Late last night, rumors started flying that the Steelers and the Bills were in discussions to send the disgruntled All Pro receiver to Buffalo.
Sources: The #Steelers are closing in on a deal to send star WR Antonio Brown to the Buffalo #Bills. There it is.
That tweet caused all hell to break loose, with fans going crazy over the news. But then AB jumped into the mix, letting everyone know the deal:
AB says it’s fake news 👀
As we get closer to the NFL Draft, rumors surrounding Antonio Brown continue to fly, but nothing serious has emerged. Suitors from the Raiders and 49ers to the Titans and Bills have all been included in the debate, but no one has pulled the trigger as of yet. Earlier this morning, the rumblings of AB to the Bills were squashed and the team issued their own statement on their discussion with the Steelers.
A statement from GM Brandon Beane.
But that didn’t stop the geniuses of Twitter from chiming in and having a field day with this latest development.

So for now, the Antonio Brown saga continues on. While some Steelers fans hold on to the slim hopes that the relationship between their team and star player will be healed, it’s looking more like AB will be suiting up for another team next season. The only questions that remain are what team will he play for and what will the Steelers receive in return.
In the meantime, we’ll enjoy the brilliance of Twitter as it continues to react to every AB rumor.
