How would Bills fans feel about trading for Antonio Brown?

New, comments

The nine-year veteran still has three years left on his contract

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Over the past six years, Antonio Brown has put up the most impressive stretch of numbers by a wide receiver in NFL history. During all six of those seasons, Brown has had over 100 catches and over 1,000 yards. If you were the Buffalo Bills, would you trade for Antonio Brown?

Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers have not gotten along during the past year and he has officially requested a trade from the franchise. In 2019—the tenth year of his career—Brown will turn 31. With three years left on his lucrative deal, Brown is going to be one of the highest-paid players on any team’s roster.

2019 base salary: $12.6 million
2020 base salary: $11.3 million
2021 base salary: $12.5 million

Although Brown is getting older, his recent stretch of production will allow the Steelers to ask for large return. A first-round pick is likely what the Steelers would ask for and out of the 31 other NFL teams, at least one is going to offer just that.

Assuming the Bills were to give up the 9th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, would you want to give that up for Antonio Brown?
