Rapoport, Denver will be one of the teams in play for Antonio Brown. Apparently price is a 2nd and possibly a 3rd round pick.

      Plus if we go with a young offensive coordinator, who’s going to keep this guy in check! Who’s going to control the diva attitudes between he and sanders?

      Fangio will be busy with defense, he doesn’t have time to mess around with a couple of little divas!

      Sounds like another Elway move!

            Broncos expected to make a run for Antonio Brown
            The Denver Broncos are apparently one team named that will be pursuing a trade for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown.
            By Tim Lynch on January 12, 2019 11:56 am

            The Denver Broncos are reportedly going to pursue a trade for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown as noted by Ian Rapoport on NFL Game Day on Saturday. The asking price looks like a second-round pick.

            Despite the late season implosion by Brown, he still found a way to snag 104 receptions for 1,297 yards and a whooping NFL-best 15 touchdowns in 2018. He has over 1,200 yards receiving in six-straight seasons with Pittsburgh.

            Emmanuel Sanders commented on Brown’s falling out with the Steelers soon after saying he’d welcome him in Denver with open arms.

            The two pairing in Denver with Courtland Sutton would be interesting in 2019, but could the trade also signal an end of Emmanuel’s tenure in Denver?

            Sanders is working on rehab on an Achille’s injury that he may not even be ready to come back from by Week 1 of the regular season. He could end up being a cap casualty as the Broncos look to move through free agency and trades.

                So far the responses are mostly negative. But one thing that I can not deny, he is a special player, and can break open games. The dude seems to make big plays whenever I watch him. Sure, there is a downside. But if we had a decent QB, and with our run and D game, this type of acquisition would likely be a plus in the short term.

                Heck the dude had his most TDs ever (15) this year, 104 receptions and nearly 1,300 yards in 15 games.

                Another thing....are The Steelers innocent bystanders in all the controversy this year??

                  If we go after him and let’s say grab Flacco, get some interior defense help with the first round pick, could we be a Super Bowl caliber team?

                    I heard about this today. I don't like the guy. Who needs this kind of headache

                    HeMan Sanders already has some comments about it - negative ones

                    It's already a distraction

                    On the other hand ........ as good as Mahommes is- imagine if he didn't have Tyreek Hill

                    Do we keep Sanders? Almost seems like it's one or the other

                      Self preservation by Sanders IMHO. He will be an aging receiver coming off an Achilles injury. Not a good proposition for Denver. Brown and Sutton make this offense better immediately. Sometimes the production is worth the headache. And maybe Fangio won’t be as forgiving as Tomlin. Who knows, but it’s definitely a deal I would explore.

                        Looks like Elway's on a mission again

                        Maybe by bringing in a receiver like that- you can create desire by a QB ....... or other free agents. Get that ball rolling again

                          Pipe dream. Ian was clearly grasping for straws lol.

                            His cap hit for 2019 is 22.165M ... I am not sure all that would have to be on the Broncos, not sure how that works, his contract with restructuring and bonus' looks complicated. At the least the Steelers have pretty good reason to trade that cap hit. Over 21M dead cap too.
                            I don't think it is realistic, even if a lot of the contract doesn't come with him he still has a base of 12.6M.

                              It was somewhat of an afterthought of a report

                              Maybe they had actual words about it with PITT since they're working on Munchak
