Per a late-night report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Bills are closing in on a deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers to take a star receiver off their hands.Brown, who turns 31 in July, has been one of the best receivers in the NFL for each of the last six seasons. During that stretch, he’s been voted to the Pro Bowl every single year, and chosen as a first-team All-Pro in a four year stretch from 2014-2017. With a 686/9145/67 receiving slash from 2013 through 2018, Brown leads the NFL in receptions, yards, and receiving touchdowns over the past six seasons, and no one really comes close to those stats.The Bills have been tasked with creating a supportive environment for second-year quarterback Josh Allen. Adding the league’s best wide receiver will certainly help Allen, at least on the field. This move allows existing targets like Zay Jones and Robert Foster to thrive in secondary roles, rather than asking one of them to lead the receiving corps.The big question with Brown is whether he can put aside his personal desires for the sake of team unity. At the end of his tenure with the Steelers Youth Jim Kelly Jerseys , Brown skipped meetings and came to practices late, leading to a benching in the final game of the year. In the offseason, he publicly aired grievances with his teammates and coaching staff, talked about his desire for more guaranteed money in his contract, and forced the Steelers to trade him away. Will he cooperate with Sean McDermott’s process? Can the Bills afford to pay him what he wants, both financially and organizationally?Having been traded, Brown’s signing bonus will be accelerated onto Pittsburgh’s salary cap as dead money. He’s owed $15.1 million in 2019, $11.3 million in 2020, and $12.5 million in 2021, the final year of his contract. None of that remaining money is guaranteed, outside of a $2.5 million roster bonus that’ll be paid out shortly. If Brown’s expecting a raise at 31 years old, he’s probably out of luck; he’s already paid handsomely for an NFL receiver. But to ease his mind, the Bills could potentially convert some or all of Brown’s $15.1 million salary into a signing bonus, paying him the cash up front and spreading the cost over the remaining three years of his deal. That would be a surprising move, though, because it hews closer to Doug Whaley’s financial methods than to Brandon Beane’s.With Brown’s acquisition Jim Kelly Jerseys Stitched , the Bills can check off the box for a receiving target for Josh Allen. Still to come: Reinforcing his offensive line, and replenishing an empty tight end cupboard.Update 7:30 a.m.:Adam Schefter reported that the Bills were no longer in the Antonio Brown trade talks. Ian Rapoport eventually confirmed the new report before general manager Brandon Beane released a statement confirming a Brown trade was not going to happen.Carry on with your Friday. Smurfs, drops, and great defense on Friday." NewsNotesBills training camp 20192019 Buffalo Bills Training Camp recap: Day 2New,61commentsSmurfs, drops, and great defense on Friday.EDTShare this storyShare this on FacebookShare this on TwitterShareAll sharing optionsShareAll sharing options for:2019 Buffalo Bills Training Camp recap: Day 2TwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailAfter the Buffalo Bills’ offense launched training camp with a surprisingly competent session, the defense battled back in a big way for day two. Defenders shut down plays left and right, with Tremaine Edmunds and E.J. Gaines getting in the mix for pass breakups. Dean Marlowe intercepted one of Josh Allen’s tipped passes in the 11-on-11 session. The offensive players did themselves no favors, with a slew of drops and overthrows from each set of players. At one point, within five minutes, Robert Foster, Isaiah McKenzie, Ray Ray McCloud III, and Dawson Knox had each dropped a pass, and Brian Daboll yelled at the offense to focus better.Following that moment Youth O. J. Simpson Jerseys , Josh Allen flipped a switch and started threading the needle for a few narrow completions over the middle. The offense hit a groove, but still couldn’t find pay dirt to the same extent they’d had in yesterday’s practice. All-in-all, it was the defense’s day.Positional BattlesOffensive lineSpencer Long worked at first-team right guard today, pushing Jon Feliciano down to the second string. Cody Ford continued working with the starters. The coaching staff also tinkered with the backups, placing Ty Nsekhe at left tackle and LaAdrian Waddle on the right.CornerbackOne of the starting spots was a rotation today, with Levi Wallace, Kevin Johnson, and E.J. Gaines all taking turns at outside cornerback with the first string.Wide receiverWhile John Brown, Cole Beasley, and Zay Jones were the top three receivers again, both Robert Foster and Andre Roberts took reps with the starters today. At this point, the bigger drama may be among the half-dozen wideouts vying to be the sixth player in the group on the 53-man roster.SafetyRookie JaQuan Johnson was seen practicing with the second string today alongside Kurt Coleman, in an upset over Dean Marlowe. The other person of interest is second-year defensive back Siran Neal. While he’s been a third-string safety so far, he seems to be the team’s lead gunner, and they’ve also been giving him reps at nickel cornerback.Injury ReportTight end Jason Croom was the only Buffalo Bill missing from today’s practice. The coaches announced that Croom is dealing with a hamstring injury, and apparently it’s the same hamstring that he dealt with during OTAs in the spring. Croom’s absence gave more reps to Dawson Knox and Lee Smith on the first string.LeSean McCoy came out of practice at one point O. J. Simpson Jerseys Stitched , having his left heel looked at by a trainer. He was taken out for a period of time, but returned for a few reps near the end of the session.MiscellaneousThis quote from Sean McDermott:It was “superhero and princess day” at training camp today, hence... Bills Darth Vader?Your daily dose of Brian Daboll alchemy: A designed QB run, off a fake jet action handoff to motion receive Cole Beasley, with two pulling offensive linemen.The Bills have been focusing on situational football early in camp. Yesterday was red-zone work. Today it was no-huddle plays, complete with coaches wearing headsets for calling plays.Ed Oliver was still working with the second string today, but he had a great rep during practice, bulling the 6’8” 320 pound Ty Nsekhe right into Matt Barkley’s space.Tyree Jackson is two-for-two on being the first player out onto the practice field. Someone get that kid a lunch pail.For fantasy purposes, keep watching John Brown, Cole Beasley, and Dawson Knox. Early on, they seem to be the players with the most to gain in terms of target opportunity.
