    He would be a lethal force on the Pats

    There is no way the Steelers trade Brown to the Pats, plain and simple, its not happening!

    More likely than not they will find a NFC West team to send him to.

    It won't be 21m, he's a lot cheaper than people expect to be.

    you nailed it. I would go one further, and say your point is why Route 1 can't draft WRs. I am willing to bet that BB eliminates half of them because of your point.

    Wasn't there a running back we picked up a few years back from the Steelers who left a game before it was over?

    His cap hit is 22.5 million if they keep him and 21.5 million if they release or trade him. For the 1M difference he's a Steeler next year.

    Once the Pats put up 10 points against the Ravens at home you all are gonna wish AB could be a Patriot. Who the heck creates that kind of separation on this team? Hint nobody.

    At these #s id take him in a heart beat. Hes shown zero signs of slowing down so 3 productive years is likely. His durability despite the workload hes had is impressive. people have criticized his attitude and i wont dispute that risk but everyone seems to admire his work ethic. Wr who can create seperation is a need for us and we are bad at drafting wrs.

    Pitt will never trade him to us though

    Still quite a bit for his age. And we weren’t willing to go to that price with a 25 yr old cooks.

    As with Trey Flowers, I haven't looked at any other teams roster-versus-cap situations in detail. However, just based on raw cap space:

    Colts
    Jets
    Bills
    Browns
    Raiders
    Texans

    If the Steelers don't want to trade him in the AFC, then:

    Niners
    Cards
    Seahawks
    Packers (maybe)

    Below that, and you have to start looking closely at cap space versus players under contract. For example, the Skins have only about $23M in cap space, but they have 57 players under contract for 2019 already. OTOH, the Lions have about $34M in cap space, but only 45 players under contract.

    Even if the Patriots were to make a good offer, the Steelers would probably not want him to land in New England.

    I could see them making a deal with the Raiders.
