The Steelers have been reported to be actively shopping Brown, who has stated publicly that he wants out of Pittsburgh, so the news didn't come as a huge surprise.
What was the issue? There's just one problem: According to Brown, this isn't actually happening.
Reportedly, Brown himself played a big role in nixing the proposed deal.
It's unknown how the Raiders will approach the situation at this point, but Brown's potential unwillingness to report to Buffalo could impact trade offers. Another team involved in trade discussions earlier in the week, I'm told, walked because it was communicated to them that Brown wanted, again, to be the NFL's highest-paid receiver under a new contract. Russini also reports that the Tennessee Titans backed out of trade talks for the embattled superstar.

But even when Busch lost the lead, he was still able to remain inside the top-five, finishing fifth by the end of the race. Seven-time series champion Jimmie Johnson finished 19th, and he sits 18th in the overall points.
It should only get harder for the Steelers to find a taker for Brown now that the All-Pro receiver has flexed his muscles.
Bills reporter Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News tweeted Thursday, per an National Football League source, that while the team had "inquired" about Brown, another source described a deal with the Steelers as "unlikely". We have all been talking about how Brown doesn't have any control over his next team but as we've already seen if he doesn't want to play somewhere he has the power to either nix the trade or simply not play.
However, if the Bills did land Brown, he would provide an immediate boost to the NFL's second-worst passing attack last season.
Past year with Pittsburgh, Brown caught 104 passes and added 15 touchdowns for 1,297 yards. The Steelers won the game, but still missed the playoffs for the first time in five seasons.
