Antonio Brown wasn't happy with Bruce Arians calling him a diva

Antonio Brown wasn't happy with Bruce Arians calling him a diva

"There's too much miscommunication, too much ... diva", Arians said Tuesday on The Adam Schefter Podcast.

If the president and owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers says it's "hard to envision" Antonio Brown remaining with the team for 2019, well, it's probably a safe bet that Brown will be playing elsewhere after his "diva" routine this season.

Rooney talked about a variety of different topics including the Antonio Brown situation as well as contract talks involving head coach Mike Tomlin.

Brown, unsurprisingly, has heard Arians' comments. "We work hard to get to where we are".

"And at that time we had Mike Wallace, Hines Ward, I mean we had a pretty good run for one of them to get on the field. So the bottom line is I'm disappointed over what happened at the end of the season, and if there are lessons to be learned here we'll look at that and see what we can do better".

Brown, meanwhile, remains in major trade rumors, as it seems unlikely that he'll be back in Pittsburgh in 2019. Boy, they went after it because (coach) Mike Tomlin used to tell them, "two dogs, one bone".

The Rochdale branch of Marks and Spencer is not one of the latest stores the retailer has earmarked for closure. The company wants to move a third of its sales online and plans to have fewer stores in better locations.


During Arians's tenure as the Steelers' offensive coordinator, the team selected Brown in the sixth round of the 2010 National Football League draft.

He reportedly skipped meetings and practices and didn't return Tomlin's calls. He has instead responded to the Steelers' public words with cryptic social media posts.

The disgruntled star has since spoken with Jerry rice on Facetime and talked about his desires to join the San Francisco 49ers, along with "liking" photos of himself photoshopped in 49ers gear.

Brown followed up his tweet by teasing a "big interview", which he has done a few other times.

"I don't know where that comes from", said Rooney.
