Steelers' Antonio Brown absent from Monday practice

Steelers' Antonio Brown absent from Monday practice

Those issues were doubled this past Sunday, when Patrick Mahomes lit up their defense with six touchdown passes in a 42-37 Chiefs victory.

Based on the fact that just two weeks ago, Brown physically threatened a reporter on Twitter, it probably won't be the last time Tomlin has to speak to Brown about social media. 1/2 Steelers' WR Antonio Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus: "The tweet yesterday was not in reference to anything other than Antonio responding to a person he knows". He's a great player, don't get it twisted, but there's no doubt Brown is a diva and has some "it's all about me" in him.

If Brown is disciplined by the team or decides to pull a Le'Veon Bell (worst-case scenario), then the Steelers would need rookie wide receiver James Washington to step up.

Brown's absence on Monday came on the same day that he had tweeted, "Trade me let's find out", in response to a critic who suggested Ben Roethlisberger is the reason why AB's numbers are so high.

Earlier this year, Amazon acquired the smart doorbell maker Ring, which also makes devices that are compatible with Alexa . While all devices will have the ability to be connected with Alexa , only some will have Alexa built in.

Tomlin also said Brown hasn't asked to be traded. I'd just as soon leave all of those things in-house.

It is worth noting at this point that Brown was one of very few Steelers to publicly back Bell when he did not show up to the facility prior to the team's Week 1 game, while almost the entire offensive line and front office criticized Bell in the media.

Brown clapped back at former Steelers PR employee Ryan Scarpino, who tweeted about Brown on Sunday night following Pittsburgh's loss. "I give Randy a lot of credit not losing it on him". "There's time I've forced a couple balls to him". I won't utilize this forum to address such things. "That's just how I choose to approach it".

Tomlin said he won't comment directly on player happenings on social media, which features "gray area" and "very little accountability", but he made clear players should be held to a higher standard. This news comes after we saw Brown behave unprofessionally during the Steelers loss to Kansas City, and his "trade me" tweet, which was even more unprofessional. I understand sometimes you have some negativity. I think that this forum is a very professional one. That's frustration associated with not playing well and not winning.
