The agent for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is ready to see what the offseason brings for his client.

With Brown’s future with the organization up in the air, Drew Rosenhaus spoke about Brown on Sunday during an appearance on 7 Sports Xtra, a Miami-based sports show.

“I’m just gonna say that Antonio is a great, great player – a tremendous competitor, a great teammate,” Rosenhaus said in a 37-second clip released by the station. “Whatever happens this offseason, we’ll make the best of it. I don’t have any particular comment on what the Steelers may or may not do. Antonio has had a Hall of Fame career there, and we’ll be ready for whatever happens next.”

Brown faces discipline from coach Mike Tomlin and possibly could be traded in the offseason after he skipped a walkthrough and team meeting the day before the Steelers’ season-ending game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Brown also skipped a scheduled team meeting last Monday, the day after the season ended.

Trading Brown brings complications because of his $21.12 million salary cap hit in 2019. Brown is due a $2.5 million roster bonus on March 17, which is the fifth day of the new NFL calendar, so the Steelers could pursue a trade before that date.

Trades cannot be made until March 13, so the Steelers have more than two months to decided whether to keep the seven-time Pro Bowl receiver or end his career in Pittsburgh after nine seasons.
