At this point, Steelers star wide receiver Antonio Brown can't make it any clearer -- he wants to be on the 49ers.
The latest form of evidence comes via his Instagram. On Friday morning, Brown posted a Photoshopped picture of himself in a 49ers jersey being embraced by Jerry Rice.
Brown included the following quote that Rice said to 95.7 The Game earlier this month: "If you got a player like that, that you can get, that can really add to the offense of the San Francisco 49ers where you let those guys go play, I think you have to go for it."
Rice has pushed for the 49ers to go after Brown in a trade and knows firsthand how badly Pittsburgh's All-Pro wants to head West.
"He wants to come here really badly," Rice also said to 95.7 The Game.
Though Brown is letting his feelings be known, it sounds like he and the rest of us will have to wait. Steelers owner and president Art Rooney II expects any trade talk to heat up closer to the new league year on March 13.
There's almost two months until then, so who knows what Brown will do next. While he's under contract to wear black and yellow, it can't be more clear he wants to don red and gold.
