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. #truth https://t.co/MsSyBVd3Ny

OAKLAND, CA (GSM) – In a, “not-so-happy” new year, the Pittsburgh Steelers ended the 2018 season with a 9-6 record. Although they had more wins than losses , Pittsburgh missed the playoffs when the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Cleveland Browns and secured the 6th seed in the AFC.
This year’s “Photo of the Season” is JuJu Smith-Shuster’s tiptoe touchdown in Oakland against the Raiders on December 9th, 2019. In a losing effort against one of the Steelers’ long standing rivals, the Raiders won the game 24-21 over the “Black N’ Gold.”
