Pittsburgh Steelers Steelers catcher, Antonio Brown, told ESPN Tuesday that he was not "angry" with the team, but that he was maintaining his desire to be on the ball. to be exchanged.
Brown, who discussed his past, present and future with ESPN after a visit to his Miami neighborhood of Liberty City for an interview broadcast this weekend, said the recent General Manager Kevin Colbert's comments on Ben Roethlisberger confirmed his own feelings. .
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said more and more teams have been asking for star receiver Antonio Brown, who is part of the trade group after meeting with team officials last week.
Colbert told reporters last week that Roethlisberger "has 52 children under his command, quite honestly," while explaining that he wanted the players to turn to Roethlisberger for advice and wisdom.
"He pretty much just explained what I had already told everyone (on social media)," Brown said. "He just confirmed that he confirmed everything I said."
Colbert then tried to clarify his words, telling the NFL Network that the Steelers did not have a "group of juveniles" and that Roethlisberger remained "the undisputed leader" of the team.
"Of course, he tried to clarify things because, you know, he told the truth and he will go back on his words," Brown told ESPN. "But what adult man is he calling another adult man? Fifty-two children, you have no respect for these guys, they are guys who work for you, and that's what it is. I'm telling you it's my problem You know what I'm saying It's all about respect.
"… things do not improve, they do not change, you see what I mean, he just said there are 52 children and that's what it is [Roethlisberger]. Bro, it's a team. … so that's what it is, dude. Just understand the truths. "
Brown is officially on the market after meeting the Steelers brass earlier this month in South Florida. Both parties agreed that it was best to work on a transaction, although Colbert made it clear that the team wanted "significant compensation".
Brown holds an NFL record with six consecutive 100-shot seasons, but he frustrated the organization when he failed to show up for a working day in the 17th week and was sidelined for the final of the season.
