Antonio Brown has Pittsburgh Steelers fans freaking out a bit this morning. The All-Pro wide receiver has a new tweet that has stirred up the fan base.
The Steelers are off to a tough start to the 2018 NFL regular season. Pittsburgh began the season with a tie against Cleveland. This past Sunday, the Chiefs outclassed the Steelers at Heinz Field.
An 0-1-1 start is certainly not what Brown or the Steelers expected coming into the year.
Brown has had a strong - though unspectacular - start to the year. He has 18 catches for 160 yards and 1 touchdown so far.
This morning, Brown responded to a tweet from a Steelers fan that suggested Ben Roethlisberger and the organization were responsible for a lot of his success.
"AB needs to thank his lucky stars, because he was drafted by a team that had Ben. And Ben got AB paid. You know darn well he wouldn’t put up those numbers for other teams," the tweet read.
"Trade me let’s find out."
Steelers fans are handling it well:
The Steelers are set to play in Tampa Bay next Monday night. Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. E.T. on ESPN.
