Antonio Brown is certainly becoming a villain in Buffalo in the wake of his not wanting to come to the Bills via trade.

On Tuesday, Brown released a piece of audio, containing a phone conversation between himself and his agent Drew Rosenhaus. The conversation takes place before he was traded to the Oakland Raiders:

Rosenhaus can be heard saying that he talked to the Bills, but wouldn't even give them a number they'd be looking for on a contract. For a player that was looking to become the highest paid receiver in NFL history, one would think they'd at least want to hear the Bills out.

The Bills, obviously, didn't get the same kind of talent in free agency that Brown possess. However, they did get a little younger. Brown will be 31-years-old at the start of next season, while free agent additions John Brown and Cole Beasley are 28 and 29-years-old respectively.

It was reported that the Bills offered Pittsburgh to swap the ninth for the 20th pick in the draft in order to land Brown. The Steelers ended up doing much worse, fetching just a third round pick and a fifth round pick from Oakland. However, Brown did get his money as the Raiders made him the highest paid receiver in NFL history.
