If so, this reporting is incorrect and he's absolutely worth a first round pick.NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos "may be plotting at run" at trading for Antonio Brown.
The Jets, 49ers, and Colts are also expected to have interest. Pittsburgh has made clear they plan to move on from Brown despite his dead cap hit. Brown is entering his age-31 season and is one of the highest paid receivers in the league, so he's unlikely to command the first-round value Oakland got for Amari Cooper. The Steelers may have to settle for a pair of Day 2 picks.
