A source close to Brown believes the wideout is exhausted of playing the scapegoat for the Steelers' problems and wants to show he can thrive in another offense. The Steelers could decide they aren't going to move him. However, his contract makes it unlikely that Brown would be traded.

Getting him from the Steelers, however, could be hard for top personnel executive Howie Roseman. Brown is under contract for another three years and the Steelers reportedly would want at least a first-round pick and several other selections for the receiver. The Steelers would have to eat $21 million in dead money to trade Brown, but if they are open to it, that dead money won't impact his new team. On Tuesday, he was found guilty of reckless driving after failing to show up in court, ESPN reported. Although they are now $11 million under the salary cap after quarterback Nick Foles bought his way back into free agency last week and is no longer under contract.

While many teams would like Brown to be their top wideout in 2019, the Raiders are actually seen as a favorite to get him.

It's the latest in a headline-producing few months for Brown, on and off the field. Brown will be 31-years old when the 2019 National Football League season kicks off, putting him right in Gruden's wheelhouse, but the Raiders should stay away from using such draft assets on an aging wide receiver this time around.
