Raiders’ Derek Carr would welcome Antonio Brown with ‘arms wide open’

Brown celebrates a first down against the New England Patriots in the third quarter of their NFL foo

NFL Network reported that the Saints are in the mix, but they don't have a pick in the first round of the draft and their second-round pick is well behind the Raiders.

Antonio Brown could soon be on the move. The most recent talks involving Brown point to the trade market having been narrowed down in a drastic way.

Three new teams have entered the fray within the last 48 hours, while the New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals are no longer pursuing Brown, Rapoport adds.

Among several issues raised by Brown, he took issue with the way the team handled his benching for the final week of the regular season.

Pittsburgh is looking to trade the seven-time Pro Bowler after he missed the last game of the season following an incident in practice.

They had to trade away Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper to get that kind of draft capital, but Gruden and general manager Mike Mayock are building the team they see fit and it wouldn't shock me at all to see Brown join the Raiders.

While the Steelers agreed to work on a trade, they have not given permission for Brown and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, to speak with interested teams, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

The report also said that the Steelers have begun telling teams "this is moving quickly and to give their best offers ASAP". In fact, ESPN's Adam Schefter has provided a more specific timeline, stating that the deal is expected to be in place by Friday. Brown may continue to get in his own way, and when he does, it might be said that when he does get in his own way, he's the only professional football player able to do so.

No one has an exact idea of what the return value is for Brown. Ideally, the Steelers would like to send Brown to the NFC and get him out of the conference altogether.
