Brown's future has been a source of speculation since he was made inactive for Pittsburgh's Week 17 game against the Cincinnati Bengals following a heated argument earlier in the week with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Brown requested a trade after having issues with Roethlisberger and head coach Mike Tomlin.

Steelers President Art Rooney II addressed the possibility of Brown's return to the team in 2019 during a conference call on Jan. 23. 

"There are a lot of factors we have to take into account on it," Rooney said. "We'd have to sit down with Antonio and understand where he is and make sure he understands where we are. There is some work to do before we figure that out."

Brown, 30, is under contract through 2021 and will make $12.625 million in base salary with a $22.165 million cap hit next season. He was named to the Pro Bowl for the seventh time in 2018 after recording 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns on 104 receptions.
