For a player who’s been a living hell for the Pittsburgh Steelers in recent weeks, Antonio Brown says he hasn’t said anything this whole time.
He really didn’t say anything at first. When he was home missing practice and then leaving at halftime of the team’s Week 17 matchup, Antonio Brown was dead silent. The wide receiver did his business, let the team down, and maintained a cool and calm approach to everything.
Since then, he’s been nothing but noise. This process may still end the same way whether he was talking or not, but his instagram live videos with James Harrison and Chad Ochocinco and picture of Dan Rooney II when headlines appeared have been nothing but screams from the wide receiver.
Now, Brown says he isn’t saying anything. In a tweet, AB says the only thing he knows is that he isn’t causing the noise the media continues to talk about, even if he has been a social media star since Week 17.
Brown’s antics have landed him on the trading block with support from Steelers President Rooney II to trade him. It takes a lot for Rooney to speak his mind, meaning Brown’s silence he’s been demonstrating hasn’t been enough to remove his bad taste from the mouth of the Steelers organization.
Pittsburgh, their coaches and the fans may be missing something, as Brown has made it clear none of this is his fault. Maybe he believes the instagram live interview with Harrison while Mike Tomlin conducted his interview was nothing serious, or posting a picture with Rooney to match the headlines of the president admitting the team will trade Brown wasn’t making noise.
Either way, Brown has been anything less loud. The wide receiver has put himself on the highest pedestal and is using that platform to scream everything he can scream. The noise is certainly not quiet and it stems from the constant reminders that Antonio Brown is still on the roster.
But remember, #Donotdisturb the quiet receiver.
