Antonio Brown Watches Mike Tomlin Presser With James Harrison, Teases 'Big Interview'

Antonio Brown Reportedly Missed Game Due to Dispute with Roethlisberger

REPORT: Antonio Brown Skipped Practice Most of Last Week After Dispute With Teammate

Last week, Brown reportedly had an altercation with a teammate - perhaps quarterback Ben Roesthlisberger - at a practice, and then missed multiple practices and meetings, before being benched, and leaving at halftime of Pittsburgh's season-ending win over the Bengals. Ben Roethlisberger says Brown won't even call him back - and Tomlin said he's "disappointed" with the way the WR's been acting.

Veteran reporter Jason La Canfora reported Tuesday Brown is frustrated because he believes Roethlisberger and head coach Mike Tomlin are too close.

As any 49ers fan knows, the greatest of all time is Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice, who joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday morning and discussed Brown's new accessory. Brown eventually appeared on the team's injury report with a knee injury, and he did not play in the team's season finale against the Bengals at Heinz Field.

I understand nobody wants to be criticized and Brown has been on the chopping block all week, but to call a former teammate something that severe is over the line.

Tomlin said Brown arrived at practice last Wednesday reporting discomfort in his lower body.

With such a high salary in 2019, and a clear disgruntlement between Brown and his quarterback, could the Steelers be persuaded to trade him for the right price? He can make plays all over the field, and his speed allows him to rack up yards after the catch. While Brown also wondered aloud whether the Steelers should trade him, a source told Rapoport that Brown was simply frustrated and was not making a trade demand. " Brown was accused of almost striking a toddler with one of the pieces of large furniture he hurled from a 14th-story balcony during an outburst in April, a lawsuit stated". "If there was a blowup I sure as heck didn't see it".

When asked about the player in the week offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner said: 'I'm not going to answer any questions about Antonio.

"When you lack success, when you fail, change is a part of it", Tomlin said.
