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.”
