Ian Rapoport said this morning that the Raiders seem to be the team to watch in the Antonio Brown “sweepstakes:”
From @gmfb: As trade talks continue for #Steelers WR Antonio Brown, the interest is real. And while there are others talking with Pittsburgh, the #Raiders are one team continually staying in the mix. pic.twitter.com/qwvOnjDuKo— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 5, 2019
While I have gone back and forth on how I feel about the Titans acquiring Brown, I have been pretty steadfast on the fact that they shouldn’t give up their first round pick to get him. The Raiders have 3 first round picks in this draft, so they have the ammunition to get a deal done if they are really set on it. What if they end up trading the pick they got for Amari Cooper for Antonio Brown? That would be wild.
It sure sounds like a deal is going to get done before free agency opens on March 13th. That would probably be the best case scenario for everyone involved. At this point I would be pretty surprised if he ends up with the Titans, but I was pretty surprised to see the initial report.
