NFL offseason trade rumors often peak the interest of football fans. But when they include two of the game's best wide receivers, you know it's bound to be headline news.
It remains to be seen if a deal will get done for Beckham, but Brown met with Steelers' upper management today and it was reported that a trade is likely the best move for both sides.
Had a great meeting with Mr.Rooney today we discussed a lot of things and we cleared the air on several issues! We both agreed that it is time to move on but I’ll always have appreciation and gratitude towards the Rooney family and @steelers organization! #CallGod #Boomin pic.twitter.com/DEgURchvhW— Antonio Brown (@AB84) February 19, 2019
Which leads us to ponder one major question: Would you rather trade for Brown or Beckham?
Brown, a former sixth-round pick, does have an extra four years of NFL service under his belt compared to Beckham, but his output has been unprecedented.
Unlike Brown, Beckham Jr. started his career off with a bang in 2014, highlighted by his now-famous one-handed, three-fingered catch against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Not only did he have the highlight-reel catches, but OBJ's numbers were there to back it up. In his rookie season, the LSU product caught 91 balls for 1,305 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns – and that was despite missing the first four games of that season.
Of course, these receivers are both uber-talented, but it's the diva mentality that gives each of them a bad rep. While teammates of both wideouts insist they're great guys and hard workers, it does put a ton of stress on a quarterback when they essentially have to force balls their way in order to keep their most-talented asset happy.
