  • Antonio Brown

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported Brown elected to sit out practices after the heated dispute, and the Steelers' decision not to play him against the Bengals had nothing to do with a knee injury. Antonio Brown has generated some drama by hinting that he wants out of Pittsburgh, and there are rumbles that Brown and Ben Roethlisberger are having some relationship issues. "I've called him and texted him".

"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.

ESPN analyst Ryan Clark is a former National Football League safety for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and whether it be about the latest drama with Antonio Brown or his outbursts in the past, Clark has been very critical of the uber-talented receiver.

The quarterback added he didn't know why Brown was avoiding his teammates.

On Wednesday Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin denied the reports that Brown has formally requested a trade.

The emergence of second-year wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster, 22, could allow the Steelers to ship off Brown, 30, to a team looking for a boost in the passing game. "I consider him one of my closer friends".

Ex-Steelers safety Ryan Clark, who now works as an analyst for ESPN, shared a story on Monday that painted Brown as a player who has always put himself ahead of the team.

Brown has now reportedly requested the Steelers trade him, and some observers believe that's a possible outcome, despite a sizable salary cap hit.

Granted, the Steelers likely won't trade Brown. Tomlin was called by Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, Sunday morning to tell the coach his star receiver was ready to play after missing Saturday's walk-throughs.
