Steelers WR Antonio Brown responds to Art Rooney II’s comments

Steelers owner Art Rooney II doesn't envision Antonio Brown remaining with Pittsburgh

"Whether the situation can be reconciled and have him back on the team next year, we're a long way away from thinking that can happen". Is Brown merely talking about the deal that was agreed upon back then?

Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers have been at odds recently. The Pro Bowl receiver reportedly asked for but did not demand a trade after the incident, but he carries a $21.25 million cap hit for next season, so he likely would be hard to move despite his vast talent. That brought about plenty of speculation that Brown had played his final game in Pittsburgh's black and yellow.

"I'm not going to use those words", Rooney said of a trade.

"The bottom line is we were playing a significant game and he didn't do a good enough job of communicating of being available in the hours leading up to that performance", Tomlin said at the time. We'll see how things play out.

In an exclusive interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers president Art Rooney II said Thursday the team would not release Brown. There's no sense making the decision now. Another mid-round pick and a roster player would likely have to be part of the package as well.

Sending the ultimate shot that anyone can possibly do in the 21st century, Brown really stuck it to the Steelers with this one. A divorce between the two seems more likely now with Rooney speaking than it didn't before.

Well, the mercurial Brown responded on Wednesday with a cryptic Twitter post, including a photo of him shaking hands with Rooney after agreeing to a new contract with Pittsburgh in previous years.

Though Brown, 30, wants out, it's unclear what the price tag would be for the wideout who finished with 104 receptions for 1,297 yards and a career-high 15 touchdowns during the 2018 season.
