The Pittsburgh Steelers have been engulfed in yet another situation involving one of their star players with All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown being the latest after he made a decision to not show up to practice on Monday.
According to a report from Ed Bouchette and Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Antonio Brown did not show up to the Steelers' facility on Monday. And at least for Monday, the Steelers were down to one of their "Three B's".
The Steelers are a mess, and to their troubles - which include a tie against the Browns, a loss to the Chiefs, and a holdout by All-Pro running back Le'Veon Bell - they can now add wide receiver Antonio Brown.
There is clearly no desire from Brown to being moved but it may just be him venting some frustrations with how his team has played through the first two weeks of the season now holding a 0-1-1 record. And now two weeks into the season, things appear to have gotten a bit more hectic for the Steelers. They are 0-2 while allowing 63 points in that span.More news: Eden Hazard Heaps Praise On Chelsea Teammate Olivier Giroud

But if Brown is serious about wanting a trade, then we can only imagine the chaos that will take over the NFL.
Antonio Brown's agent is trying to calm the storm his client unintentionally caused. "I'll leave that between he and I", Tomlin said, per Bouchette. "I give Randy a lot of credit not losing it on him".
"I think it's just frustration", Roethlisberger said. We'll see how things play out in the coming days. "And non-football-related things, such as social media decorum and et cetera, so hopefully that'll be the last time I'll be discussing things such as that in this setting".
The best offensive player is out there coolin' it on the jet skis, the best receiver is skipping work in a huff, and the head coach is trying to piece it all together to prevent this season from slipping away entirely before the calendar page even turns to October.
