Twitter reacts to Antonio Brown's sudden farewell from the Steelers

Antonio Brown

Since Brown is now under contract in Pittsburgh, the only chance of him leaving would be if the team chose to move on through a trade or release, which is why it seems likely the Steelers will look at potential teams expressing interest in the receiver. Although Brown is the best receiver "available" this offseason, he comes with a lot of baggage and he's going to cost a lot in a trade.

Brown's future with the franchise came into question during the final week of the regular season when the star wide receiver didn't show up to practice ahead of a must-win game for the Steelers. Steelers president Art Rooney II said last month he wasn't sure why Brown had turned against the team. The conviction stems from a November 8 incident when Brown was allegedly driving a black Porsche more than 100 miles per hour in Pennsylvania.

Brown has three years remaining on his current deal, with base salaries of $12.6 million, $11.3 million and $12.5 million remaining.

United Kingdom signs post-Brexit trade continuity deal with Switzerland
After talks with Brussels this week Mrs May said that she was determined to deliver Brexit on time ahead of the March 29 deadline. But the request was rebuffed by the European Union which has said it will "not reopen the withdrawal agreement".

A judge found Brown guilty of reckless driving at a hearing Tuesday morning.

Brown, a sixth-round pick in 2010, has become arguably the NFL's best wide receiver in Pittsburgh.

Brown, who is signed through 2021, skipped a walkthrough prior to Week 17 after he got into an incident with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Since then, he has recorded more than 1,000 yards receiving in seven of his nine seasons in the league.
