What's going on with Antonio Brown and the Steelers?

He followed that up Monday, writing "trade me let's find out" in response to a tweet suggesting that his National Football League success is tied to the fact that he has Ben Roethlisberger throwing him passes.

Antonio Brown does not want to be traded by the Steelers and was not with the team Monday because he was dealing with a personal matter, his agent said Tuesday.

Although he's one of the best players in the NFL, Brown has long had issues with team personnel and has been admonished by head coach Mike Tomlin in the past for not buying into what the team is trying to do. 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".

On Monday, after a former Steelers employee insulted his abilities, Brown made a decision to quote-tweet the comment by suggesting that he should be traded. That's not anything more than him encouraging his coaches and teammates to win.

It said Israel had "set up" Russian Federation , warning it about a planned operation one minute beforehand. The official added that the plane was downed by a Russian-made missile system which was sold to Syria.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus said that Brown's tweet "was not in reference to anything other than Antonio responding to a person he knows. We can end this right here and now".

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

But, well, after firing off that tweet, we don't know what Brown did.

While Tomlin declined to discuss Brown's tweet with reporters, he did say he would be meeting with Brown at some point on Tuesday. "There were some negative exchanges on the sideline". And now two weeks into the season, things appear to have gotten a bit more hectic for the Steelers. "It's been a couple of instances now where you've asked me about Antonio regarding some social media-like things, I'll address that and address that very directly with him, but I will leave that between he and I". After Roethlisberger scored on a three-yard run with just south of two minutes left to play, Brown didn't celebrate with the team, instead walking off the field by himself, fueling speculation that he might be upset. "I give Randy a lot of credit not losing it on him". "That's just how I choose to approach it".
