Ben Roethlisberger denies 'blowout' with Antonio Brown: 'everything was great'

What reporters are saying about the Steelers and Antonio Brown

First, Brown reportedly had an incident with another player, which led to him sitting out multiple practices and then didn't play in Pittsburgh's 2018 finale against the Cincinnati Bengals. Then, Brown made a decision to leave Heinz Field at halftime, causing even more of a stir. He can make plays all over the field, and his speed allows him to rack up yards after the catch. "If there was a blowout, I certainly didn't see it", said Roethlisberger, who talked to Brown Thurs AM and "everything was great", but understands frustration from Brown being gone late in week.

Tomlin did not deny that there comes a point when a player could be more of a distraction than he's worth.

"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.

Despite increased team success , the wideout's production actually dipped following the team's midseason firing of Hue Jackson . Brown expected to play on Sunday regardless, but was not used by the Steelers and left the stadium at halftime.

The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver unfollowed his own team on Instagram on Wednesday and started following the San Francisco 49ers, according to Yahoo!

"That's the kind of baffling thing to me". A source told Schefter Brown doesn't feel sufficiently appreciated in Pittsburgh.

Any deal for Brown would be an extremely hard one to pull off, though, considering he is owed over $20 million next season.

"Ben Roethlisberger says on his radio show (93.7 the Fan) he had no issue w/ A. Brown". "Like I said, I'm blessed to play with him and I consider him one of my closer friends". Ben Roethlisberger says Brown won't even call him back - and Tomlin said he's "disappointed" with the way the WR's been acting.

When asked if Brown quit on his team, Tomlin answered: "You can call it what you want to call it". Probably not, but if he maintains this level of production for a few more years and avoids injuries, he may very well go down as the best wide receiver the game has ever seen.
