It wouldn’t make a lot of sense for the Raiders to make a trade for Antonio Brown. They traded away top receiver Amari Cooper to rebuild and Khalil Mack because they didn’t want to pay him market value. A trade for Brown would go against both those plans as he is 31 years old and carries a salary over $20 million.
The Steelers are said to be thinking they can get a first round pick for Brown, while Rapoport says other teams are thinking more along the lines of a second round pick or lower.
From @NFLGameDay: The #Steelers are going to get trade offers for Antonio Brown, and rival GMs predict they'll be able to at least get a 2nd rounder. The #Broncos are expected to be one of many teams interested. pic.twitter.com/Hz16So8pwV— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 12, 2019
It seems to me that whether it would be a first round pick or a second rounder would depend on where the interested team is selecting in the draft. If it’s the Colts, Patriots, Saints, Seahawks, Ravens, or Eagles, maybe a first round pick would happen as they all have picks in the bottom part of the first round.
No way would the 49ers or Jets part with a top pick as they pick at 2 and 3 overall of the draft. They would be offering the second round or lower. Likewise for the Broncos who own the 9th overall pick. Same probably goes for the Packers as they pick at 12 overall. Who knows what the Browns would do.
