Antonio Brown Skipped Steelers Practice On Monday

Antonio Brown Wasn't At The Steelers Facility For Monday Meetings

The Steelers may have another disgruntled star to deal with.

As first reported by Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Brown was a no-show at the Steelers' facility on Monday. The twitter user, whose bio states that he worked PR for the Steelers from 2010-17, tweeted the following: "AB needs to thank his lucky stars, because he was drafted by a team that had Ben".

In regards to the "trade me let's find out" tweet, Tomlin stressed that the wide receiver did not request a trade from the team.

On Monday, after a former Steelers employee insulted his abilities, Brown chose to quote-tweet the comment by suggesting that he should be traded.

Brown's "Trade me" tweet was his second social media-flare up in as many weeks. He has 18 receptions for 160 yards and a touchdown through two games, a pace that would easily have him top 100 receptions for a sixth straight season.

As our John Breech noted on Monday, that was not Brown's only emotional display during the game.

Tomlin was asked if Brown had an excused absence. 1/2 Steelers' WR Antonio Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus: "The tweet yesterday was not in reference to anything other than Antonio responding to a person he knows".

Tomlin downplayed Brown's sideline behaviour, calling "negative exchanges" the byproduct of not playing well as a whole.

"We will talk about it and other things", Tomlin said. He left the Steelers locker room before speaking to the media after the game.

Brown's in-game behaviour has always been a flashpoint.

"I think it was just frustration", Roethlisberger said during his weekly appearance on 93.7 The Fan.

Tomlin would not clarify whether or not Brown's absence was excused but he did say, "I'm looking forward to visiting with him [Tuesday]".

Asked if he's exhausted of Brown being the same player he's asked about repeatedly regarding social media issues, Tomlin bristled, then pointed to his team's 0-1-1 record heading into a Monday Night Football matchup with the 2-0 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"He's been a significant reason why we've been successful around here", Tomlin said of Brown.
