Steelers president Art Rooney II leaves option of trading Antonio Brown open

"We'll look at all the options".

Brown has been itching to get out of Pittsburgh and has even shown a desire to play for head coach Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers. "We're not closing the door on anything at this point".

Brown's absence in Week 17 resulted in a benching for the season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals, and during the week Brown had a flare-up in a team setting.
