Jets, Cardinals out of Antonio Brown sweepstakes, three new teams in

Brown has six consecutive 100-catch seasons but fell out of favor in Pittsburgh at the end of last season.

According to NFL Media , which also cited unidentified sources, the Steelers have begun telling teams that they are moving quickly and to get their best offers in as soon as possible.

Among several issues raised by Brown, he took issue with the way the team handled his benching for the final week of the regular season. But after the 49ers made it clear they weren't interested, it was the Arizona Cardinals who jumped into the conversation as a potential landing spot for Brown during the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. 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. "Big Chest is a good friend of mine, but I don't think he's going about it the right way, personally", Fitzgerald said, according to Sporting News.

As Rapoport mentioned, the Raiders have three first-round picks in this year's draft.

Here's what we know: Antonio Brown isn't long for the Steelers. That is even truer when you consider the need the Raiders have on the roster for a dynamic receiver.

Additionally, ESPN reports that Pittsburgh views the New England Patriots as a "no-trade zone".

Antonio Brown #84 of the Pittsburgh Steelers reacts after a 33 yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter during the game against the Green Bay Packers at Heinz Field on November 26, 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

That the Steelers have informed fellow clubs to rush with their best offers suggests the team might already have an acceptable offer, NFL Network said.

National Football League trades can't become official until March 13, but deals will certainly be agreed upon well before then.
