According to Colbert, who spoke Friday with NFL Network, three teams have reached out to the Steelers regarding a potential trade for Brown.
However, as he mentioned earlier this week in speaking with media at the Rooney Complex, Colbert went on to emphasize that he has no intention of getting rid of Brown just to cut ties with him. The team is looking for a real return and some real value, and he maintained that stance in Friday's update.
"Specifically, we will not be discounting you on the trade market and we will not be releasing you,” Colbert told our own Dale Lolley regarding Brown onWednesday. “All that being said, we’ll take a positive approach. If someone has an interest and wants to make a move, either a significant pick or set of picks or a significant player plus picks and we think it will benefit the Pittsburgh Steelers in the long run, great. If not, then we’ll make that decision at that point."
While none of the three teams interested in Brown is currently known, Lolley took a stab at some odds of where Brown could eventually suit up next season. You can read those here.
