After weeks of back and forth through the press and social media, Antonio Brown has met with Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II. We discussed a lot of things and we cleared the air on several issues!

More interestingly it appears Rooney agreed it's time for Brown and the Steelers to move on and, obviously, part ways this offseason.

Confirming what already seemed like an inevitability, Antonio Brown has taken to social media to reiterate that an upcoming trade from the Steelers is all but imminent.

"If your squad want to win and your squad want a hungry wide receiver who's the best in the whole world, someone hit my phone", Brown said in a nine-minute video that can be viewed below.

Brown still has three years remaining on the $72 million contract he signed in the spring of 2017, and remains one of the most dynamic performers in the league. I'm telling you, I'm ready to go 36 rounds, like a heavyweight, ya heard.

"I think I done done everything".

Brown also had another request: He no longer wants to be known as "A.B." but instead would like to be referred to as "Mr". "We hope they get a great amount of compensation".

Sources have maintained the Steelers will be patient with any deal and will want a high draft pick in return for Brown, who holds an NFL-record six consecutive 100-catch seasons. The team sent him home with an apparent leg injury on the Friday before the game and he failed to provide coach Mike Tomlin with an update until Sunday morning, when his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, let Tomlin know that Brown was available to play.
