Raiders 'intrigued' by Steelers WR Antonio Brown

It took a while for the Pittsburgh Steelers to get a market going for Antonio Brown, but it appears they're ready to deal. Three new teams have jumped into the mix of late, while the Jets and Cardinals are out of the competition. Not surprisingly, their reported interest was shot down within hours of being linked to a potential trade for Brown.

As mentioned before, reports have already claimed that Philadelphia has no interest in bringing Brown on board, and they now aren't listed as one of the potential landing spots. That report mirrored what 9News Denver reported last week, with sources close to Broncos general manager John Elway saying the team had not been involved in Brown trade talks. Listen to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport on Tuesday morning and if the Raiders have to give up more than a second-round pick for Brown, it'll be a surprise.

ESPN's Adam Schefter had previously mentioned the Tennessee Titans and Washington Redskins, in addition to Oakland, among the top suitors for Brown.

The Antonio Brown sweepstakes are nearly over, and the victor could already be decided.

Gaydos Jr started playing the guitar aged three, scoring the lead role in School of Rock for director Richard Linklater aged 10. Police are also accusing Gaydos of trying to sell some of the guitars at pawn shops.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci later tweeted that sources told him the Bills inquired about Brown but that no deal was imminent and that a trade between the clubs was unlikely.

Over the course of a couple months, Brown has been at odds with the Steelers organization and Ben Roethlisberger.

Any trade that is agreed upon can't be officially announced until next Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, when the 2019 league year begins.

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. ESPN pegged the number of interested teams at six or seven. In 15 games last season, he had 104 catches for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns.
