Earlier Tuesday, Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert spoke with the media at the NFL Combine. During his time on radio row, Colbert addressed the possibility of signing Antonio Brown.
Colbert didn’t mince words and made it clear that Brown will NOT be in a Steelers uniform any time soon. The general manager said the team will always be concerned with how he is as a person, but he won’t play for the team again.
“We’re always going to be concerned about Antonio Brown the person,” Colbert said. “We have moved on from Antonio Brown and Coach [Mike] Tomlin addressed that the last time he spoke with the media that we’re worried about Antonio Brown the person.”
“He will always be a Steeler in that regard, but in that regard only.” Colbert’s comments come just a week after Mike Tomlin said the same thing on ESPN’s First Take.
Here are his full comments.

The former All-Pro wide receiver started the 2019 season as a member of the Steelers. However, after a controversial end to the 2018 season, the Steelers moved on from Brown before the 2019 NFL draft.
After bouncing around the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots, Browns found himself out of the league.
Will he be back in the NFL next season?
