In talking about the drama, current Denver Broncos wide receiver and former Pittsburgh Steelers teammate Emmanuel Sanders seems to blame both guys for what we're seeing. Brown also reportedly had a midweek dispute with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger at practice.

"It all sounds familiar", Sanders said on NFL Game Day Morning of Brown's behavior.


"This is the leader of the team and you're going to throw somebody under the bus when you could've handled that interview totally different", Sanders said on the NFL Network. You can not turn your back on your brothers, not on the Pittsburgh Steelers organization that gave you an opportunity to make you who you are in terms of Antonio Brown the football player. Sanders called out Roethlisberger for criticizing Brown during radio appearances during the season as well as other Steelers wideouts.

As enticing as Brown would be for the Eagles, can you really imagine a locker room with Carson Wentz - who already takes flak for targeting Zach Ertz too much - having to now appease Antonio Brown's target rate as well. "I bet Antonio Brown is frustrated by that". Team owner Art Rooney II said earlier this week that he thinks it's "hard to envision" Brown being with the team next season. "Being around the Pittsburgh Steelers organization, Art Rooney doesn't say much, but when he says something, he means it".
