In other words, the situation has reached DEFCON 1.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown might be on borrowed time during the offseason. He also ruled out the possibility of the team releasing him, but acknowledged that "all other options are on the table".

While the Steelers' season is in the books, they aren't allowed to make any roster changes until March 13 - that's the first day of the National Football League off-season.

According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin wants to add to his staff, bringing another full-time assistant beyond the staff he carried a year ago.

"We'll look at all the options", Rooney said "We're not going to release him, that's not on the table".

"All options are on the table", Rooney said. "We're not closing the door on anything at this point", Rooney said.

The only problem is, trading him would be costly - not just in terms of the production the Steelers would be losing. The Steelers would save more than $15 million in real money in 2019, but they would owe $21.12 million in dead money against the cap, compared to Brown's $22.165 million cap hit if he remains on the roster. "If we decide something has to be done, we'll figure out how to deal with that".

Rooney told the media it would be "hard to envision" the star wide receiver in Pittsburgh next season after trade rumors and whispers of Brown's discontent with his teammates and the organization started swirling once the season ended.

Brown has not formally requested a trade. However, Brown will be 31 when the 2019 season kicks off so if the asking price is too high, San Francisco may not be interested.
