Antonio Brown tweets goodbye to Steelers amid reports of trade request


Antonio Brown's time in Pittsburgh appears to be up.

The Steelers wide receiver tweeted goodbye to the franchise on Tuesday, as a move away from the six-time Super Bowl champions seemingly edges closer.

"Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years...time to move on and forward.......... #NewDemands" Brown posted.

Brown's message was published amid widespread reports that he has asked the Steelers to be traded.

Brown's future has been the subject of speculation since before the end of the regular season.

He missed the Steelers' final week of practice and sat out the team's finale against the Cincinnati Bengals amid an alleged feud with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

The Steelers drafted Brown in the sixth round in 2010 and his time in Pittsburgh has yielded seven Pro-Bowl selections as well as 837 receptions for 11,207 yards with 74 touchdowns.
