"We'll look at all the options", Rooney said.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have been embroiled in controversy ever since it was revealed that Antonio Brown wasn't injured for their crucial Week 17 game, rather he was suspended for the game because of his behavior towards Ben Roethlisberger and missing practices. "We're not closing the door on anything at this point".
The report comes from Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, who tweeted out the following on Thursday afternoon.
While the Steelers' season is in the books, they aren't allowed to make any roster changes until March 13 - that's the first day of the National Football League off-season. The team president added he and coach Mike Tomlin have not spoken to Brown.
As to if Brown will be with the team come training camp, Rooney said: "As we sit here today, it's hard to envision that".
Rooney says cap considerations will play a factor in how the Steelers move forward. "If we decide something has to be done, we'll figure out how to deal with that".
If the Steelers were to trade Brown, the price tag would likely be high, according to NFL Network. This won't be resolved anytime soon - March at the earliest.
Last year, all eyes were on running back Le'Veon Bell.
"I'm not going to use those words", Rooney said of a trade. We have two months to go before we can do anything. There's no sense making the decision now. It certainly sounds like the Steelers are open for business or, at the very least, open to the idea of being open for business.
