Should the Eagles trade for Antonio Brown?

Brown paid $426.77 in fines and has 30 days to appeal the guilty verdict but it appears as though he's more concerned with where he'll be playing next season - and apparently, it's not Pittsburgh.

Brown, a four-time All-Pro, has been embroiled in a dispute with the Steelers, who openly have discussed the possibility of trading him.

The star wide receiver tweeted "Thank you SteelerNation" on Tuesday, adding that it's "time to move on and forward" along with the hashtag #NewDemands.

Brown's future has been the subject of speculation since before the end of the regular season.

Brown allegedly pushed the mother of his daughter to the ground last month in Hollywood, Florida, according to a police incident report.

If the price gets too steep for any receiver-needy team, there will be plenty of other players to choose from when free agency begins. Brown is without question one of the best receivers in the National Football League - maybe the best receiver, and definitely a receiver that would make a huge impact on the Eagles.

A judge found Brown guilty of reckless driving at a hearing Tuesday morning. Brown would help the offense, but unless he is willing to sign a new contract with a lower cap hit, his play alone won't make up for all the holes the team won't be able to fill if they commit so much money to the receiver. Brown has recorded at least 1,200 receiving yards and nine touchdowns in each of those campaigns, with a 1,698-yard, 13-touchdown season in 2014 marking career-highs in both categories.
