GREEN BAY -- The NFL has a lot of great wide receivers, but arguably the most-talented one has just requested a trade from his team.
Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers has requested a trade, according to Adam Schefter.

What would it take to pair Aaron Rodgers, arguably the league's most talented QB, with Brown? The answer is a lot.
Going into next season, the Packers have just under $40 million in cap space and have draft picks in every round, including two firsts.
Brown is owed a base salary of $12.6 million, a roster bonus of $2.5 million and will carry a cap hit of $22.1 million in 2019. He is under contract until the 2022 season.
The Steelers have not expressed any interest in moving the future Hall-of-Famer, but that could change in the coming weeks.
If the Packers wanted to add Brown, they would.
