Antonio Brown disciplined by Steelers after no-show

Report Antonio Brown Did Not Report to Work And the Steelers Are a Total Mess

If the winless Pittsburgh Steelers thought the Le'Veon Bell contract situation was their biggest headache, they might be wrong. The latest comes from Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, who did not report to work on Monday. Brown's Monday absence caused a firestorm of speculation that he was unhappy with the franchise.

Brown's absence speaks to the extreme dysfunction taking place in Pittsburgh.

It continues a disastrous few months for the Steelers, who lost to the Jaguars in the divisional round previous year despite playing at home before failing to come to terms on a longterm deal with Bell, who refused to sign his franchise tender and remains a holdout.

"The tweet yesterday was not in reference to anything other than Antonio responding to a person he knows", Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Following the game, Brown hurriedly left the locker room prior to media availability.

Roethlisberger's comments came on the same day Brown returned to the team.

Weather warning as Storm Helene blows in
A Met Officer forecaster told the News Letter: "At the moment we have a yellow wind warning which fringes parts of Co Down". Met Éireann has warned of "high intensity" rainfall on Monday as Storm Helene crosses Ireland's path.

On his weekly radio show Tuesday, Roethlisberger said he doesn't believe Brown wants to be traded but plans to speak to his receiver Wednesday. "We can end this right here and now". Pete Carroll is just as into fist-pounding and chest-bumping his players as Tomlin is, and the Seattle Seahawks have enjoyed great success under him. If I missed you on something, or if you're getting open and I didn't see it, let's just talk and communicate. "We're not going to want to take that away from him".

In two games, Brown has racked up 160 yards and one touchdown on 18 catches.

However, as we know, winning fixes everything and the next four games against reasonably competitive teams could be the deciding factor in whether Pittsburgh ever gets things turned around for 2018.

The Steelers face the 2-0 Buccaneers on Monday to close out Week 3.
