Odds on Where Antonio Brown Will Play in 2019

Antonio Brown #84 of the Pittsburgh Steelers looks on during the game against the New England Patriots at Heinz Field on December 16, 2018 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ season may have ended when they failed to make the playoffs, but the drama surrounding the franchise is far from over.

Star wide receiver Antonio Brown is the latest Steelers player to voice his frustration with the franchise, as the 30-year-old has reportedly requested a trade from the only team he’s ever known. Brown’s problems with the club have been evident all year, yet things came to a head when he was deactivated in the season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals due to disciplinary issues.

The Steelers are in the unenviable position of either trading one of the best players in the NFL or holding on to him despite the existing tension with head coach Mike Tomlin and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, but sportsbooks don’t expect him to go anywhere.

Where will Brown go?

Bovada is offering odds on which team Brown will suit up with in Game 1 of the 2019 season, with the Steelers as the heavy -500 favorites.

The San Francisco 49ers (+275), Indianapolis Colts (+800), New York Jets (+800) and Oakland Raiders (+1100) are also available to wager on. Brown raised eyebrows on social media when he expressed interest in the 49ers via a tweet from San Francisco Pro Bowl tight end George Kittle, and Brown has since followed the Niners’ team account on Instagram as well as other players on the club.

Drama has been a theme of Pittsburgh’s season

Pittsburgh is no stranger to internal drama, as running back Le’Veon Bell’s decision to not report to the team in 2018 and decline to sign his one-year, $14.5-million franchise tender hung over the Steelers for the majority of the campaign. For a betting breakdown on where Bell could be headed next season, click here.

Unlike Bell, who’s set to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, Brown is entering the third year of a five-year, $72.7-million extension that’s already been restructured once. The Central Michigan product has a salary cap hit of $22.1 million this year, and if he’s off the roster, the Steelers will be forced to take on $21.1 million in dead money.

Where do you think Brown will end up? Is he bound for a divorce with the Steelers, or will Pittsburgh somehow find a way to patch things up with its frustrated superstar? Have your say in the comment section below.
