Report: Saints back out of Antonio Brown sweepstakes

The Bills were among the teams interested, but GM Brandon Beane says the deal "didn't make sense for either side". The NFL reported the story at the wee hours of Friday morning but AB quickly shot down the idea, calling it "fake news".

Rapoport then tweeted that the deal isn't official, but doubled-down that it's on it's way to happening.

Brown wanting a trade out of Pittsburgh is one thing, but it appears that he also has a shortlist of destinations.

LeBron had MJ in mind on the night he surpassed the star and wrote a message to Jordan on his shoes. Kobe Bryant now sits in third place at 33,643; Karl Malone (36,928) is second.

Brown may not want to go to Buffalo, but there's more to it than the locale.

This stems from a report from the NFL Network National Insider Ian Rapoport. "As great a player as Antonio Brown is, we have moved on and our focus is on free agency".

Obviously, the Bills still have to find a way to improve their offence which was a disaster last season. Quarterback Josh Allen had an up-and-down season in 2018 and the future looks bright, but there are still plenty of question marks.

In a statement to Fox News on Thursday, a spokesperson for the force confirmed that "an internal investigation has been opened". While the odds are seemingly stacked against Smollett, Latifah isn't the only star who has rallied their support for the actor.

It remains possible that some team will gravitate too close to Brown's still-elite talent to resist him.

Even if the team does pass on Brown, there's still a number of other free agent wide receivers on the marker, as well as promising prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft.

As a reminder, Brown will leave a massive amount of dead money on the Steelers' salary cap after he signed a four-year, $68 million contract last year.
