What the f-? I'm over here wide open. You need to give me a better ball! Brown feels Roethlisberger should have taken more responsibility.

When asked about where Brown was going to play next and if he was anxious teams would weigh in his behavior Brown laid it all out there. "I don't even need the game. At least ask a (guy) how he feels first".

Brown said the drama started when he met with coach Mike Tomlin about feeling "a little banged up", going into the Steelers' game against Cincinnati. "I need you to get out there like, but it's like why I got to be acting?" "So, he's like, 'If you're banged up, man, just, you know, you can just go home ...' Like, 'You ain't even got to be here'".

"I'm going to war for these guys, putting my life on the line and it's an unknown", he added.

"It's a controlled environment to where they could, they could kind of determine if, if they want to let me eat or not", Brown said. Because now they're showing me the reality.

When Carter asked Brown if there was any chance he'd go back and play for the Steelers, Brown said there was "too much smoke".

"There's no way he's going back to Pittsburgh,"James said". Others also have made initial inquiries. The long saga between him and the team - one that began to unravel with a season finale benching followed by social media rants amidst rumours of a trade request - reached its pinnacle with a meeting between the player and team owner Art Rooney II, after which Brown said it was determined that a trade would be best for all involved. Like, who don't like to get swaggy?

"So I'm like, 'Damn, that's where we're at?'"

"But that's the narrative they try to create". "'Yo, this guy a distraction".

The relationship between Brown and the Steelers has quickly soured, however. While talking with LeBron, Anthony Davis, Jamie Foxx, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, and Jerrod Carmichael, the Steelers star WR spoke in depth about his current situation with the Steelers and his desire to be traded.
