PITTSBURGH – The Black N’ Gold was in full effect at the Steelers’ practice facility Tuesday.
1st round draft pick Rookie Devin Bush (Michigan) took the field with fellow linebackers and defensive lineman during warmups in just his 2nd week as a professional practice setting. Veterans Javon Hargrave (DT) and Cam Heyward (DE) shared techniques with teammates.
PITTSBURGH (GSM) — Still under contract, the Steelers’ number one receiver has made it known that he wants out of Pittsburgh.
Antonio Brown was drafted in the 6th round (pick #195) in 2010 and during his time as the Steelers’ biggest playmaker, he has made significant strides in the team’s success. There has reportedly been a difference of opinion and lack of communication between parties with Brown skipping the final game of the season due to a knee injury.
Update: Brown expressed his feelings quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in several exchanges with fans on his twitter page, saying the QB had an, “owner’s mentality.”
No conflict just a matter of respect! Mutual respect! He has a owner mentality like he can call out anybody including coaches. Players know but they can’t say anything about it otherwise they meal ticket gone. It’s a dirty game within a game. #truthhttps://t.co/MsSyBVd3Ny
