Brown is entering the third of year of a five-year $72.7 million contract with the Steelers.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Brown has neither been traded nor released, but has requested a trade from the Steelers.

Brown has been with Pittsburgh his entire career but his relationship with the team has soured over the past year.

Brown is still under contract in Pittsburgh, but that marriage sounds like it's over, especially after the All-Pro wide receiver sent out this goodbye to Steelers fans on Twitter, telling fans that it's time to move on.

ESPN later reported Brown officially asked to be dealt.

The Patriots or any other team would have to pay a steep price to acquire Brown - likely a high draft pick (or multiple picks) in addition to a player or two. He was not seen as a star coming out of college and seemed nearly an after-thought when he was drafted in the sixth-round by the Steelers in the 2010 draft. 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.

The announcement came just hours after it was revealed that Brown was found guilty of reckless driving after not appearing in court today.

In nine seasons with the Steelers, Brown has 837 catches for 11,207 yards and 74 touchdowns. The mother of one of his children also filed a police report after claiming he pushed her during a dispute over their daughter.
