Antonio Brown traded to Raiders late Saturday night

Pro Football Talk reports the Raiders have acquired Antonio Brown from the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

There’s no word yet on what Pittsburgh is getting in return, but Brown does appear to be getting a new contract because of the trade. PFT adds his new contract over the next three years will increase from $38 million in total value to over $50 million. Brown’s guaranteed money will increase from $0 to over $30 million. It appears the star wideout has won his disputes with Pittsburgh, though it’s tough to imagine his fantasy value increasing sans Rosethlisberger.

Antonio Brown "most closely linked" with Eagles, Raiders

Jason La Canfora reports Antonio Brown has been "most closely linked" with the Raiders and Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

La Canfora adds several teams believe a deal with the Raiders would be done already if not for contractual hold ups. Not only is Brown looking to be traded right now, but he is looking for a new contract as well. The star wideout wants to be the highest paid receiver in football. A trade looked imminent with the Bills this past week, but for now this saga continues on.

Antonio Brown: Bills now out of sweepstakes for star wideout

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Bills are now out of the running for star wideout Antonio Brown.

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport adds the Bills and Steelers were engaged in intense talks last night but were ultimately unable to settle on trade compensation. Adam Schefter of ESPN also reported the deal is no longer happening. The Steelers said earlier this week they wanted the Brown saga to be wrapped up by Friday, but that could be tough if they still don't have a trade partner. A trade to Buffalo certainly would've hurt Brown's fantasy value next year.

Antonio Brown close to being traded to Bills

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills are closing in on a trade that will send wide receiver Antonio Browns to the Bills, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport. The deal is not complete at this time but appears imminent.

Fantasy Impact

Earlier in the week, it was reported that the Steelers were hoping to wrap up a trade of Brown by the end of the week and were asking teams for their final offers. It appears that the Bills, who have a significant amount of salary cap room available as part of their current rebuilding process, have stepped up with the best offer. Terms of the deal have not yet been revealed, and Rapoport's report indicates that, while the teams are closing in on a deal, nothing is official at this moment.

Antonio Brown could be on the move soon as Steelers ask for final offers

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown could be on the move soon, as NFL insider Ian Rapoport is reporting that the trade talks for him are heating up. Pittsburgh is reportedly asking teams for their final offers, and the thinking is that a deal could now happen sooner rather than later. Rapoport adds that three teams have jumped into the talks in the last 48 hours while the New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals appear to be out.

Fantasy Impact

Brown has been a topic of trade rumors for months, and with a roster bonus due to him in a couple of weeks and free agency starting soon, it is no surprise that a deal is on the horizon. It is not yet known who the frontrunners are in any deal, but more information should become available in the next day or so.
