Antonio Brown Skipped Practice Most of Last Week After Dispute With Teammate

Report Ben Roethlisberger was involved in conversation that led to Antonio Brown's'flare-up

Tomlin did not deny that there comes a point when a player could be more of a distraction than he's worth. That incident reportedly led Brown to skip practice all week, which resulted in him unexpectedly being benched for the season finale against the Bengals.

As any 49ers fan knows, the greatest of all time is Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice, who joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday morning and discussed Brown's new accessory. Tomlin heard from Brown's agent on Sunday, who informed the coach that Brown was "feeling better", but the Steelers had already decided not to play Brown. "The guy not communicating is a very real element of discussion". Brown is better at his position than Roethlisberger is at his, and while the National Football League values quarterbacks above all, No. 84's skills are truly rare- and he's not heading toward his age 37 season like the big QB is.

The season was defined by both Le'Veon Bell's holdout and drama that unfolded behind the scenes between Big Ben and star receiver Antonio Brown.

While Brown was on the sidelines early Sunday, he was gone by halftime. They would get out from under the last two seasons with a trade, but in 2019 eat almost $20 million in dead cap space with a move.

Why Liverpool will not win the Premier League this season
Robertson, whose team thrashed Arsenal 5-1 on Saturday, acknowledged the importance of the clash. His words echo his manager's. "We need to do this progress". "We did well so far", he said.

Tomlin said that "it became hard to communicate" with Brown on Friday evening and Saturday. "I have not talked to him since then". "Like I said, I'm blessed to play with him and I consider him one of my closer friends".

"That's the kind of baffling thing to me".

Multiple sources told Kinkhabwala, however, that Roethlisberger and Brown had "a little bit of a disagreement" during last Wednesday's walkthrough. I'm sure Kevin, Coach Tomlin will be talking to him but going forward that's unacceptable.

"If they sign off, I always feel good about it". "Don't want to speculate a lot". This happened at the end of the year, you're not going to have a team meeting.
