Antonio Brown Responds To Steelers Owner’s Comments With Cryptic Tweet

Antonio Brown Peter King

But, as Art Rooney II told the Post-Gazette Thursday, while it's "hard to envision" Brown being with the team in 2019, that's not going to be because the Steelers have released the disgruntled receiver. "We'll look at all the options".

Detroit is listed with the second-best odds to acquire Brown, either via trade or by signing him if the Steelers decide to release him.

"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". But there's no sense on closing the door on anything today.

"As I sit here today, I'm not going to say that's going to box us into anything".

After the incident, she was "horrified" about his reaction and said that "by law, we are supposed to report things like that". She said CEO Bill Timmons, who resigned on Monday, told them not to report on an incident back in 1998.

Brown, 30, did not play in the Steelers' regular-season finale, which saw Pittsburgh miss out on the playoffs despite a 16-13 win over the Bengals. The star wide receiver got into an altercation at practice with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger a few weeks ago, which led to Brown sitting out the last game of the season.

Sending the ultimate shot that anyone can possibly do in the 21st century, Brown really stuck it to the Steelers with this one. Rumors began swirling about a disagreement between the receiver and the team's franchise quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, after Pittsburgh decided to make Brown inactive against the Cincinnati Bengals.

In 15 games, Brown recorded 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns, setting a new team record for majors. Brown's current deal with the Steelers runs through 2021, with an average annual salary of $17 million. Brown also is very close with Pro Bowl TE George Kittle and has started following several 49ers players and the team's official account on Twitter, so make of that what you wish.

Rooney said the cap hit would not play into the team's decision.
