Antonio Brown removed 'Pittsburgh Steelers' from Twitter bio

Antonio Brown removed 'Pittsburgh Steelers' from Twitter bio

If the Pittsburgh Steelers trade Antonio Brown, the expectation is they can get a nice haul - but not a first-round pick.

As of Sunday night, it now simply says, "All-Pro WR". As he removes mention of the Steelers and unfollows the team on social media, he started following the 49ers and several of their players since the end of the regular season. Since Week 17, Brown has reportedly gone MIA and not returned coach Mike Tomlin's calls.

"This is the leader of the team and you're going to throw somebody under the bus when you could've handled that interview totally different", Sanders said.

Under the cover of the divisional games being played today, Antonio Brown likely thought he could do something without being noticed since everybody was preoccupied with football games.

As enticing as Brown would be for the Eagles, can you really imagine a locker room with Carson Wentz - who already takes flak for targeting Zach Ertz too much - having to now appease Antonio Brown's target rate as well.

He also addressed team owner Art Rooney's declaration, which said the organization wasn't looking to release Brown, but that "all other options" were viable. "I bet Antonio Brown is frustrated by that". It's well worth watching from someone who starred for Pittsburgh from 2010-13.
