The Tennessee Titans are one of three NFL teams showing trade interest in Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The three teams that have shown the most interest in wide receiver Antonio Brown to date are the Oakland Raiders, Washington Redskins and Tennessee Titans, per league sources. Thus, the battle for Brown could develop into a battle between Grudens, Jon and Jay.

This is quite surprising, considering Titans head coach Mike Vrabel subtly hinted recently that Tennessee wouldn’t be interested in the controversial wide receiver.

Perhaps the Titans had a change of heart, or maybe general manager Jon Robinson is just exploring every possible avenue to upgrade the roster this off-season.
Brown, his off-the-field distractions aside, is a game changing wide receiver that would instantly give the Titans one of the best one-two wide receiver punches in the league (along with Corey Davis).
But is the drama worth the potential on-the-field production?
That’s what Tennessee will have to decide.
They’ll also have to decide how much they’d be willing to give up for Brown. You’d have to think that Pittsburgh is hoping to get at least a first round pick for the dynamic wide receiver.
According to Schefter, the Steelers were previously seeking a first round pick and “other compensation” for Brown. They’ve recently reduced their asking price to simply a first round pick.
