Following an underwhelming performance against the Chiefs, Antonio Brown was clearly upset on the sideline. Whether it was his confrontation with offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner or his decision to avoid talking to reporters, it became pretty obvious that he's not happy with Pittsburgh's production so far this season.

The situation escalated to new heights this afternoon, as Brown responded to a fan that said "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."

Brown kept his reply very short, saying "Trade me let's find out."

While this response may frighten several fans in Pittsburgh, linebacker Bud Dupree was nice enough to clarify the tone of Brown's tweet. "You know how AB is, especially after a loss like that," Dupree said. "Guys are going to say things. He just wants to help the team win as much as he can."

Brown is an emotional player, who wears his heart on his sleeve. Instead of panicking over his controversial tweet, fans should just relax.

Obviously, the Steelers aren't playing anywhere close to their standards. However, the season is still young and they'll have an opportunity to redeem themselves in Week 3.

It'll be interesting to see how Brown responds on the field, as the Steelers are desperate for a victory.
