Antonio Brown's time in Pittsburgh appears to be up.

The Steelers wide receiver tweeted goodbye to Steeler Nation on Tuesday, all but assuring that a trade from the team that drafted him in the sixth round of the 2010 draft is inevitable at this point.

"Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years...time to move on and forward.........." Brown wrote.

Brown's future has been the subject of speculation since before the end of the regular season. He missed the Steelers' final week of practice and sat out the team's finale against the Bengals amid an alleged feud with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. His name has since swirled in trade rumors.

He was also accused of being involved in a domestic dispute in Florida in mid-January, though no charges were brought. He has since filed for custody of his daughter in the wake of the alleged incident.

Brown was additionally found guilty of reckless driving after failing to make his court appearance in Pittsburgh earlier Tuesday.
