Antonio Brown is the happiest man on Earth.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Thursday night that the Steelers had traded their star WR to the Buffalo Bills.
The NFL’s official Instagram account posted the news via a photo soon after to which Brown himself commented “fake news”.
In what appeared like a moment of denial turned out to be true, with the Bills reporting that the trade talks that many believed led to a deal were dead.
Update from the #Bills on the Antonio Brown: After intense talks that went into last night, and almost getting there on trade compensation, Buffalo says they are out. The #Steelers now must find another suitor.

The Steelers will look for another potential suitor for Brown and trade him likely be the end of Friday.
