Team president Art Rooney II told reporters last month that something changed with Brown the last week of the season and he wasn't sure why.

The superstar wide receiver said goodbye to the franchise on Twitter on Tuesday, and ESPN soon reported he has requested a trade. And as ESPN's Field Yates notes, Brown comes with a very hefty contract that also would cost the Steelers a pretty penny if they moved him.

The report surfaced soon after Brown tweeted a video with a caption that thanked Steeler Nation and stated it's "time to move on".

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani out of Manchester United match
United made a loss when they sold Di Maria for 63 million euros (£44.3 million at the time ), but it was very much PSG's gain. He played 27 league games during his solitary season at Old Trafford, scoring three goals.

Brown, 30, has been the subject of widespread trade speculation after he failed to show up to work the day before the season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals. Some were sad to see Brown leave the team, others were happy to see the controversial player head to greener pastures and then there were the fans who pointed out how absurd the whole announcement was.

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

Former NFL safety Gerald Alexander commented on how Brown's situation reflects the issue of age within the league, saying that the arrival of 22-year-old receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster in 2017 has made Brown "expendable". 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 would help the offense, but unless he is willing to sign a new contract with a lower cap hit, his play alone won't make up for all the holes the team won't be able to fill if they commit so much money to the receiver.
