After a tense 2018 season, Steelers' star wideout Antonio Brown requested a trade from his long-time team on Feb. 12. Between tensions with franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, coach Mike Tomlin and Steelers' ownership and all the accompanying drama, Brown has decided that he's ready to move on.

Despite the rocky relationships and his absence from the team's regular-season finale against the Bengals, Brown still finished last season with 104 catches for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns. 

But after nine seasons in Pittsburgh, a new home will soon be in store for the veteran receiver.
