Antonio Brown’s days with the Pittsburgh Steelers continue to look like they’ll likely be over soon.

According to a Saturday report from Ian Rapoport, the Steelers are actively listening to offers for the talented receiver. Rapoport said NFL GMs have told him that Brown is likely not worth a first round pick, but could be worth a second and a third packaged together.

Honestly, I wouldn’t even give up a second and a third round pick for Brown at this point. His value plummeted in my eyes after he skipped practices and the final game of the year.

He’s paid to catch footballs and to suit up. I don’t care if he has beefs in the locker room. He’s not paid to complain. He’s paid to win, and that didn’t happen. (RELATED: Pittsburgh Steelers Will ‘Listen’ To Trade Offers For Antonio Brown)

Would I give up a day three pick? Sure, but there’s no chance in hell I’d part with a second and third rounder for a guy that we know can be a serious problem.

Now, will most teams take my advice? Probably not, and they’ll come to regret that decision. Superstar players in the NFL don’t exactly grow on trees, and there’s no question Brown is among the best in the sport.

Does he have his issues? Absolutely, but that doesn’t mean he can’t play with the best of them. There’s going to almost certainly be a team willing to pay a high price for his services.
