The Pittsburgh Steelers and Antonio Brown are going their separate ways. The Denver Broncos get him and more in this mock draft scenario.
The Denver Broncos have already made some major waves this offseason, trading for Joe Flacco and creating a frenzy in Broncos Country.
Is John Elway done wheeling and dealing? I highly doubt it.
If you clicked on this article, you probably are wondering what crazy scenario I have dreamed up that involved Antonio Brown. If you hate the idea of the Broncos trading for Antonio Brown entirely, I guess I’ll just see you in the comment section, or add your I’ll pass comments to my gigantic file cabinet full of them.
It was reported earlier in the offseason that if/when Brown became available, the Broncos would be among the teams interested. I doubt the trade for Flacco has really limited that interest if it truly existed in the first place.
The rumor right now is that the asking price for Brown isn’t going to be very high, and for those worried about the cost of trading him in terms of finances, it’s not your money so why do you care?
In all seriousness, Brown’s remaining base salary totals of $12.625 million, $11.3 million, and $12.5 million are a bargain for a player of his caliber in the NFL. Not to mention, like with Flacco, those base salaries are not guaranteed, so the Broncos could get out of it at any point in time if things go sour.
Let’s take a look at a mock draft scenario that includes a trade for Brown, and what could happen with both he and Flacco on the roster.
