Antonio Brown says Steelers, teammates, fans are 'indifferent,' promises interview

Pittsburgh Steelers beat writer Joe Rutter was among the media who spoke to Pittsburgh Steelers' president Art Rooney II on Wednesday and part of the conversation was a reflection on last season.

"You have to remember he's been one of the most productive receivers in the league for a long time now". "He and Emmanuel Sanders, boy they went after it because Mike Tomlin used to tell them, 'two dogs, one bone.' And at that time we had Mike Wallace, Hines Ward, I mean we had a pretty good run for one of them to get on the field". If you evaluate the season, we didn't achieve our goal of winning the division but we finished a half-game (out) of winning the division. He feels that Brown will get along much better with quarterback Tom Brady than he ever has with Ben Roethlisberger (which doesn't seem to be hard, given how Brown and Roethlisberger have been feuding for weeks).

He reportedly skipped meetings and practices and didn't return Tomlin's calls.

Kylie Jenner v. Egg: The great Instagram battle of 2019
An egg has successfully dethroned Kylie Jenner as the record holder of the most-liked photo on Instagram . The record was just cracked and it's more egg-citing than you could guess: An egg .

The disgruntled star has since spoken with Jerry rice on Facetime and talked about his desires to join the San Francisco 49ers, along with "liking" photos of himself photoshopped in 49ers gear.

Meanwhile, emerging Lions receiver Kenny Golladay said he does not see any reason for his team to acquire Brown.

From Rooney's point of view, this entire situation with Antonio Brown changed dramatically over that 72-to-96-hour period during the final week of the regular season. Everybody knows we need to be better, including Mike (Tomlin), and there are no disagreements in the organization about that. All those guys have made plays this year.
