I guess Antonio Brown was right. It really was “fake news” all along.
After social media was set ablaze late Thursday night with word that AB was being dealt to the Buffalo Bills, the Pro Bowl wideout decided to take matters into his own hands. First, he hopped on Instagram to call the report, “fake news.”
Then, as reported by Jason LaCanfora, Brown made sure that it was in fact “fake news” by flat out refusing to go to the Bills.
As a result, the Bills have since pulled out of the Antonio Brown sweepstakes.
With suitors seemingly dropping out left and right, it could be tough for the Steelers to move Brown before their self-imposed Friday afternoon deadline.
It was previously reported that the Titans, Redskins and Raiders were all in the running. The Packers have also been mentioned as a possible landing spot for AB.
Whether or not any of those teams continue to pursue Brown, and whether he accepts a trade to any of those clubs, remains to be seen.
