The Pittsburgh had one objective this offseason before the new league year got here, and that was adhere to the trade request from Antonio Brown who had been raging in interviews and on social media about wanting to find another team.

The Oakland Raiders came calling and gave the Steelers a mere 3rd and 5th round pick for a guy who has had at least 101 catches, 1,284 yards, and eight touchdowns in each of the last six seasons.

That trade was so bad for the Steelers that even Madden wouldn’t allow it to happen.

When a popular game is smarter than an NFL front office, you have a lot of problems that existed well before AB.
