Receiver Antonio Brown will be traded by the Steelers at some point this off-season. He wanted out of Pittsburgh after his relationship with the team took a turn for the worse during the last week of the season.
Brown ended up not playing in the team’s final game after missing practice due to being banged up and a reported altercation with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
The star receiver was on the latest episode of “The Shop” when he was asked what happened during the last week of the season.
According to Brown, he went to head coach Mike Tomlin to let him know he would need a couple of days to get ready for the game. He says the Steelers coach responded by telling him to go home.
Brown also took a shot at his soon to be former quarterback. He said Roethlisberger thinks he’s the owner of the team then criticized him for calling out receivers for their routes.
“All year (Ben) call me out when we lose a game he like ‘AB should’ve ran a better route.'”
“Why would Ben do that?”
“That’s the type of guy he is. He feel like he the owner. Bruh you threw the sh*t to the D-line man how the f*ck am I gonna run a better route?”

This shuts the door on any hopes of AB returning to Pittsburgh next season. There’s not a chance that’s going to happen.
