Antonio Brown told by Steelers to stop hurting his trade value

Safety Jamal Adams has already begun the recruiting process, which the Jets will be able to officially join in on when Bell becomes a free agent on March 13. Colbert said the transition tag wasn't viable because of the number ($14.5 million) and the fact that Pro Bowl running back James Conner and rookie Jaylen Samuels were productive without Bell last season. Bell ended up sitting out all of last season during a contract dispute and the Steelers finally came to the conclusion that he wasn't worth the tag.

Leading up to Colbert's announcement, the value of a transition tag for Bell and how the Steelers might apply it were up for debate. Bell and the NFLPA would likely argue that the transition tag is close to $14.5 million based on the escalating value of tags, and the Steelers and the National Football League would say it's closer to $9.5 million because Bell sat out.

The overall perception is that wide receiver Antonio Brown has been hurting his trade value with his antics since the end of this past season.

Canadian minister quits as political crisis deepens for Trudeau
In her resignation letter she alludes to the controversy and said she is looking to determine what she can and can't say about it. Many were puzzled by the fact that the Prime Minister never clearly explained what she had done to deserve the demotion.

"Had a great meeting with Mr.Rooney today we discussed a lot of things and we cleared the air on several issues!" Still, he said Brown conceivably could return to Pittsburgh if there is "no trade that does not benefit the team".

Colbert said the Steelers are now open to trading Brown if it makes sense for the team.

After meeting with team president Art Rooney II on Tuesday, Brown announced on Twitter that both sides had made a decision to part ways. But Wednesday, his colleague Tom Pelissero said Brown probably would net the Steelers only a mid-round pick after months of drama.
