Antonio Brown, arguably the most dominant wide receiver in the National Football League over the past decade, has stated his desire to leave the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Team president Art Rooney II told reporters last month that something changed with Brown the last week of the season and he wasn't sure why.

Of course, Brown remains under contract to the Steelers, so the 49ers are not allowed to publicly discuss the potential of Brown playing in Santa Clara next season.

Brown, a four-time All-Pro, has been embroiled in a dispute with the Steelers, who openly have discussed the possibility of trading him. An interesting proposition that doesn't seem so far off from reality any more thanks to Brown's latest Twitter post that all but confirms Brown is leaving Steel City. But the Steelers aren't giving the Patriots one of the best receivers in the NFL.

In nine seasons with the Steelers, Brown has 837 catches for 11,207 yards and 74 touchdowns. ESPN reported shortly afterwards that he has officially asked the team for a trade.

It has also emerged Brown was hit with two lawsuits in October for an incident that allegedly occurred at his South Florida high-rise last April.

The disgruntled Pro Bowl receiver, who was found guilty for reckless driving Tuesday morning after failing to show up to court, tweeted that he is moving on. The woman did not press charges and police have taken no further action.
