The player arrivals at training camp has become an event in it of itself. Just something about seeing these large men carrying body pillows and TV sets into the dorms is so special. No one made an entrance to camp quite as memorable as Steelers wideout Antonio Brown.
Brown rolled up into Latrobe in a custom-designed Rolls Royce decked out in Steelers colors and logos along with his autograph along the side of the car. The car wasn’t just for the sake of a flashy entrance, many spotted the car around campus throughout camp.
I’m sure his teammates wanted to make sure to at least get a ride or a turn behind the wheel of a car like that. Brown admitted to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler that the $500,000 promotional loaner but it sure made an impact hopefully similar to the impact Brown will make on the field this season.
