Antonio Brown officially wants out of Pittsburgh.
The Steelers star wide receiver tweeted a video of his highlights Tuesday afternoon and wrote, “Thank you SteelerNation for a big [nine] years … time to move on and forward … [peace emoji] #NewDemands.”

In case that wasn’t clear enough to everybody he was demanding a trade, multiple people have reported that he officially asked the team to be dealt away.
Antonio Brown has not been traded nor has he been released. But Brown wants a trade and he officially has requested that from the Steelers, per source.

What does the Antonio Brown song mean? Not much new. The #Steelers WR has requested a trade and would like a fresh start, source said, but the team has not yet granted that request.

Well, there you have it, folks. It really doesn’t get much clearer than that. Remember earlier today when I said Brown would probably back in the news before the end of the day after his driving reckless charge? (RELATED: Antonio Brown Might Only Be Worth A Sixth Round Pick In A Potential Trade)
Yeah, props to me. I think I called that one correctly.
I also can’t get over how addicted to attention this dude is. He couldn’t just request a trade officially behind closed doors? He had to drop a highlight tape on Twitter? Give me a break.
Antonio Brown is seemingly going out of his way to be the biggest headache possible for everybody involved, which might explain why his trade value isn’t exactly a ton.

I would be so happy to see him leave if I was cheering for Pittsburgh. I’m a Lions fan, and I want this saga to just end.
The good people of Pittsburgh don’t deserve to get jerked around like this. Unbelievable on all fronts. I’m sure the fans will be saying good riddance soon enough.
