On Thursday afternoon, Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II made headlines when he said it would be “hard to envision” star wide receiver Antonio Brown on the team when they report to training camp in July.
The news comes on the heels of Brown’s alleged altercation with several teammates in the week leading up to the Cincinnati Bengals game in which Brown was benched for his actions. The star wide receiver allegedly threw a ball at quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and asked why the team wouldn’t trade him.
Perhaps the frustrations of a lost season came to a head for the Steelers, but now there is a real possibility that Brown is not with the team when the 2019 season kicks off.
After Rooney’s comments were made public, Antonio Brown had a comment of his own.
“Good Business,” Brown said.

The cryptic tweet plays along with Brown’s catchphrase, “business is boomin.” For Brown, business has been booming: the star receiver is the second-highest paid receiver in the league.
We’ll have to wait and see how this plays out, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see Antonio Brown in a new uniform next season.
