Antonio Brown's time with the Pittsburg Steelers is coming to a dramatic end but one team's loss could be the 49ers gain.
According to NFL Hall of Famer, Jerry Rice, he and AB have been talking about his want to come to the San Francisco 49ers saying,
"Antonio and I, we have always kept in communication. ...He wants to come [to San Francisco] really bad."
He went on to say,
“This guy, man, he’s a totally, complete team player...I don’t know what happened in Pittsburgh, but I know that this guy, if he comes here to San Francisco, he’s going to do everything possible to help this team to win.”

Speaking of Pittsburg, it's been a rocky season for AB. Even though he is under contract with the team for 3 more seasons, that doesn't seem likely.
Not only did AB take off "Pittsburg Steelers" off of his Twitter bio (see below), owner Art Rooney II doesn't believe that Brown will be playing for the team next season either. In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Rooney has said his return to the team would be "hard to envision" and when asked about releasing AB he said, "all options are on the table."
