The Pittsburgh Steelers are not having a good star to their season. First, there was all of the Le'Veon Bell drama, and now Antonio Brown is causing problems as well.
During Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Brown was seen yelling on the sideline. He appeared frustrated after the game as well.
On Monday, Brown responded to a tweet from a former Steelers PR staffer questioning if he would put up big numbers elsewhere. His reply was "Trade me, let's find out."
Now, a new report from Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says Brown did not show up for work yesterday. The reason for Brown's absence hasn't been reported, but on the surface, this seems to be a bad look.
"It is not clear if Brown’s absence was excused by coach Mike Tomlin, but several sources indicated they did not know why Brown didn’t show up with the rest of his teammates for meetings and film review," Bouchette wrote.
Brown is the best wide receiver in football, and the key component of the Steelers' offense. If he's unhappy and not locked in, things could go south in Pittsburgh quickly.
