PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - Antonio Brown confirmed Tuesday that he met with Steelers owner Art Rooney II and according to Brown it looks like a trade is all but certain.

In a tweet Brown said “Had a great meeting with Mr. Rooney today we discussed a lot of things and we cleared the air on several issues! We both agreed that it is time to move on but I’ll always have the appreciation and gratitude towards the Rooney family and @steelers organization.”

This is supposedly the first contact Brown has had with the Steelers since he missed the last game of the season after allegedly getting into a spat with a teammate (reportedly Ben Roethlisberger).

Coach Tomlin said during his final press conference of the season Brown had an injury and did not contact the team in enough time to play.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports the Steelers have agreed to work on a trade but Brown and his agent are not allowed to speak to other NFL teams.
