Which player should demand a trade next?

With Steelers receiver Antonio Brown closing in on his much-desired trade to a new team, Friday’s PFT Live spun things forward, as it relates to other players wanting trades.

Specifically, we did a draft of which other players should want trades.

Big Cat and yours truly drafted the guys we’d most like to see demand trades. Not that any of them will or should or could. They’re just the guys we’d like to see give it a try.

The results can been seen and heard in the attached video. Watch it and then share some of your own thoughts in the comments.

And remember to tune in every Monday through Friday for PFT Live. The show starts on NBC Sports Radio at 6:00 a.m. ET, and with the final two hours simulcast on NBCSN from 7:00 a.m. ET to 9:00 a.m. ET. As you may have noticed, the two-hour TV simulcast is now re-aired on NBCSN from 9:00 a.m. ET to 11:00 a.m. ET.

  1. Thank god this is just sports. Sometimes it’s fun just to speculate on things like this.
    What if the “regular” news speculated like this, For example:
    What country should the U.S. launch a nuclear attack on?
    What world leader should the U. S. depose from power?
    What country should invade what other country?
    If the U.S. was a dictatorship, who would we want for a dictator?
    Would it be “fun” if the “real” news did things like this or would it be irresponsible and dangerous?

  2. Anyone from my favorite team, the Redskins. Danny and Bruce have destroyed the franchise. I feel bad for any player that gets drafted to that dumpster fire of an organization.

  3. Why should any player demand a trade?
    They voluntarily signed a contract.
    If I was the acquiring team I’d be worried this guy is a trouble maker and encourage my players to do the same thing.
    If I was the team the player was on, I’d stand firm and not trade him, otherwise it encourages more of the same behavior.

  4. Demarcus Lawrence?

    He seems like the best player franchised right now who stands to make the most money if he were hypothetically a free agent and was able to test the market.

  5. Since the majority of off-season drama comes from pittsburgh…

    … it will probably be another low character steelers degenerate.

  6. All the franchise players. If a team can’t re-sign a player too bad let the player be a free agent.

  7. My three demand for trade players.

    1 Ben Roethlisberger – Want to see the Steelers trade Mr Big Chest to the Raiders and then have Ben demand a trade to the Broncos so he can play against Mr Big Chest twice a year. Denver and Pittsburgh swap their #1 pick’s and Denver sends Flacco to Pittsburgh to make this one even more fun. With Flacco going to the former rival Steelers so he gets to play the Ravens twice a year.

    2 Ezekial Elliott – Would like to see Zeke demand a trade to the Eagles and watch the fireworks in JerryWorld begin.

    3 Andrew Whitworth – Would like to see Whitworth demand a trade to New England to take up Trent Brown’s (Free Agent) left tackle position. Because Whitworth knows a Sean McVay offense will never out play call Belichick defense. And Whitworth wants a ring.

  8. judging by the picture you posted and my inability to play videos, my detective skills tell me you want rodgers to demand a trade next.

    …i’m all for that.

    None. They signed a contract.

    Lol. yeah what pixy and fairy dust world do you live in?

  10. Jameis Winston, they have better crab legs on the West Coast…give me a break…the Maryland Blue Crab is far superior to anything on the West Coast…

  11. Really?
    Enabling the insubordination of employees now are we?
    Whomever this next player is, I will cease to respect him and will root for him to tear his Achilles and ACL ASAP.

  12. AJ Green. He is a great teammate who always ties the company line, never bitches about his contract and has said in the past he’s made more money then he ever thought he would, and would be mentioned with Brown and OBJ if he had better coaching and QB. His career path is about the same as Fitzgerald without being lucky enough to have Kurt Warner for a couple years.

  13. This is the NFL today players feel they are bigger than the game , Demand trade when they don’t get their spoiled way.

  14. Antonio Brown signed an extremely lucrative contract that made him (currently) the second highest-paid receiver in the game with a $19 million up-front signing bonus that’s his to keep. His complaints are that he doesn’t get the ball enough, his quarterback once called him out on the radio, and his coach–who’d ignored repeated violations of team rules–wouldn’t let him play after he’d feigned an injury to miss a week of practice before a must-win game. Now he demands to be the highest-paid receiver in the game for the team of his choice despite having three years left on his current contract.

    I’ve always supported players in their quest to be paid commensurate with their contribution to the game, and have always supported Steelers players like Nate Washington and Emmanuel Sanders, who left the Steelers on good terms when their contracts expired in order to pursue greener pastures. But allowing players to willfully nullify their contracts without cause will create chaos. Since the NFLPA hasn’t been willing to rein Brown in, the league will have no choice but to address this in the next CBA negotiations.

  15. Everyone player on the Packer’s offense who have to deal with Arron Rodgers’ pouting, talking behind their backs, and eye rolls and stare downs when a play does not work.

  16. Matt Stafford lol. He’s been conning delusional fans for years. Stafford is just good enough to pass the buck. Never have any expectations fallen on his as the blame always seems to be pointed to the front office or the offensive line, coaching, defense. Bottom line, if you are gonna cash that big ole check there is no excuses why you can’t get your team to the playoffs almost every year.

    The entire premise of ‘who should demand a trade’ speaks volumes.

    Just go with it. Later we are going to discuss who should demand out of their mortgage.

    Not going to fault blue crab, its really good. But the north Pacific has the best.

  20. It’s a given that every player who wants a chance at a SuperBowl before their career ends considers Aaron Rodgers and the Packers a better chance than at least twenty-eight other teams.

    Agreed, I grew up eating blue but now eat dungeness. They’re both good but dungeness is better.

    Matt Stafford. I’d love to see how good he could be on a decent team.
    _________

    Why so he can lose close games in a heartbreaking manner for another team?
    You know he is part of the problem there right?

    Its just that Lions are afraid to get themselves away from him like the Washington did with Cousins, cuz they know a team will snap him up immediately.
