Orchard Park (WBEN) - Though a bombshell report late Thursday night had the Buffalo Bills swinging a deal for Pittsburgh Steelers Wide Receiver Antonio Brown, several NFL insiders and the Buffalo Bills General Manager squashed the rumor and confirmed that Brown will not join the Buffalo Bills.

In a late Thursday night tweet, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported that a deal was in the works between the Steelers and the Bills that would see wide receiver Antonio Brown heading to Buffalo. However, several reporters quickly poured cold water on the idea, and Brown himself posted on Instagram "Fake News" in the comments on a story about the trade. Brown has since deleted his post.

Here is the original report from Rapaport:

In every year since 2013, Brown has had at least 100 catches and 1,000 receiving yards for the Steelers. His falling out with the team and Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has become the NFL offseason's biggest story.
