The superstar wide receiver has been linked to trade rumors since the end of last season after making it known that he wanted out of Pittsburgh.
“Steeler Nation, thank you for big nine years! Time to move on and forward,” Brown wrote in the captions for the social media posts. Brown also included a peace sign emoji and the hashtag “#NewDemands.”
The video featured various highlights from Brown’s decorated NFL tenure. It also featured the Lil Uzi Vert song Do What I Want. The song features a chorus, including it repeating the line “Now I do what I want, now I do what I want.”
It also features the lines: “Everybody know I’m better, yeah. Yeah I’m better, yeah. It don’t matter, ay, pocket fatter, aye. Nowadays I’m on my haters they got sadder, aye. That’s money longer.”

The four-time All-Pro signed a four-year, $68 million contract extension with the Steelers in 2017. Brown, 30, was a sixth-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. He also pleaded guilty to a reckless driving charge on Tuesday in Pittsburgh, stemming from a November incident when he was caught driving at more than 100 mph.
Brown has already fueled speculation about a move to the San Francisco 49ers this offseason by posting a photo of himself in the team’s uniform. He is expected to draw a large amount of interest around the NFL.
Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey proved that by commenting on Brown’s Instagram post of the video. Ramsey wrote “come to the Jaguars with Teddy Bridgewater.” Several other NFL players called for Ramsey to come to the Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore Ravens and the Miami Dolphins, among other franchises.
