After an early morning report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that WR Antonio Brown to the Bills deal was close to being done, the bottom has apparently fallen out. It is now being reported that the Bills are walking away.
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 biggest hangup in the trade talks? Will Brown actually show up to Buffalo? Trade compensation and salary seems to have been lined up. The lingering question though was if Brown would go along with it. Evidently it seems to have thrown a big wrench into the deal.
So now the Steelers now must find another trade partner.
