The Steelers got hoodwinked by Antonio Brown after trade with Raiders - Stephen A. | First Take

Stephen A. Smith is furious with the Pittsburgh Steelers after they agreed to trade Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders for a third and fifth-round pick while taking on $21.1 million in dead money against their salary cap. Max Kellerman suggests that this is how the Steelers operate and they drew a line in the sand to send a message to their players that the franchise will not let this situation happen again.

    Can't have people like Brown and Bell in the locker room. It's a team game. They think they should get the ball even if they're not open, and then cry like a baby when someone does better. That's not being a team player. With Bell if he gets a hang nail he is on the bench. We will be fine with Ju Ju and Conner. They are Steelers.

    If Antonio Brown is the Best Wide receiver of time why is it In 8 years we no Super Bowls out of him. I think the 2017 Pittsburgh Steelers is proof that most talented football teams don't win championships per se.

    Antoni played it perfect he knew his chances of getting a big pay day was decreasing so by going to that interview and saying he doesn’t need football give him leverage...if y’all not gonna pay me what I want I won’t play. So any team who was thinking about getting him for cheap had to rethink there offer cause he might not play cause I doesn’t need to

    WR are overrated and they are divas. Not worth having them on your team. Defense and offense lines, schemes win Superbowls. QB, wr and RBs are all over rated. You can't pay a QB 35 million a year and expect to win Superbowl...same with WR.

    People act like Juju isn’t a #1 WR waiting for his chance, and that James Conner was also a top 5 running back before he got hurt. Steelers will be fine as long as they draft strong this year defensively.

      Love me some Juju, but let's wait and see how he does now being double and triple covered. AB took a lot of that heat off of him. He can definitely be an X-receiver; just not clear if he makes that next step to become a Top 10 wideout.
